Hey everyone! A couple weeks ago I met with two different videographers and was able to pick their brains! I’m going to highlight the most interesting tips I gleaned from them. 🙂
Tips from Trent
- If you need good equipment but don’t want to buy it, use LensRentals.com
- If you want to buy good equipment, B & H photo
- Use the “flat” picture profile in the camera (least data loss) then in post processing…
- use “Cinestyle Technicolor to make colors POP!
- ManFrotto tripods are awesome
- Get adapters for your tripod mount so you don’t have to take the time to switch when going between tripod/monopod/steady cam.
- Keep audio between -12 and 0
Tips from George
- Focus on investing in the lens over the camera bodies
- Decide what you are looking for in terms of lighting before you buy (see this article here)
- Buy a cart to carry your equipment!
- Check out your location before shooting to be aware of room noise, neighbors and lighting situation
- Planning is King. Know what you want before you shoot to make the process go easier.
