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

  1. If you need good equipment but don’t want to buy it, use LensRentals.com
  2. If you want to buy good equipment, B & H photo
  3. Use the “flat” picture profile in the camera (least data loss) then in post processing…
  4. use “Cinestyle Technicolor to make colors POP!
  5. ManFrotto tripods are awesome
  6. Get adapters for your tripod mount so you don’t have to take the time to switch when going between tripod/monopod/steady cam.
  7. Keep audio between -12 and 0

Tips from George

  1. Focus on investing in the lens over the camera bodies
  2. Decide what you are looking for in terms of lighting before you buy (see this article here)
  3. Buy a cart to carry your equipment!
  4. Check out your location before shooting to be aware of room noise, neighbors and lighting situation
  5. Planning is King. Know what you want before you shoot to make the process go easier.
