Today’s Great Filming Tip: Keep it Straight!
One of the biggest mistakes I see on video [and in pictures] is the old first grade mistake of filming something with a slanted background.
When filming a wide shot of the Grand Canyon or your little sister jumping on the trampoline, keep an eye on the background or horizon. Anyone looking at your vids will notice this little but very big mistake. Now, if you’re shooting a heavy metal music vid and want a lot of movement and flare then it’s OK. But remember everything else should be level. Never film anything sideways, you will definitely be sorry when you play it back later.
