Cinematography tips for beginners

  1. Always film horizontally.
  2. Use a tripod or dolly for increased stability.
  3. Vary your shots, and remember that too much movement can be a bad thing.
  4. Give your people enough headspace.
  5. Ignore your photographer instincts (but only in some ways).
  6. Consider how you want to edit footage while shooting.

Always film more footage than you think you’ll need. You never know exactly how something’s going to turn out once you start editing, and it’s better to have too much footage — too many options — than not enough. Stay flexible and innovative too. When filming, try new shots, experiment with angles, and be willing to shift gears depending on the situation. Unlike 20 years ago, there’s no way you’ll run out of film!

Key Takeaways:

  • Always film horizontally.
  • Use a tripod or dolly for increased stability.
  • Vary your shots, and remember that too much movement can be a bad thing.
  • Give your people enough headspace.
  • Ignore your photographer instincts (but only in some ways).
  • Consider how you want to edit footage while shooting.
  • Shoot now, edit later.
