Let’s create Great Weddings Videos
You don’t always have to be a professional to create great Wedding Videos. Well, you might not get it 100% right like a professional videographer. But you can do a good job. What if you get a proposal to shoot your best friend’s wedding? Obviously, you know how to use a camera. If you agree to record his wedding, how can you do it properly? This article gives you tips on creating great Wedding Videos. Let’s begin.
1) Let’s make it beautiful: It could be the best day of your friend’s life. So you should capture all the beauty in style. As an amateur videographer, you may not know all the essential scenes to capture. So, the best thing you can do is following the photographer. He’s a professional, so make him your guidance. Capture everything in details, including behind the scenes. Make sure you include the theme in the footage. A common mistake the videographers make is forgetting or ignoring to include the wedding theme in the final footage. The flower decorations and colors add more value to Wedding Videos.
If possible, shoot in slow motion. It adds beauty to the moment you capture. Well, your camera may have more features than you know. Read the manual fully so. You can find helpful videos on Youtube about camera features. Search by typing your camera model for features. Get closer to a scene as much as possible. Using the focus function often is not a good idea when recording Wedding Videos.
2) He’s your best friend so you can ask anything: Well, I am talking about the likes and dislikes of the couple. You must know what the couple wants in the final footage other than the traditional moments. Because you are not a professional videographer, you may not know all about traditional and must moments to capture. Anyway, I am not going to explain the moments to capture in this article, but you can visit this web article on “essential moments to capture”(http://fundydesigner.com/23-essential-moments-capture-wedding-day/.)
3) The wedding ceremony is the toughest part: Also, it could be the most important part of Wedding Videos. You need proper microphones for clear audio. Well, that’s the whole purpose of having a video footage. You can’t hear from photos, but can from videos. If the built-in microphone in your camera is not good enough for the job, consider getting an external one (you should get an external microphone.)
4) Plan in advance: You are not capturing a video to publish on Facebook. You are capturing your best friend’s big day. So, don’t wait until the wedding day itself to plan what to capture and how to capture. The professionals know the importance of planning in advance to create great Wedding Videos. How much memory would you need? What if the camera stopped functioning? You should have a backup plan always.
Summation: You can create great Wedding Videos without being a professional, but you follow what the professionals do and how they do it. Recording a wedding is a big responsibility though. If you want to be on the dance floor taking shots, then don’t take that big responsibility. Concentration is an essential to capture tears and laughter.
