Hi! Welcome to the video shooting page! If you did not yet come from there, you may check out first our writing page if you like to see things about pre-production. Because now will be going to the production stage.
While you are already excited to learn stuffs in video shooting, let us first see some basic lessons in photography. These things are also needed in video shooting so we have to learn them as well.

I encourage you to do things in sequence however specially if you are still beginning to learn videography.
PARTS OF A PHOTOGRAPH
It might be that it’s already very basic to know about the parts of a photograph and we don’t need to talk about it anymore. However, no matter how basic it is, it is still essential to know them for us to learn how they come to play in the art of photography.
TYPES OF SHOT
Today, let me show you the types of shot that is applied in photography that you also need to do in your video shooting. Let’s see each of them and learn their uses too.
We hear the word angle a lot in our Geometry and Physics class before. And if you hate Math, it might be that you don’t wanna talk about that. Well, don’t worry because it’s not really that hard if we talk about camera angles in photography.

The first in the rules of composition in photography that I want to share is the rule of thirds. This is achieved by dividing your camera frame into nine equal parts having those imaginary lines in between. It is good to place then the subjects across those imaginary lines.

Digital Single Lens Reflect cameras or what we basically know as DSLRs are typically used for photography and not for videography. Not until about 2009 and 2010 came and the popularity of DSLRs in video production also arose. Many professional videographers were shooting video with DSLR because of its advantages in taking videos compared to camcorders.
