1. Take advantage of the custom white balance.
Take advantage of a custom white balance by using a grey or white card or a third party white piece of paper to white balance before you shoot.
This is to ensure that you won’t make your post production inadequate or get to a point when sometimes you can’t even save the shot.
This is where you shoot and on getting your footage back to the computer you realize it looks really really blue or nasty warm.
2. Use a tripod stand.
Use a tripod stand to avoid shaky shots and keep your work really stabilized.
You can also do trick shots with the tripod, for example pushing and pulls.
3. Take advantage of framing.
Sometimes you have to push something to the left or right, middle third, top half of the frame etc.
4. Use an ND filter.
If you shooting outside, make sure you use an ND filter, this is the same thing as getting sun-glasses for your camera.
5. Shoot with what you have.
Don’t hesitate to shoot with what you have example Iphone, smartphone, or even a cheap camera.
But always ensure you use a tripod or some kind of stabilizer to make your shots stable.
