Tips for editing your video.
Get into your groove as a wedding videographer.
For those of you who plan to create your own wedding video but are overwhelmed by the details, check out these tips to keep stay calm and catch incredible footage.
While there are certain times it’s better to melt into the background with your camera, there are also times when you’ll need to flex your directorial muscles to achieve your vision.
“The first thing you need to understand about the wedding day is that you’re hired to be a creative director,” says Flom. “So if you walk into a room and the lighting is horrible, you have the ability to look at it and say, ‘What can I fix? What can I change?’” Sometimes all it takes is a gentle redirection to help a scene shine in its best light, literally and creatively.
Expect mistakes to happen. You’ll miss shots and things won’t go as planned, and that’s all part of the game. With experience comes expertise, but no two weddings are the same, and even the best in business are caught off guard sometimes. Don’t get discouraged; focus on making the best wedding video you can make, and take what you learned into your next wedding.
Lastly, don’t forget to relax and enjoy yourself at the wedding. After all, a wedding is just a big celebration and you get to film all the fun.
