Beginner Mistakes to Avoid | Raleigh Video Production

Avoid constantly zooming and panning in every shot. To help determine whether or not it’s needed, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Why are you getting closer?
  • Do you really need to get closer to your subject?
  • Would the scene look the same zoomed out?

Many great directors, including Hitchcock and Spielberg have shot entire movies without zooming even once, believe it or not. Of course, if the zoom is 100% needed, carry on. If not, just skip the zooming and move on!

Panning is also an issue with beginners. Panning is a movement from side to side or up and down called tilt. Those that are unsure of the camera tend to move it way too fast when panning, resulting in a movement that might make the viewer’s head spin! Move the camera as slowly as possible when panning to eliminate any and all quick movements!
