The sunlight on an overcast day is a soft light ideal for photos and videos. And in this video tutorial, George and Kevin of Filmora will teach you how to emulate the look of sunlight when shooting indoors. It takes very little time, it’s a pretty affordable setup, and you can use it for both video and stills.
Slow motion sequences can add a lot to your videos if you know when and how to use them. Nowadays you can pull it off with almost any camera, so you may even be tempted to overuse it. In this video from Filmora, you’ll hear five do’s and don’ts of shooting in slow motion that will help you create better and more meaningful visual stories.
Nobody could have imagined, 15 years ago when GoPro launched their first 35mm film camera, what they would today become. While there are many great action cameras out there, the GoPro still remains the most popular. But it’s not going to give you the best settings right out of the box.
This video from Filmora as part of their Travel Series delves into the GoPro’s ProTune settings. Filmmaker Justin Brunelle explains how to get the most out of GoPro’s dynamic range by using flat profiles with ProTune. We also see how to get consistency from shot to shot by using the manual exposure controls.
Deciding what gear to pack when you’re travelling to shoot photos of videos is often tricky. Different destinations and plans can require different items. You’re not going to need crampons, for example, if you’re going into the desert. But you might, if you planned to explore the Scottish Highlands in winter. There are some things, though, that are very useful regardless of where you’re going or what you’re shooting.
We’ve covered Filmora’s travel video series before, but I felt this latest episode deserved a post of its own. In this video, filmmaker Justin Brunelle covers the best accessories to pack. Not all of it’s related to photography or video, either. Some of it’s for general safety that you might not even have considered.
