When you hand hold a camera, it is impossible to hold it still.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE THE CAMERA MOVEMENT MAKE SENSE, put the movement to music.
Camera Setup - plug a cd or cassette player into the Camera microphone input - plug your head phones into the camera. You may use any shoulder or carrying support -"You can build"- !
You should use the camera with 'BOTH' the eyepiece, and the fold out window (if available),
Choose music you "
OK 'I KNOW THE WORD CHOICE CAN THROW YOU OFF'
collections - BUTTONS TO BOWS, FROM BULLETS TO BATONS OR ROCKING HORSES TO STAMPS. Various buildings or a collection of them. Moving portrates of 20 or 30 people, (short quick)
this will help you - almost all musical scores have stops(movement to a stop)
How many times can you tell the same story in the same piece of music. use flashes - freeze frames of all stops - the best picks of the rest of the frames -
when you are ready to stop videoing one item - back the music up and give your self a place to edit in the next scene in the musical score.
You really are getting a break here, you dont really have to plan the shots - because you are going to let the music determine the way you show stuff -
Try to look at as many things as possible as possible and dance from one view to another by moving and dancing to the feeling you have.
