Tuts+ Tips for Event Video
- Avoid autofocus when the light is low, or it will pulse in and out to try and find your subject every time they move. Learn how to manually focus effectively.
- Don’t wing it. Sometimes you won’t have a choice, but control the things you can, like visiting the venue prior to the event, getting a running order and making sure you leave plenty of time to get to where you need to be.
- When it comes to editing, how you put together your piece will determine how it’s received. Even if you’re shooting a (dull) conference, tell a story and try to engage the audience.
- Take spares of everything it’s possible to have spares for! At an event you generally only get one shot at getting it right, so give yourself the best chance of doing a great job.
- If your event has sound, then try and tap into the PA. If this isn’t possible, make sure you invest in a good microphone setup and put it as close to the audio source as possible.
