Read Time: 2 min

It’s exciting to travel to a new place, exploring new locations and cultures.  Video is a great way to share these experiences, it’s one of the most powerful mediums for storytelling. Video can take you to the heart of the action and make your audience feel like they're there themselves. It’s easier to record video than ever before, but few people really know how to capture video beyond hitting the record button.

So you have the tools, but do you know what not to do? Learning how to record good video starts with learning about the bad. Here, we take a look at some common mistakes, things like waving your camera around, bad audio and poor lighting.

When you know the common mistakes to avoid, it makes it easier to get things right—particularly when it might be a onetime opportunity.
