Read Time: 1 min

Video can take your viewers to the heart of the action and make your audience feel like they're there themselves. It’s easier to record great travel videos than ever before, but few people really know how to capture video beyond hitting the record button.

Your footage should be as steady as possible. If you watch films and television shows, you’ll notice that the camera generally isn’t moving very much, if at all. Instead, professionals find ways to incorporate movement in the shot, for example, cars, and people walking within the frame. This creates energy and interest rather than it being more like a photograph

In this lesson you’ll learn how to use your body and environment when you’re shooting hand held. We’ll look at image stabilisation, when not to use zoom, and how to pan and tilt.
