2.4 Shooting a Subject Walking

It's nearly impossible to emulate smooth, Steadicam-like footage when you're shooting handheld and walking at the same time, but having a subject in your frame actually helps to hide some of the jitter. Start with your widest lens, or zoom out to the widest setting on your current lens, keep the camera firm and close to you, and take small steps as you walk. Capture a variety of shots that you can edit together, including in front, behind, and to the side of them, as well as cutaways such as their feet walking.
