Filming your hunt.

I am planning on filming my son during this up coming archery season and I know very little about video taping. So if any of you have any suggestions or advice. I would love to hear what you have to say and work on getting better. Thank you

Yes - I have a suggestion. I

Yes - I have a suggestion.
I watch a lot of hunting and fishing videos online, and one of the things that makes or breaks it for me is how well the camera operator moves the camera around. Panning the countryside must be done much more slowly than you would do it with your naked eye. Otherwise, it feels as if you are watching scenery go by out the side window of a car. I realize that it can get pretty exciting at times when hunting, but every effort to move the camera slowly from one spot to another must be made to be a good video. I have felt like I was going to fall out of my recliner when some people quickly move the camera from one place to another. If you can get some good editing software, it will really help. That way you can edit out any of those rapid movements that make a video hard to watch.
I would suggest that you go online and watch some for yourself that were done by amateurs to see the difference.
Good Luck - - I look forward to seeing some of your hunts!
