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 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!
Don't assume that when fall comes, or hunting season, that the big bucks, and big bulls leave. Whitetail deer bucks especially, simply hide. And they hide very well. Mule deer bucks may leave a little. Bull elk may leave, but don't assume they do. Don't assume any of them do. I mean - where would they leave to? (Just another place where, for the most part, they would be hunted.) These big animals have the ability to hide in very small, very obscure places. So, embrace the fact (...
