3 Easy CAMERA MOVEMENTS for CINEMATIC Footage | Part 2


How’s it going everyone Kellan Reck here
and today we’re gonna talk about three more camera moves that are gonna make
your footage look cinematic and again for this one all you need are your hands
and a camera okay that’s a lens but let’s just pretend it’s a camera cue the
intro so just a reminder before starting into
this video for most of these camera moves we want to be shooting in slow
motion so set your camera to 60 frames per second or higher so that you can get
a nice smooth slowed down shot the slow-mo shots are gonna really smooth
out any bumpiness because a lot of these are handheld so shooting in slow motion
a higher frame rate it’s gonna make all of these work a lot better so in this
first move the wrap you can use it in a number of different ways and it’s all
about your leg strength than this one believe it or not what you want to do is
grab the camera in your hands and set your legs somewhat spread apart and you
want to focus in on the subject that you’re trying to shoot now you’re gonna
lean from one leg to the next leg keeping the subject in the center of
your frame or wherever in the frame you want it to be and you’re just gonna
smoothly using your core and leg strength turn around the subject that
you’re shooting angling the camera towards that subject and it’s gonna keep
your shots nice and smooth nice and steady it’s gonna give you a nice almost
sliding look with a little bit of curve to it and you can do this with a push or
pull as well if you want to lean forward or lean backwards keeping camera steady
and focused on your subject it’s gonna give you a great look for your shots
great camera movement here this next camera movements really easy and the
best way to do it is to put the camera strap on your camera and wrap it around
your neck and then just hold the camera at about arm’s length best to do it with
a wide lens but you can really mix up your focal lengths here and give it a
different try and all you have to do is just either tilt from down to up or from
up to down and just reveal the scene that you’re looking at now if you’re
using a wide lens for this you get a nice big reveal the camera very smoothly
is moving to show the frame that you’re trying to reveal now the reason you want
the camera strap around your neck is because it just keeps everything a lot
more stable you get an extra point to sort of stabilize not just your hands
but the back of your neck and your body to keep that camera stiff and steady so
that your shot is nice and smooth and if you do this with not so much of a wider
focal length with something a little tighter you can get some very nice
isolated shots featuring the subject that you’re focusing on so if you’re
shooting close-ups of a subject this is a
tool to use the final trick is a little bit more in-depth than the others it is
a long form camera movement so what you do with this is say you have one subject
and you want to cover a lot of different parts of that subject or you have
multiple subjects so you want to cover a bunch of different books in a bookshelf
or focus on something where there’s a lot of different things that you want to
see but you want to keep it to one camera move what you do is have your
camera in slow motion and you start handheld and you focus in on your first
subject that could be again one book in a bookshelf or it could be one part of a
person maybe their hat and then you’re gonna move to something else start on
that one object and then move your camera while you’re still recording
quickly to the next part that you want to focus on so another book in the
bookshelf then a few seconds later move to another book in the bookshelf in the
end you’re gonna have one long shot where it various points are focusing on
one object and then moving your camera along to the next one looks a little bit
weird as is for this trick you want to bring it into your editing software and
use a speed ramp anytime to can remove so that you suddenly end up with a nice
slow-mo isolated shot of the first subject speed ramps really quickly to
the next part of the subject that you’re slowing down on speed ramps to the next
and it can go on for as long as you want it gives you a really cool effect and
even better I love sound effects so you’ve got to throw a little woosh sound
effect on there to make it a heck of a lot more cinematic and really sell that
camera move effect so I hope you guys enjoyed these three
