What's going on, guys? Today we're gonna talk about three camera movements that are gonna make even the most basic footage looks cinematic. All you need: your hands...and a camera.
The key to cinematic shots is smooth camera movement. And today, I want to talk about three camera movements in particular that you can use to help step up your videos.
For this video, we wanna adjust our camera settings to shoot at a higher frame rate so that we can shoot in slow motion. This will allow our shots to be a little bit more cinematic, number one, but smooth on our movements. They really even out any wobbles in our shots.
So, if you want to set your camera to 60 frames per second or even 120 or higher, if you have the option, the first move that I want to tell you about really requires putting something in your foreground.
所以將幀率設在每秒 60 幀，或甚至 120 幀以上，如果有這些選項，而我想分享的第一種運鏡技巧就是在前景擺放遮蔽物。
Now, what I mean by this is sliding your camera out from behind something. So, the easiest example is a wall or a doorway. If you slide your camera out from this to reveal your shot, it has a nice cinematic touch, and it really adds value to your shot.
Now, if we do the same sort of camera slide in the middle of nowhere, with nothing in the foreground, there's not any real notion of movement. You can't really see anything happening. Now just toss something in front of it, like a tree or a plant, or even your hand in front of your camera lens, you're giving it some detail and you're actually seeing that movement—works as a fantastic way to establish a scene, work as a transition from scene to scene, or, really, it can be used in a number of ways.
So, guys, give this a try. Put something in your foreground, and see how that motion and that camera movement is gonna add to your shots.
The second camera movement trick that you can use is also a sliding-type shot. But this is gonna work really well when you're shooting some sort of product or food or something that can be placed on a table.
And what this will allow you to do is slide your camera without having to bring around or even purchase a huge camera slider. Those can be a very expensive...and can be huge and bulky to bring around.
What you do for this is place the item you're gonna shoot down on a table, and then grab a napkin or a cloth, or even a T-shirt, and put your camera on top of it, on the table. Now, just pull the fabric or the napkin, and let your camera slide along, showing the item that you're shooting. And it gives that same sort of the effect as if you were using a slider. Looks really fantastic, and doesn't really require much to do.
而你要做的就是將拍攝物放到桌上，然後掏出餐巾或布料，或甚至是 T 恤，接著把相機放到上面、放在桌上。然後，只要拉動布料或餐巾，讓相機滑動過去，讓拍攝物在鏡頭中顯現。效果跟使用相機滑軌一樣好。看起來超讚，也不會很麻煩。
Now, the third trick to add nice cinematic camera movement to your shots is all about holding the camera steady and using your body to create the movement. Now, one way you can do this is sort of just start falling and then catching yourself at the last minute.
And you'll have about two to three solid seconds, especially if the camera footage is slowed down, you'll have about two to three solid seconds of footage where the camera is a nice, subtle move into or away from your object.
And one fun way to do this is start with the final frame of the object that you want to shoot or the person that you want to shoot. Get it in focus, and then pull away or fall back, letting your object fall out of focus. It adds a nice touch because then when you bring it in to edit, you can reverse that footage, having the shot push into focus, into the framing that you really want.
It has such a nice cinematic look, guys; this is such a great way to get some really nice B-roll and really nice touches to the videos that you're working on.
So, guys, these are three tips, and they're really pretty simple, but I wanted to show you as a way to, sort of, put it in your mind. The next time you're out shooting a wedding or a music video, and you need some extra B-roll, think of these three tips as ways to just get something extra when you're out there shooting.
