Shooting styles and techniques

The same shooting styles used in filmmaking can also be used in video production. There is not a singular type of style that is used for every kind of video content captured. Instead, style changes depending on the type of video being created, and the desired tone and message of the video.

  • Tripods for a stable shots (also called a locked down shot)
  • Hand-held for a more energetic and jittery feel – often used to depict natural movement
  • Non-leveled camera angles see Dutch angle
  • Whip pan and Whip zoom
  • Vertical motion shots using a jib or crane often in the beginning or ends of videos/
  • Steadicam for smooth movement and tracking shots at slower speeds such as moving through rooms or following actors and action.
  • 3-axis stabilized gimbal for smooth motion shots at any speed. The gimbal compensates for the camera operators’ movements much like a steadicam but through electronic motors instead of through inertia. The gimbal allows for operators to move much more freely than a steadicam because of the considerably smaller amount of weight used in a gimbal setup. Gimbals can access many places that would be impossible for a steadicam because of this added portability.
