One of the best things about videos is that it really pushes you outside of your COMFORT ZONE.
By saying that we mean that you need to show your face!😏 But that's not enough... make the most of it! One of the things to consider is the angle you should hold/place your phone when filming.
For social media, EYE LEVEL👀 camera position is the most powerful one because viewers feel really engaged with you (just hold the phone or use a tripod when filming). It definitely gives a good feeling in the video!
Make sure you look DIRECTLY into the lens and leave some extra space above your head in case you have to crop or adjust the video!
EYE LEVEL POSITION- presents visual information through a familiar viewpoint. Watch into the lens directly when filming.
SHOTS FROM BELOW- too many ceilings, feeling like the authority of power, instead of looking into clients as your peers.
SHOTS FROM ABOVE- the opposite. It makes you look weaker and less powerful.
BONUS TIP: Posture matters! If you laid back- it might seem you don't care, if you stand- it's easier to stay straight, show gestures etc.
