Steve Stockman has a great book that tells you How to Shoot Video that Doesn’t Suck. It’s highly recommended reading, and will make your video shooting and editing a lot better. I hope to work on a more in-depth review in the future. If you’re a bit impatient like me, and just want some quick tips, his short video below offers some great advice for making your videos better. Steve doesn’t focus much on equipment, so it doesn’t matter if you are using a dSLR or an iPhone to shoot your video. His tips are valuable for novice and intermediate videographers, regardless of the equipment or types of videos they make.
