That is why the attention of both a beginner and an advanced videographer should be paid to the skills first.

Becoming the best videographer demands a lot of patience and time, though the result is worth it. If you work in the field of wedding photography/cinematography you should know, that tight schedule, customer’s desires and a creative compound grab your mind and leave no space for the ideas how to develop a proficiency in your video jobs. Nevertheless, the following pieces of advice may appear plain, but they can be your game changer.

Learn as much as you can.

Everyone knows this life rule but you can barely find a person who treats it seriously. One of the reasons is the false complexity of the process as you might look at it from a completely wrong way. Learning is not about reading books and studying tons of material or technical stuff. It’s about the way you think. For instance, going to the cinema and watching a film pay attention to the camera angle the director uses to receive an emotion or the choice of transactions between the shots and then come up with the ways how you can apply it on your own. Such features can be found everywhere and over time you will see that analyzing has become your professional booster, providing more career opportunities in photography and videography.

Diversity is the key.

If you are shooting a wedding there should be a prepared plan for the whole process to keep it going easier. But have you ever thought about plan B or C? Having a couple of scenarios in your head helps a lot in becoming the best videographer as you always have some ideas to stay interesting. Trends are made by people who are not afraid to mix things up and show the same items in a unique way.

Come up with another idea.

You should stay on the top to build a successful career in the field of wedding photography cinematography, applying all your efforts into the workflow. It is much easier to achieve if you combine the first two pieces of advice making them a kind of an exercise in your everyday life. While seeing something interesting, try to imagine how you would like to depict it. Then imagine how your favorite director would do it. After you have a sketch in your head think over the possible ways to present the same picture in the same setting but from a different angle. It is obvious that in following these steps gear and even the best video editing software do not matter but growing experience does a lot.

Collaborate.  

Sometimes a customer wants you to get a kind of a story from this marvelous event called wedding. Working alone has many advantages, but disadvantages are here too. For instance, you can collaborate with other videographers of the same level or higher than yours in the country or city where you live in. To do that you can use mobile app Zooma for photographers and videographers, which is designed exactly for this. On a freelance basis you can chat, discuss projects, create a portfolio or study other portfolios for learning, create your camera crew and look for jobs as a photographer or videographer. Besides, it allows you to make a team and the next time a client wants something special you can convince him of depicting every single emotion and smile.
