PostSubject: HOW TO REQUEST: Filming   Sat Jul 02, 2016 6:17 pm

I grow up film and making skate videos with my friends. It was easy but I can not figure out how to film freaking fingerboarding when ever I try it just looks so crappy and stupid. If someone could make a how to(Might be one I only looked through a couple pages) it would help me out a lot. I notice it seems like a lot of people film with one hand and skate with the other. I am having a hard time doing that and keeping the board in frame.(I am using my cell phone so that probably does not help.

Just keep experimenting dude! Its all about what looks good to you personally! Also buying a fisheye for your phone might help with finding better angles and keeping your board in the shot.

Edit: As mike said though filming can get pretty annoying pretty fast! Just have fun with it man its just fingerboardz

It really is one of those things you learn in time...when I look back at my early vids I laugh at how bad the angles are...

The most importing thing when it comes to filming is (usually) lighting...I would recommend getting a 300w-500w worklight (like this: https://www.bunnings.com.au/arlec-500w-portable-halogen-worklight_p7070598). They are cheap and get the job done...though be warned...they get VERY hot!

2nd most important thing (in my opinion) is angles...I was filming for a long time without using a tripod and it is a LOT harder to get good angles this was...flexible tripods such like Joby Gorillapod
are FANTASTIC...and I would HIGHLY advise investing in one (or a cheap knock-off equivalent).

Frame-rate can also play a very important roll when it comes to filming fingerboarding...so a 'decent' video camera is also needed if you want to avoid ''blurring''...though good lighting will also reduce ''blurring''.

Other than that, all you can really do is practice...either that or take a photography class or something...

Hope that helps out a bit anyways.

a gopro is the easiest to film with without a doubt, especially the one-hand thing in my opinion
