NUMBER OF THE MONTH

 

OVERCOMING CAMERA-SHYNESS

If you’re going to be making one video this year, it’ll be that ‘end of year wishes’ one, won’t it? Since it’s the season to be video-making, we talk about how to give your best if you’re camera-shy.

  • stick to your passion
  • talk about what you know
  • record the audio from close by
  • pretend you’re talking to a real person sitting behind the camera.
  • stay still and stay relevant
  • tell a story
  • be confident: you are the expert.
  • practice before you hit ‘record’
  • have FUN!
