Photography has never been easier. At no previous point in history has it been so simple to capture an image of the world around us. Mobile phones, tablets, and small inexpensive digital cameras have made it easy to take pictures anywhere at anytime. But does quantity translate to quality? Although it may be more accessible than ever before to take photographs, good ones often come from knowing what makes an image work. All photographers shooting both still and video can benefit from some helpful trade secrets. Each of the following chapters will highlight a tip that can be used to better capture an image from scene to screen. These tips are commonly known as ‘the rules’. Rules, however, in a medium as creative as photography is a loose term that best describes a set of creative tools learned and chosen from when the opportunity arises. This book is to inspire more creative photographs, stimulate experimentation, and deepen your passion for taking great pictures.

Newly updated and revised, How to Shoot Video That Doesn’t Suck is a quick and easy guide that will make your video better instantly—whether you read it cover to cover or just skim a few chapters. It’s about the language of video and how to think like a director, regardless of equipment (amateurs think about the camera, pros think about communication). It’s about the rules developed over a century of movie-making—which work just as well when shooting a two-year-old’s birthday party on your phone. Written by Steve Stockman, the director of the award-winning feature Two Weeks, plus TV shows, music videos, and hundreds of commercials, How to Shoot Video That Doesn’t Suck explains in 74 short, pithy, insightful chapters how to tell a story and entertain your audience. In other words, how to shoot video people will want to watch. Here’s how to think in shots—how to move-point-shoot-stop-repeat, instead of planting yourself in one spot and pressing “Record” for five minutes. Why never to shoot until you see the whites of your subject’s eyes. Why to “zoom” with your feet and not the lens. How to create intrigue on camera. The book covers the basics of video production: framing, lighting, sound (use an external mic), editing, special effects (turn them off!), and gives advice on shooting a variety of specific situations: sporting events, parties and family gatherings, graduations and performances. Plus, how to make instructional and promotional videos, how to make a music video, how to capture stunts, and much more. At the end of every chapter is a suggestion of how to immediately put what you’ve learned into practice, so the next time you’re shooting you’ll have begun to master the skill. Steve’s website (stevestockman.com) provides video examples to illustrate different production ideas, techniques, and situations, and his latest thoughts on all things video.
