Timeless holiday moments are special. Don't let an equipment mishap or poor lighting ruin the only opportunity to capture these special times on video to create family-treasured memories.
According to mrEZdigital.com, a Milford-based provider of photo, slide and video transfer and preservation services, by checking equipment and sharpening video recording skills, creating engaging holiday videos that can be enjoyed for years to come will be a snap.
mrEZdigital.com offers a few home video recording tips to ensure that all beautiful holiday experiences will be captured:
1. Don't Run Out of Juice- While preparing for the hustle and bustle of the holiday day season don’t take your video camera for granted. Most video cameras only come with one battery – purchase an additional battery and bring the charger along. Plug in the charger at a destination so there's no limited on how much video one can shoot.
2. Improve Your Memory - Does your camera record on tape, memory cards or internal hard drive? Always have enough tapes and memory cards to get you through the season. For hard drive cameras, be sure to download any existing footage so its is ready to record.
3. Raise the Lights- Videotaping indoors can be challenging due to poor lighting. Too often, backlit shots result in the inability to see faces and expressions. Be sure to record in a well-lit room or buy a battery operated or chargeable light that can attach to your video camera. All the lights in a room should be turned on so all those happy faces are captured as gifts are opened.
4. Sound- Sound is an element of video recording that's often overlooked. Read the tips and instructions in the video recorder's owner manual to ensure that sounds are be captured properly. Consider purchasing a microphone to zero in on specific sounds or voices (actors in a holiday school play for instance).
5. Back up Your Video- Avoid using a computer hard drive as a storage place for your videos. They take up a lot of space and if the computer crashes,everything can be lost. Transfer them to DVD for safe keeping and convenient viewing.
