Tip of The Week

Here's another video shooting tip - remember to capture background sounds. When filming, try to record video that includes the background sounds characteristic of the environment, such as the waves at the beach, the crowd at a baseball game, or kids playing in the park. You can use any video editing program to creatively add this background audio throughout your movie. For example, you could use the wave sounds as background audio for digital pictures you took at the beach.
