After known the essential tools and steps to make a Tik Tok video, how do we step forward and make a really GOOD Tik Tok video?
Today we’d like to introduce one of the elements of a good video to give you some suggestions and inspiration.
Composition matters.Although we’d probably not notice it when we are scanning through the video stream on the Tik Tok, in fact, the composition decides a lot about a video. For example, a certain composition can be applied only in certain types of the video. Thus if you are shooting a video, make sure that you choose the right composition. And always remember that the composition you choose should be based on the content you are going to make.
Here are some examples for you.
When you are traveling in nature and you want to shoot the landscape, it’s more suitable to make it a panoramic view. The panoramic view means a technique that captures images with horizontally elongated fields of view. Thus it can show exactly that you are penetrating nature. Moreover, it can illustrate the mixture of the borderline between humankind and other beings, the exchange of energy, and the communication of nature and human beings. These effects are accomplished by the size of the figure and the perspective relationship. But there can’t always be a photographer to shoot for you, and when you are traveling alone or you want to make sure that you control all the production process, you’d better use tools, and the most simple and convenient tool is a tripod. You don’t have to buy a very costing and gaudy one, but there are still some important metrics that we suggest you consider.
The first metric is the material, a strong and sturdy material can ensure the sturdiness of the tripod. When you’ve placed your camera at a satisfying position and you have checked the composition, you surely don’t want it to shake and finally get a video that is not what you wanted. You can check if the tripod has a certificate for its material. For example, a military-grade material. The second metric is the structure, it will be better if the tripod is adjustable by length so that you can get more possible compositions to satisfy more situations and more ideas. You can also know that by checking if it has a telescoping design. From desktops to the ground, from indoors to nature. There should not be any limit.
In other situation where you just want to show your opinion about the social topic, for example, the body shame, LGBT group, or marine protection, then it will be better to shoot in a portrait in order to record every subtle facial expression and thus communicate to your audiences the most vivid emotion and passion, to make your point more convincing. You can also use some unusual angles to show your emotion and give your video some dramatic effect.
In recent days, if you want to sit down and talk about your recent feelings about the quarantine and share your opinion about the COVID, then it’s probably a good way to find a quiet place and put your cell phone on a steady surface. To make sure that your audience can follow your idea and your logic. In this case, make sure you find a suitable angle and make your audience more comfortable.
If you are going to record a shopping haul for your latest clothing, and you want to show the best effect of the clothing in a full-body view, you can put the tripod on the ground and adjust the angle as filming from the bottom. Make sure also the distance between you and the camera is enough to include everything you need. And if you want to make it more convenient, choose a tripod with Bluetooth remote shutter.
