As one of the jobs that are starting to spread all over the digital era like now, this one job is not as easy as you imagine. Videographer in Singapore is growing due to several factors. For example, the increase in digital cameras, the expansion of the internet, to the increasingly rapid technological advances. So, becoming a reliable videographer requires a long process because this profession is always evolving. What are some common mistakes that a novice videographer should avoid? See our explanation below. 

  1. Poor lighting 

The most common mistake beginner videographers still make is poor lighting. This one thing can be circumvented during the editing process. However, some conditions make it impossible to edit the bad lighting parts. If you’re making videos as a hobby, poor lighting is tolerable. When you have made a professional video, then you should avoid this one mistake. Lighting when making videos is a very important element. If you are outdoors, you can use natural lighting, for example from sunlight. When it is night or taking pictures indoors, lighting must be available for lighting. Besides, when making a video there are several questions to think about. For example, the question of whether the object is visible or whether the contrast between the background and the object is sufficient. 

  1. Less clear audio 

Audio is also the most important part of a video. If the audio is not clear and bad of course it will reduce the quality of the video. Audio errors are one of the most difficult aspects to fix during the post-production process. So, always make sure the audio quality while taking the video. In most cases, the built-in microphone on the camera is not able to fully render the audio quality up to standard. So, you still need an external microphone such as a clip-on microphone or a voice recorder when taking pictures. Several types of microphones can be used to record good audio depending on where they are used. For example, a lavalier (clip-on) microphone is best suited for recording audio in noisy areas. Meanwhile, the right microphone to use in a quiet area can use a shotgun microphone. Then, for voice-over, you can use a cardioid microphone. In addition, a cardioid microphone can also be used to conduct interviews that require a microphone to be practical to carry everywhere.
