Want to add some smooth camera movement to shots where you are on camera but don’t have a camera operator? Yoda Yeo on Youtube came up with simply brilliant solution.
Brilliant! Especially in it’s simplicity.
I was thinking about how to hold the camera in place while you get yourself in place for an on camera shot. Just take another piece of fishing line and some tape, set the shot up, “lock” it in place. sit down, settle yourself, and then release the line. No rushing around to hit your mark and tripping etc and having to re-shoot. 😉
I imagine this will take some doing, and require different lengths of line to stop the camera at different tripod heights. But it seems like a fantastic DIY solution. Give it a try and report back how it works for you.
