Tips for filming your video for the 2020 LPA Fashion Show

  1. Find your best light. Use natural lighting if possible, either by filming outdoors in the late morning or early afternoon or indoors in a room with windows. Make sure that you are facing your light source and that all of the light isn’t behind you.

  2. Use a smartphone camera if possible.
    The video will be much higher quality than if you use a tablet or computer.

  3. Film in horizontal (landscape) mode. 
    Set up or hold the phone horizontally/sideways to record your video.

  4. Set up your camera on a steady surface or hold the camera at the eye level of the model. 

    If you are filming yourself, put your device on a stable surface like a tripod or a shelf at your eye level while you record. Stand far enough away from the camera so that we can see you and any instruments you're using. If someone is filming you, make sure they hold the camera at your eye level so that the focus is on your performance. Keep in mind that we want you to be the main focus of the video, not whatever is behind you. Beware of your stage, or your performance frame.

  5. Don’t use a distracting background. 
    Keep in mind that we want you to be the main focus of the video, not whatever is behind you.

  6. Record extra time at the beginning and end of your video. 

    Once you start recording, count to 5 in your head before you start performing. After you performance, count to 5 in your head again before you stop recording. This will add an extra 10 seconds to your video, and give us time to properly edit this spectacular event.

  7. Practice, practice, practice.
    Practice your performance so that you feel more comfortable and confident when it’s time to record your video. This will also give you a chance to see if you want to change anything in your setup before recording.

  8. Let your personality shine!
    Don’t stress, have fun, and show our community how amazing and artistic you are!
