After a summer of not doing much but making lattes for Hollywood folks and making a short film that I ended up not finishing, I feel behind as a student filmmaker.
Are there any simple but effective practices that a person with a camera can get in the habit of to improve their skills? Skills such as: framing, camera movement, lighting, and composition.
An example I heard of was to film ten second clips displaying dramatic light changes ie: striking a match in a dark room.
I hope many can chime in on this!
