Ever wonder why your video doesn’t look like other peoples video? Believe it or not, it could be your camera settings. Most people are afraid to shoot photography or video in “Manual Mode”. This creates a sense of panic in people who don’t understand how the trifecta of ISO/ASA, Aperture & Shutter Speed all work together. In the video world, we have a 4th dimension which is “Frame Rate”. Frame rate is different than shutter speed in that shutter speed is the time with which the shutter is open and frame rate is speed at which the video frames are created. As the video above will explain, with the invention of movies, a need for audio became evident. 24 frames per second became the standard because it was the minimum needed for correct audio. It also became the maximum simply because film was expensive and they didn’t want to use any more film than was absolutely necessary. Watch the video above to learn how to improve your videos by understanding the way shutter speed and frame rate interact with each other.
