How To Get Comfortable on Camera, Faster!

Getting comfortable on camera. It’s a topic we get asked about all the time at Primal Video, and when on a shoot with clients. It’s also something I’ve struggled with personally – and you never quite realize this yourself until YOU’RE the one in front of the camera. Here are our tips!

How To Get Comfortable on Camera, Faster!

For those of you that’ve been watching my videos since we setup the channel, you’ll see it definitely takes time. I’m by no means fantastic today, but I cringe when I look back at some of those original videos. I looked like a deer in the headlights! (I don’t think I blinked once in the first 10 videos…) If you haven’t seen them, check out the channel – they’re still there as a painful reminder 😉

It’s not all doom and gloom. As with everything, time is the BEST way to get better – BUT there are a few simple practices you should implement to accelerate the process, and get some quick wins along the way.

These are by no means new! There’s nothing groundbreaking here. But this is what I found works the best for my clients over the years, and myself included now that I’m in front of the camera.

There is NO silver bullet there, you’ll still need to practice. It takes time. But these simple tools will DEFINITELY help to accelerate your results!
