How to Film Yourself with a DSLR!

DSLR (and Mirrorless) cameras are incredibly powerful tools for video creation. As with any camera though, if you’re filming yourself and don’t have others handy to help focus and frame your camera – it can get difficult to lock down the right settings and positioning before you start, as well as monitoring throughout your shoot to make sure everything remains fine!

Whether you’re into DSLR selfies, starting a VLOG with DSLR, or just looking for tips to film yourself using a DSLR in your studio – this video will run through a range of DSLR video setup options to help you configure and monitor your video focus, framing and settings by yourself from in front of the camera!

No matter what features your camera does (or doesn’t!) have, you’ll learn a range of options you can use to focus a DSLR on yourself from in front of the lens!
