Do you ever wish you could go back in time and give worthwhile filmmaking advice to your younger-self?

In this episode, we join DP/Host Valentina Vee as she shares five filmmaking tips that she wish she could have learned earlier on in her career as a budding cinematographer. These pieces of advice act as a foundation for any beginning creative who’s looking to take the next phase in their journey and step up their game. Throughout the video, Vee speaks on the value of framing for wider shots, how one should consider lighting the environment rather than just the subject, incorporating motivated camera movement, and much more!

Aputure was founded in 2005 by a team of inspired photographers and filmmakers who wanted to create high-quality content, but struggled with steep cost of equipment needed to do so. Determined to create professional-grade equipment at an affordable price, they started Aputure: the first company to provide affordable camera accessories with the quality and functions needed to fully realize any creative vision.

As a part of the creative community, Aputure continues to develop for the ever-expanding needs of budding artists. Each member of our team has felt the burning desire to bring a creative vision to life at all costs. We're here to keep that fire alive.
