and Videos Help You Improve Your Aerial Dance
Taking photos of your acts will not
only create memories for you, but you can also analyze photos
and videos to help you improve your technique. It is one
thing to be told your toes are not pointed or that your
arms flail out of control during a drop, but to see it with
your own eyes makes an impact.
Do not waste the chance to self-critique yourself.
Angle the camera so that you have as plain of a background
as possible, and also try to play with video editing software
that is now available on most computers. Apple computers
have iMovie, which is a pretty easy way to create short
videos of your work as a highlight reel.
If you decide to become a professional, having a lot of
footage to draw from when you create a portfolio reel will
be helpful. For this reason, make your videos with high
quality, including lighting and editing, so that eve your
"beginner" footage can later be spliced into a
portfolio video. Even if you don't use your beginner footage
to show anything advanced because you were still learning
at the time, if you are wearing a great costume or have
on interesting makeup, that is still footage you can use.
Do not get expensive equipment; almost any digital camera
today has video features. Have fun!
