Previously everyone was photo and especially selfie crazy but with lower data fees than ever before, everyone is slowly starting to prefer videos. Videos gives a much more accurate idea of the scenery, fun and the vibe of a beach holiday and it is also a great way to really remember everyone that shared in on the fun and to capture exactly how family members and especially children enjoyed the trip. But taking a great holiday video is no simple task, especially at a beach where keeping your recording gear dry and sand free is such a challenge. Here are great tips that will help you take the best beach holiday videos.
Keep your camera close by
Adventure and crazy things happen at the most unexpected times. If you want to be ready for these fun moments then it is important to keep your camera close by at all times and to do frequent video records even if nothing super exciting is happening at that very moment.
Stock up on memory
Don’t let a full memory card stop you from making a good holiday video. Stock up on extra memory cards so you can make as many video recordings as you want and don’t delete anything until it is time to edit the videos.
Capture the location
When you are capturing a beach holiday it is important to also include beautiful scenery of the location. Let your camera slide over the beach, the sea and all of the most beautiful spots and try to include the scenery in your video edits even if you are only including short glimpses between fun sessions.
Show all your friends
Try to include all your friends and family members. It is usually best to try to capture them in action as they are having a blast on the beach or in the sea.
Keep things short and sweet
Long videos are hard to edit. It is much better to take a bunch of short clips and to put them all together for a long but great holiday video.
Capture precious moments
Try to capture precious moments that you actually want to remember. Look for odd scenes like the food you are eating, beautiful things on the beach, and glimpses of performances you watched and try to capture special gestures of your friends like hugs, playing or toying.
Fun is always fun to watch
It is always fun to see someone have a blast and that is why your holiday video and your holiday itself should include as many adventures as possible. Look online for all activities that you can do in that area and make a list of everything you want to enjoy. Most beaches have plenty of activities like kayak rentals, paddle board rentals and even wind surfing lessons that will keep everyone busy and enable you to make a very interesting beach video. Try to capture each adventure you enjoy by asking someone to record you in action and by recording your friends as they paddle on the sea, enjoy a kayak race or take on their first wind surfing lesson.
