As a YouTuber, I’m always looking at new ways and new techniques to improve my video quality. I’m very passionate about the content I create, and Peter McKinnon has been a huge influence on my channel. There are a number of reasons as to why he’s become such a massive presence on YouTube in a very short period of time, and a previous article on Fstoppers outlines it more effectively. The most obvious reasons are because of his entertainment value, but more importantly it’s the incredibly useful information he provides to his audience. In his latest video, McKinnon describes and demonstrates three subtle techniques that can give some much needed spice to your videos.
As he mentions in his video, subtlety is key, because anything overdone can start to lose its impact. Adding these techniques sparingly in your videos can help give it an extra dimension. In many cases it’s the little touches that really demonstrate your skill and dedication. I personally enjoyed the quick change technique and, of course, the dolly zoom effect. These are two that I’m definitely going to be adding to my videos.
Did you find his video useful and are there any new techniques you’ve recently come to know of that you’d like to share? I’d love to know.
