Wondering if you’re making some über rookie mistakes when it comes to using your camera in your DIY videos?

Well here is the low down.

I’ve been paying close attention to what my fellow entrepreneurs have been putting out there, and first and foremost, I have to say “yay you” for diving into this arena. Video can reach people in a way that the written word simply doesn’t.

So good for you for getting started on this adventure.

Now, one of the reasons that I started this biz is I just couldn’t sit back any longer and watch extraordinary people making video mistakes that could be fixed.

You deserve to put your best foot forward in all aspects of your biz.

So these “camera sins” are things that you may be doing, but they all have a super easy fix. (wooo!)

Check out the video below to find out the top 5 camera sins that fab-preneurs make as they dive into the land of video, and to up your camera-bility!

Oh and be sure to leave a comment below to tell me which of the sins you’ve been guilty of. Buwahahaha.

I’m stoked to hear what your biggest takeaways are.

And if you’re ready to rock it out with a tripod, here are my suggestions:

Forget trying to steady your camera on a stack of books. I highly recommend that you pick up a simple tripod to give your videos that professional touch.
I personally use a pro tripod because it is extra sturdy and gives me peace of mind that my camera won’t get easily knocked over. If you want to go this route, I suggest this Manfrotto 2-Way Kit.

A mid-range tripod that I highly recommend is this bad boy by Magnus.

If you’re looking for a beginner tripod that’s under $100, I suggest picking up this tripod by Dolica.

If you’re using an smartphone, you’ll need an additional attachment to add to your tripod, so that the phone will fit on top.
I recommend the Joby GripTight Smartphone Tripod Mount (XL) with Cleaning Kit.

And as always…
