This article is meant for people who are interested in taking their YouTube, Instagram, or any other social media account to the next level. The following are 10 tips that will help you create amazing BTS videos that will draw in viewers and keep them coming back for more!

Number 1: 

I like to use Shutter Priority (Tv or S) when I need the camera and myself in sync. For most photos, this mode will help me control my shutter speed while still having a fast enough exposure for other settings such as ISO or Aperture size/ rate of focus detection which helps with motion sickness from moving subjects.

For some behind-the-scenes pictures using “Shutter” priority is best during situations where you want both yourself and your equipment stabilized at once – especially if there’s going to be movement because then automatically compensated by adjusting things accordingly based on how high upwind.

Number 2: 

If you’re looking for a lens that will offer the best variety in your shots, then I would recommend using an 18-55mm. It covers most needs without being too specific or limiting to any one type of photography background and is perfect when confined spaces are involved!

I have so many favorite lenses but if there’s anything on my list it might be hard not having them all because this focal range offers just about everything photographers could ask from their camera: wide angle landscapes; macro images up close with great detail (you don’t need much light); coverage over long distances such as flower.

Number 3:

If you want to take really great BTS photos, then get into the habit of looking for candid reactions. There are many ways that an actor or model might react while on set and it can be fun trying to guess what they’re feeling at any given moment! Most importantly though: don’t forget about capturing other emotions too – things like intense concentration from someone who is deeply engaged in their work; lost thoughts when one’s mind has gone blank because there was no script handed out yet? These all make amazing images worth remembering so pay attention next time around.

Number 4:

You should always pay attention to your surroundings when working on a set. If you get tunnel vision during a certain shot, it might be difficult for others and even yourself in the background of scenes because they won’t see what’s happening around them which can lead to interesting shots. Avoiding getting caught between other actors/actresses by being aware will help with finding those unique perspectives as well as avoiding accidents from happening such as blocking someone else or ending up behind them while trying takeBTS photo!

I mean think about how many times we’ve walked right by an interesting angle without even noticing. That definitely won’t happen when being attentive so keep watching where everyone goes.

Number 5:

To seem invisible is simple. All you have to do, though it sounds hard at first, with practice becomes easier every day and before long will feel natural for photographers like yourself that are trying their best not to be seen or heard when taking pictures! You can anticipate where people might move next by looking through the viewfinder of your camera while they make adjustments which makes getting out of someone elses way much easier – especially if it’s time to actually start shooting ! This helps avoid any frustration caused from making things harder on other crew members during shoots.

Number 6:

No matter what you’re shooting behind the scenes photos for, your job will be a lot easier if you understand the process. For example, it is very useful to know how far along in each stage of production they are and whether or not it’s time for photography yet!

You may think that after spending more time on set all these things would start making sense but don’t worry-it takes practice before becoming fluent with this jargon. However once mastered no one can really take away from understanding every detail about different types of shots possible at certain points during filming/ photo shoots ́and I promise any beginner could learn something new everyday just by listening carefully when someone else speaks about their experiences.

Number 7:

Since you never know when the perfect moment will arise, make sure to use a continuous shutter. That way, you can get many different frames of the same photo and guarantee yourself an amazing one!

A great example would be capturing someone mid-blink in order for it not being usable because if they were captured on film with only 1 second before their eyes Closed or opened depending on how long it takes them which makes this more difficult then trying again later since people usually react Physically over mentally at times like these but by having multiple pictures taken throughout its easier than just getting lucky sometimes plus candid reactions may come up anywhere while driving.

Using a continuous shutter is the best way to make sure your photos are in focus, whether you’re photographing behind scenes or not. I recommend trying it for yourself!

Number 8:

Continuous autofocus allows you to shoot without having your lens constantly changing. This is important for behind the scenes photography, because it’s a race against time – if we can’t get shots quickly enough then they’ll be forgotten forever!

The single-shot mode might have been great in theory but when I tried using it while trying not miss any opportunities (and usually don’t) its drawback was clear: after focusing on something stationary like myself or an object sitting still near my camera [i]single shot auto focus wouldn’t adjust itself as i moved around; instead one had take another half press of shutter button and hope nothing got missed out between those two presses.

With continuous autofocus, your camera will track the movements of an object and adjust its focus accordingly. Rather than constantly half-pressing shutter release to reset it back into manual mode just so you can take photos with perfect accuracy every single time–you only need do this once when using AI Servo or Active Focus Control on Canon cameras; while AF c is called for in Nikon/Sony models.

Number 9: 

When there’s a lot to shoot in a day, productions can move rapidly and unpredictably. Whether it’s resetting stands and equipment on set or moving locations entirely- you never know where things are headed! That’s why you must be able to respond quickly with all your gear at hand so that no matter what happens we’re ready for anything without having our workflow interrupted by kit changes, extended hours spent away from home/office etcetera.

It is the easiest solution if everyone brings just one camera bag while shooting: when necessary take out only needed items (and store elsewhere). This way I’m low profile walking around but still have everything available if something goes wrong.

Number 10:

When you’re not in control of a shoot, it can be hard to get the perfection that we all wish for. As photographers ourselves and knowing how much harder behind-the-scenes photography is than on set shooting with actors or models who already have their own vision about what they should look like when acting out certain scenes; however I found through experience just watching other people take photos: there’s always creativity somewhere if only one looks creatively enough!

If you want to take better photos, then these are 10 tips for behind the scenes photography. It’s always a lot of fun and offers something new with different locations crew members models actors – so get snapping! With these tricks up your sleeve it won’t be long before people can’t believe their eyes when they see how awesomely candid your images are.
