“A good trick I learnt early on is not to immediately look at playback because once you know the shot, you can see when the camera is on you. It’s best to stay ‘in it’ all the time, and just if it’s on you, it’s on you, and if it’s not, it’s not. It’s the easiest way.” Aidan Turner.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
