As much as you may try your best to capture the moment on video while you’re traveling, often you may not be that happy with the results. The fact of the matter is that it can be difficult to record videos that look good at the spur of the moment, as you won’t have the time to carefully plan them out. That being said, there are several things that you can do that will help.

Be Prepared

While you won’t be able to carefully plan the videos that you shoot while you’re traveling – you can still be prepared. In fact you should make sure that you’re always ready to start recording at the drop of a hat.

The first thing that you should do is make sure that you can grab your camera and start recording quickly. It may help if it is hanging around your neck, or in a camera holder – so you can quickly get hold of it or just need to press a button to start recording.

Although there shouldn’t be much other preparation required, the one recording parameter that you may want to tweak in advance is the frame rate. Because most of the videos that you’re likely to record when traveling will have movement in them, a high frame rate is preferable – so you should aim for 60 frames per second, or at very least ensure it is above 30.

Always Position Yourself Well

As you travel, you should constantly be trying to position yourself in places where you can start recording good videos – if you need to. In particular you should try to make sure you’re not directly facing the light, and yet the scene itself should be brightly lit.

Another factor that you should take into account is the crowd – which is particularly relevant in tourist hotspots. Sometimes taking a position that is slightly away from the crowd can help, or trying to find an angle that does not have that many people in it.

All these measures should help you to record videos that look good during your travels. Ideally you should record as much video footage as possible, and then compile it later using Movavi Video Editor.

Not only can you merge your videos and trim out any unnecessary footage using Movavi Video Editor, but it will also let you improve the video quality and fix common issues such as blurry, pixelated or interlaced video footage. On top of that you can then polish it a bit as well, and apply filters or special effects, put music over a video, or add captions.

Rest assured even if you have no experience editing videos you’ll find it to be a breeze with Movavi Video Editor. Due to its intuitive and user-friendly approach, all that you need to do is spend a few minutes experimenting with its features and you will be able to work out for yourself how they can be applied to your travel videos.
