    Hi everyone! I’m new to creating and editing stock videos and I’m looking for some advice. Can anyone recommend simple methods for improving stock video footage for beginners? Also, any suggestions on which service is best for beginners?

    Welcome to the world of stock videography! It’s an exciting field, and there are several ways you can enhance your footage. Use a tripod or a gimbal to stabilize your shots. Smooth, steady footage is much more appealing to potential buyers. Pay attention to your framing and composition. Follow the rule of thirds and avoid distracting elements in the background. While some editing is good, avoid overdoing it. Keep things natural and make subtle adjustments to color and contrast. As for services, popular platforms for selling stock footage include Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, and depositphotos.com. These platforms usually have user-friendly interfaces and guidelines for beginners.

    Hi there. When you upload your footage to stock platforms, spend time on keywording. This helps your videos get discovered by potential buyers. Think about what terms someone might use to search for your content. Keep an eye on current trends in stock videography. This doesn’t mean you have to follow every trend, but being aware of what’s popular can give you ideas and insights.
