Chuffed to see the topic has been well received and indeed that Yorkshire has helped out by setting up that "why do you" thread to hopefully keep this one focussed on "best practise".
Having a tripod is almost as important as having a camera in my book, if you're going to get footage that is properly ummm... inspiring! But noting already that some feel a bit awkward lugging gear into a punt, what things have helped people in getting decent hand held vids?
Firstly, for me, I think you have to accept that this is the most intrusive way of filming as it really does detract from the punt in my experience - you have to be convinced that the lasting record is worth quite a reduction in unbounded excitement at the time itself.
You need to really focus on keeping your hand still and resisting the very strong temptation to move too quickly to different angles. I have lots of footage where on viewing I am frustrated that I haven't stayed long enough in one place, on the close up I'm capturing.
If you haven't got a forward facing view finder, or a front cam if using a phone, you need to practise spatial awareness. Because when you're filming a bj from arms length, it really is much better when you can watch your cock being licked and sliding in and out of the lady's mouth, rather than being stuck with 30 seconds of the back of her head bobbing around!
Watch POV porn and pay close attention to what shots you like most, practise them - and stick to them in the punt. Don't let yourself/the WG be distracted/distract you from what you're after getting. Too often I've been overtaken by the excitement of the punt and been diverted from my plan, with what seemed like good ideas at that moment. The results usually disappoint.
And the hardest discipline I've found is the POV facial. I have loads of half arsed handheld cumshot footage because the camera is all over the place. If POV cumming footage is your goal and you can't afford repeat visits to get it right, my tip would be to watch your ejaculation though the viewfinder, as that helps keep the cam still(ish) and pointing in the the right direction!
Here's hoping this thread builds into the comprehensive resource it's starting to become!
