One of the first questions parents, players and coaches ask me before sending in their video for analysis is, “How should I shoot the video?” It’s true that sending in quality video goes a long way when asking someone to review it. So, if you are going to take advantage of my free video analysis offer, check out the 7 tips for shooting video below:
1. Shoot the video with your phone or tablet.
2. Shoot the video facing the side of the pitcher or directly in front of the pitcher (or both!).
3. Make sure the pitcher’s entire body is in the shot (from head to toe).
4. Make sure the video captures the entire delivery and don’t stop the video until the pitcher has completely followed through.
5. Make sure the lighting is adequate.
6. Clearly say the pitchers name at the beginning (or the end) of the video.
7. Send full-speed video (not slo-mo).
