Take your video camera out and practice. Take as numerous shots as you like, assess them while still out, and see how you can easily improve them while you still have the scene in front of you.

Spot imaginary lines on your LCD display, two vertically, two horizontally so you have a grid in place. Now, when you take your shot, put the subject so that it is being dissected by one of these lines. The result must be that your topic is not focused, however, to one side of the image. This quickly produces a more intriguing shot than if you took your subject dead center.

Before you take a shot of something that is high speed, focus on the area you anticipate the subject to be, and press and hold half-way down your shutter. This will lock the focus at that point. Now wait until your subject comes into view and then catches the image. You can easily also pan with the subject if it is moving at really high speed.

By setting the focus earlier, implies the video camera is already set to take the picture.
