Fans love being able to see their favorite teams play live, even when they can’t be there in person. But nobody likes the experience of watching a poorly shot game. Capturing footage that is too far from the action, doesn’t follow the ball, or is zoomed in too close is a surefire way to upset fans and keep them from watching your future streams.
In this post, we discuss the optimum camera angles for every sport.
Volleyball, for the most part, is a single camera job. An elevated sideline view in-line with the net is ideal and captures the action perfectly. Try to place your camera opposite from the referee so that he/she doesn’t block a large part of your footage. That way your audience can also easily see the referee’s calls. If you have little control over which side of the court you film from, be sure that the camera is in a high enough position so that the referee isn’t in the way of the action.
