It’s OK to be a Creep!
Although you may feel intrusive or like a bit of a creep, it’s ok! In a filming scenario, it’s your JOB to film people interacting with one another and having some of their most personal and intimate moments. Being too shy can often hinder your project as you may miss out on some amazing footage. And, don’t worry, once people notice the camera and tripod, you’ll soon fade into the background anyway!
Hint: When filming an event, such as a wedding, you can ask the couple if the staff (servers, ushers, etc) will be wearing a specific color. Then, outift yourself in that same color so that the guests know you are there to work.
