- 1). Click "Photo Booth" in the Dock of your MacBook Pro to launch Apple's native video-recording application. The FaceTime HD camera automatically turns on, and its indicator LED light glows above the display.
- 2). Click the icon of a movie frame on the bottom left of the Photo Booth window to activate video mode. Click the video camera icon to start shooting your video.
- 3). Turn on the lights if you are shooting your video indoors, to provide sufficient illumination. Dim lighting conditions can result in a video with poor detail.
- 4). Shoot your video in an environment that helps set the tone you want to evoke. For example, if you want to suggest a feeling of opulence and luxury, shoot inside an office building in a towering skyscraper, with a glittering city spread out beyond the large windows.
- 5). Position the MacBook Pro so that the camera points toward an interesting background. For example, shoot your video with a colorful painting on the wall behind the person you record, or have the person sit or stand in front of a bookcase, full of books.
- 6). Look at the Photo Booth video image window to compose your shot. Don't put an individual person in the exact middle of the frame. Arrange it so the person is closer to the left side, for example, and then shoot another individual framed on the right side if you are shooting alternating shots of a dialog.
- 7). Hold the MacBook Pro as steadily as you can while you move through space, such as by walking, having someone push you around in a chair, or having someone drive you in a car while you shoot through the window if you want to shoot some moving shots.
