Hi Cameron,

I would say your first step to improvement would be to get a tripod, any cheap tripod will do to start.

What are you currently editing on?

What do you feel you want to do yourself, for your next video?

**EDIT** Here is a video about general camera angles - http://www.filmmakerforum.org/production/1347-filmmaking-shots-angles-new-filmmakers.html

Thanks to Jsthompson79 (http://www.filmmakerforum.org/members/jsthompson79.html) for reminding me

Just need to know a few things my friend.

What kind of camera do you own?
What are you editing with?
Other equipment you use?
What are your goals when it comes down to your videos?

Basically from what I saw, as Nick said, the first thing you need to get is a decent tripod. Nothing too fancy to start, but you 100% need one. It will really help steady those shots!

Basically the rest of my help is going to come after you answer those questions for me!

Since others have already touched on the tripod and other things I will touch on something different. One way to improve is by fixing the exposure. Several of your shots were blown out by the sunlight coming into the camera. Another thing is watch your headroom in some shots you have too much and others you have too little. It doesn't really apply too much to solo shots but you should probably research the rule of thirds for future shorts. Not sure where you are on camera angles and shots as far as knowledge so I would recommend looking up the different types of shots. Nick posted a nice Youtube video the other day with them in it.
