"The way I light is I like people going in and out of light. If I’m shooting people and there’s not enough light, I’ll bounce it. I’ll light them in a portrait kind of style as if I was shooting an interview in film, which I’ve shot a lot of interviews in my day.

Q&A with Steadicam Operator Jerry Franck
"There are two main operating techniques: high and low mode. As most steadicam operators, I am not a fan of low mode since it puts the operator in a very awkward position because the majority of the weight is then lower and further away from your body.
