    Best angle to film from?

    I just got a mini tripod and I'm planning to film and post a clip of myself hitting some forehand shots. I'm looking for feedback on my technique, so as a right handed player what angle should I film from? At my back or should i be on the opposite side of the table from the camera with it facing my front? Also, should it be to the left or right of my body? Does it even matter?

    Later on i might play around with 60fps recordings and maybe slow motion recordings.

    When practicing forehands I film with the camera behind and to the right of me ( I’m right handed)
    This way you can see your wing back and if you are keeping your bat high

    Hmm. Okay. I was initially thinking of being on the opposite side of the table from the camera. (Towards my front).

    I see what you are saying. I am trying to break a habit of swinging too far back (and sideways).

    60fps is a must for normal speed. If a ball is traveling 10m/s, that is 10mm/ms. At 30 FPS there are 33.3 ms per frame so the ball travels 333 mm per frame. Now you must know the shutter speed. If the shutter is open for half the frame the ball will look like a 166mm long blur.
