Firstly, make preparations

You need to prepare the photography devices such as video camera, digital camera, camera on the computer, or even mobile phone (with camera), etc. Then you can shoot a video with your photography device. During the shooting, you can also make an exposition or make comments if needed.

Link your device to computer with USB cable, and then import the video clips to computer.
