In the this clinic we leant about shotgun mics they are a different type of microphone it picks up surround sound. When you take of the foam bit it looks like a shotgun. when you are filming you have to put on the foam bit because it blocks out wind and unwanted noise. always put head phones on because you can hear your audio if its playing or not. Also don’t move the shotgun mic when filming audio because you can get the wind in. Try to avoid hard surface because the echo will make the sounds come back at you and stuff up your audio.
