    Default How do I record myself playing?

    Been watching Barry Starks coaching videos and on multiple occasions he has suggested to record yourself playing as a form of self analysis, but i have no idea how i'd manage to do this in the club where my phone camera will view the entire table. Anyone got any ideas?

    In a club it's pretty difficult if you're trying to record yourself with a phone or an ipad...

    If you have a tripod you can set a digicam up with little issue... I always just use a shelf around chest height that's nearby and stack the ipad against it... It's not the best but it's something.

    The best thing to do is to get someone else to video you while you play. If it's your technique you are analysing, just explain what you want capturing before you start so there is no verbal on the actual video recording. If you have never seen yourself play before you may be in for a shock. I was videoed on a camcorder about 15 years ago by a friend and I could not believe how much my head started to move ON THE BACKSWING! never mind the follow through on some power shots.

    I've managed it, just rested the phone facing slightly down on a pint glass on the shelf above the table, suprisingly effective haha.

    Even without someone recording me I could see flaws haha elbow is way off line when down on a shot, so i'll be working on correcting that.
