don't forget framing of the shot.
i can't count the times a video or photo has been ruined when the proper framing wasn't used or even understood.
the focal point will generally be in line with the separation of the upper horizontal and vertical thirds of the frame, not the center.
imagine your frame as a tic tac toe board. line up your shot approximately where the lines indicated above, intersect over the most prominent feature.
in other words, a bit off center to the upper right or left.
