3 Basics to a Great Video: Look Great!
looking great on camera...
First and foremost means great lighting. You don't want viewers to scroll right past your vid because they can't see your beautiful smiling face.
1. Natural lighting is #1. Always find the brightest and lightest spot in your space to film. Position yourself with the light facing you.
2. A portable ring light is a great option if you have plenty of natural light, but just need a fill light to brighten your face. Clips right on your smartphone to make for an easy setup and tear down. ;)
3. A full-size ring light is your best bet if (like me) you don't have a lot of light and need to use studio lighting. A kit comes with a light stand, the tube light, diffusers and a mount for either your smartphone or DSLR camera. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
