Starting to make videos can be super overwhelming at first. There is so much information out there on all of the different aspects of video-making. From sound and lighting, to the quality of your camera and computer. You’ll need good editing software as well as a computer that can handle that software.

Here are tips on how to get the best sound quality for your videos:

  • You will definitely want to invest in a microphone.
  • Add a pop filter.
  • Talk clearly and as close to the microphone as possible.

Now you’ll need great lighting for your video:

  • Use three-point lighting, lights coming from 3 different directions.
  • Lights that are 3 feet away are the most flattering.

The most important will be the camera you use:

  • Make sure you have a high quality camera.
  • Try using a tripod to steady the camera.
  • Have extra batteries and memory cards with you while shooting.
