Lighting can make a big difference in your videos. We show you in this quick Thursday Tips video.
Lighting and audio are two of the most important parts of video production. And today, we’re tackling lighting. We want you to see the difference when you set up lights. So right now, I have lighting all around me– three different lights. Watch this. And now I don’t have any lights on me, and you can see how dark I am. We’re going to show you the difference one by one. Watch this.
Now we’ve turned on the backlight. It’s over here to my right. And it helps separate me from the background. Now we’re going to add another light. Now we’ve added a second light, which helps fill the room. And now we’ve added the front light, which lights my face.
Now lighting is good, but you have to know where to put it and how bright or dark to make it. So I want to show you one other difference. Right now, all the colors and the brightness is right where we want them to be. But watch what happens when we make it too bright. And now I’m blown out. And the opposite can happen too. Now the light is not bright enough, and I’m not lit properly. So lighting is great to have, but you have to know where to put it and how to use it.
