Whether you're adding videos to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr or your own website, just a little thought and experimentation with the lighting can make all the difference. I learned this from my husband Greg, a theatre director, who makes his own lightboxes from scary-looking instruments. I've also watched Todd O'Neill and Alan Weinkrantz take a few seconds to light even a quickie social media video well.
Vlogging can be done with inexpensive equipment, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't put forth a little effort to make the video attractive. This segment uses three light sources and a diffuser, and we get to see the immediate impact for the better. Via Cameron Moll's excellent blog.
