Lighting for video takes some skill. It’s not an easy task. It took me a while to figure out what looks right, what looks natural, and what the heck I actually wanted when I was given a script or wrote my own script with specific settings.
Lighting is key (no pun intended) to having great photos and videos. If you have no light, then all you’re going to see is darkness. The camera doesn't see light like we do. What you may think is too much light might not even be enough to get the look you want in your shot; and the most common thing I hear from people (and sometimes myself) is “I’ll fix it in post.”
I've seen the whipped coffee recipe all over TikTok and Instagram and have even tried it myself. Personally, I think it's too bitter no matter how much sweetener you put in it. So this morning I came up with an idea to make something new with the came concept.
If you're like me, you're out of a job (either permanently or temporarily) and not sure what to do with your "free time." I feel like I'm a high schooler again on spring break that sucks. Can't go anywhere, can't see my friends, or promote my small photography business if I can't photograph people. This is where my creative mind came up with ideas for quarantine hobbies and activities.
When I was in college, and even before that in high school, one of the curious questions I had when filmmaking and taking photos is “When should I hold the camera and when should I use a tripod?”
