Creating videos at home part 3: Optimizing your lighting

Updated: Aug 25


5 tips for optimizing lighting

  1. Shoot in a room with natural light if possible. If you have little light from your windows, daylight LED lights are closest to natural daylight.

  2. Light yourself from the front and/or sides.

  3. Prevent light coming from behind you since it will blind the camera and make you appear dark.

  4. Don’t place a bright light in your frame, since it will also make you appear darker.

  5. Make sure to avoid strong shadows.
