YouTube Video Production Tip #1: The Camera
The camera is very important when you are shooting a video. Using a digital camera is going to be the best choice because it is the latest, greatist and very common to find among a circle of friends.
YouTube Video Production Tip #2: Lighting
Lighting is fairly simple, you can spend around $100 dollars and you can get a basic lighting kit, which will come in handy, these usually consist of umbrellas and stands for relatively little money. If money is even tighter then that, using windows and even household light bulbs can work if you take the time to make sure it looks good.
YouTube Video Production Tip #3: Editing
This is where money could be needed. If you have an Apple computer they are now equipped with iMovie, where you can take your raw footage and edit it right on your desktop, which is great and works nicely. If you have some extra money I would suggest investing in a program, FinalCut is great when you really learn how to use it. Editing is where you are going to be able to take your vision and put it into action.
