VLOGGER: HOW TO SHOOT AND EDIT FOR YOUTUBE
Having launched YouTube channel I started to pay more attention to it and less to my blog. I also “lost” my photographer, because I temporarily moved to Russia & permanently from Poland. Obviously Marek remained in Poland, but I am sure, with the life that we are leading, we will see each other around the world :)
So, in the previous video post I promised to tell you more about how I create my videos. First things first – let’s talk about the stuff you need to shoot & edit your video. Camera I use is Sony a5000: it’s a mirrorless camera and has a very good image quality and quite a nice sound. As I got a lot of feedback about the sound, I purchased a Sony recorder, but I am still figuring out the way to get closer to perfection in this sense. You will definitely need a tripod in order not to have a shaky video and save the efforts that otherwise you would invest into stabilising your video. This is it for the shooting. I am also thinking to get a proper lighting, but for now I limit myself shooting in the daylight.
As for the editing, you can choose whichever software from a variety of options available on the market. I know that many bloggers use Final Cut Pro or iMovie, but I decided to stick to Adobe products, and chose to edit with Premiere Pro and I quite like it: it has all the necessary effects for both video and sound.
So, this is it, but if you have any questions – let me know in the comments, and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.
