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

    Hi dear! I’m using the Sony A5000 too and am thinking of starting vlogging. Just want to get some tips from you about using the sony a5000. What file format do you use to record your videos? mp4? and any neat tips to share?
    Thanks!
