I'm super excited to share this new video with you. I've finally come through on my purchase to get a new DSLR camera and lighting set-up. It was a birthday gift to myself and totally worth it. This is my first vid/post using my new filming set-up. In this video I also show you my evolution of cameras and lighting set up on the nearly 5 years that I've been on YouTube. Hopefully this helps my fellow vloggers out there. Check it out!
Check out the video!
Camera: I'm now using the Nikon D7000 DSLR. I purchased the camera body that came with the 18-105mm Kit Lens. The lenses can actually be more expensive than the camera itself. Another good lens to purchase is the 55mm which is great for product photography.
Lighting from the front: I am actually using a total of four lights. Two of these are umbrella lights that are set up in front of me from the left on right. They are on tripods and positioned to face down on me. This lights my light up from the front and since there are two, I don't have too many shadows. This is the type of lights I have...the Umbrella really softens the light and it doesn't feel as hot. I'm thinking about looking into bulbs that don't emit so much heat.
