Creative Blog- Creative Direction, Branding and Design Projects
Hello and hi and this is going to be a slightly different kind of blog post, but hopefully still useful all the same.
I feel I've got a really good lille setup for making my youtube videos and as a result, I've got stuck into a solid routine of filming and uploading helpful content.

I thought I'd share what I use with you in case anyone is interested. I feel like indie labels who want to up their content and SoMe game without investing LOADS into equipment would really benefit from this. Or music artists who want a step up from using their phone camera ✌🏼 (No disrespect to phone cameras, they've gotten super good! But you know what I mean).
Ok so here we go. For 'sit down' videos I use a basic but solid Sony camera on an also basic but solid tripod. Natural daylight helps a very large amount so I try to film around late morning and I always film with me facing the window. As Copenhagen is usually pretty grey (I love you but you are so grey), I add much needed light with a rather large ring light which is SUCH A DREAM. It is so bright... truly blinding if you turn it up to the highest setting. In the height of summer, sometimes I can get away without it, but getting into the habit of bringing it out each time I need to film is definitely a Good Thing.
For videos 'on the go' I purchased a Go Pro Hero 8. I found it awkward taking the camera around town and while travelling and the go pro is the perfect answer to this conundrum. It's small, light, waterproof, everything proof and I have it attached to a handy grip which makes it super easy to use. The stabilisation is easily as good as a gimbal and the I'm really impressed with the quality. I feel I should add though, that it isn't great in low light or for close ups. I use it for a 'general shooting outside the house in daylight and all weather conditions' and it works amazingly well for that. It doesn't have a flip out screen but the picture is so wide that it's easy to vlog on too!
And there you have it. My simple but does-the-job-quite-well-I-think setup. For anyone based in the UK I've linked the products I've mentioned.
