Lighting

Reviews are about the product – hello??? So, you need to use good lighting in your reviews.

Here are some lighting basics that will help you get started. First – before you shoot your review, do a test and look at the footage to make sure your light source gives a good look to your production.

Today’s cameras do a lot to compensate for low light but will often yield a grainy picture in the process.

Make sure you have sufficient light in your setting. Be careful of back light.

If you’re shooting outside, back light can be a concern – try to present in a setting that has even light and avoid walking from the sunlight to the shade or vice versa because your camera will try to adapt and the results may not be pretty.
