Newbie here with a few questions.
I’m looking to film myself talking in front of a white background and was wondering what I should use for lighting. Right now I have a Canon Vixia HF M30 and filming in my apartment is just horrible due to the low light.
Therefore I was thinking of getting a lighting kit. I was thinking of getting something like this:
along with a white background from Cowboy Studios as well. Is this overkill for my needs? The video will be for a sales page on a website for a product that I will be selling.
Basically I want to create something that looks almost exactly like the guy talking in this video at this site: http://www.doubleyourdating.com
Any feedback or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
This might help. Eric is really good and like many of us, does not have unlimited funds.
I find it easy and quick to just shot over a kayable bknd then key em over white. I maintan full control over shadows, ect this way and never have to speand more than a couple of minutes lighting.
