Hi, I am new to this forum


Hi, I am new to this forum and new to video in general but with a strong background in still photography. I have a need to produce short web based videos and need to get my head around the basics equipment requirement needed to do a decent job. The equipment I currently own includes the following: 


1. Canon 7d with a reasonable selection of quality glass

2. A good tripod

3. Rode Videomic

4. 27" iMac current model


What I don't have but realise I need is:


1. A basic lighting system, including backdrops

2. Appropriate software 


So I guess I need to know is the equipment I have appropriate and what advise can you give me on the lighting system an software?


Many thanks in advance, any ideas, advice or suggestions gratefully received.
