00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:05,130

good morning welcome to today's video

and welcome to another edition of wisdom


2

00:00:05,130 --> 00:00:11,580

Wednesday today I'm going to be talking

to you about lighting but first roll the intro


3

00:00:24,920 --> 00:00:29,820

lighting is one of the most important

aspects of videography be that studio


4

00:00:29,830 --> 00:00:34,360

lights indoor lights outdoor light

natural lights I'm talking about


5

00:00:34,360 --> 00:00:39,220

lighting as a whole and if you can get

your setup locked down you'll take your


6

00:00:39,220 --> 00:00:43,420

videos to the next level if you don't

have access to studio lights natural


7

00:00:43,420 --> 00:00:48,790

light is your best friend so yourself up

next to a window like this so this is a


8

00:00:48,790 --> 00:00:53,080

great example of good window light as

you can see on my left hand side I've


9

00:00:53,080 --> 00:00:56,950

got a nice soft light coming in through

the window meaning that the shadows


10

00:00:56,950 --> 00:01:01,899

aren't too harsh on this side either so

you can see me clearly and focus on what


11

00:01:01,899 --> 00:01:05,680

I've got to say however if I set up on

the opposite side of the room you'll see


12

00:01:05,680 --> 00:01:10,149

that this is a completely different

story so I've now set the camera up on


13

00:01:10,149 --> 00:01:14,860

the opposite side of the room and as you

can see the light loss is significant


14

00:01:14,860 --> 00:01:17,979

and therefore the image quality when I

come to edit this is not going to be as


15

00:01:17,979 --> 00:01:22,330

good it's the same room with the same

lighting but a completely different


16

00:01:22,330 --> 00:01:26,860

image what you definitely want to avoid

is having your subject backlit otherwise


17

00:01:26,860 --> 00:01:30,280

they'll become silhouetted and your

audience will find it hard to engage


18

00:01:30,280 --> 00:01:34,840

with what they have to say so as you can

see it makes a massive difference where


19

00:01:34,840 --> 00:01:39,399

you set up within a room just by being

close to the window opposed to being in


20

00:01:39,400 --> 00:01:43,990

the corner or facing away from the

window bring so much more quality to


21

00:01:43,990 --> 00:01:47,560

your video content I'm the same theory

applies whether you're using studio


22

00:01:47,560 --> 00:01:51,160

lights or you're using the available

lights that you have in your room the


23

00:01:51,160 --> 00:01:55,509

difference is substantial so if you want

to learn more about lighting in the


24

00:01:55,509 --> 00:01:59,380

coming weeks I'll be doing a video on

studio lighting and I'll also be doing a


25

00:01:59,380 --> 00:02:03,400

video on DIY lighting setups that's it

for this week's wisdom Wednesday


26

00:02:03,400 --> 00:02:05,780

I'll see you in the next video
