How to Light Your Photos and Videos | TECH TALK

How to properly light your photos and video. In this tutorial I will go over 3 lighting scenearios: day light (free), continuous fluorescent light ($$), and ring light ($$$). I use all 3 methods to light my videos. The steps are very simple and it’s more about manipulating the light to suit your needs/taste. These tips can be applied to photography, filmmaking and even your videos here on YouTube 🙂
