No Lights No Camera – No Action
Ian and Anthony of Smosh here, welcome to another How To Video. And this lighting szzks.
We are doing a segment on lighting – we can’t have this crappy light.
Can we just shot in the dark?
I’m turning on the light.
No No – No don’t!
( Lights are turned on )
Whoa, o – what are you wearing?
I thought we were going to shot in the dark so I just came over here after work.
As I was saying, if you want a video to be any good you actually have to be able to see the people in the video. Yes Anthony?
What if you aren’t good looking?
Background voice of Ian: Then you do this, there. Now no one can see your ugly face.
Anthony: Wow, thanks.
Ian: A good tip is to use two to three times as much light as you would normally would use in a room. If you use too much light you will end up like Anthony’s face over here.
Anthony: Make sure the light uniformally covers the subject, you don’t want the light to only cover half your face or make any type of shadows.
Ian: Fluorescent incondescant bulbs along with sunlight all give off a different color light. Make sure that you are using the same lighting in your shot so that you don’t have contrasting colors.
Anthony: You can also get a web-cam that automatically corrects this lighting issue like a QuickCam with right light technology.
Ian: Lastly we suggest you do a quick test run in front of your camera’s preview so that way you can see how you look, that’s what I do and look at me.
Anthony: If you don’t believe these tips won’t make a good video just listen to this success story.
Kid in front of Vehicle: Thanks to Smosh’s tips I get lost of views on my videos just look at my new expensive car behind me.
