I started using video to share ideas a couple of months ago. I decided that instead of waiting to have all the tools and equipement, waiting for my 4-month-old son to give me 45 minutes to set it all up, waiting to find a piece of wall without my 3-year-old’s stickers, or a patch of floor big enough without toy cars or rattles, I am just going to do it with what I have.
The results are not the prettiest, but I started!
I want to share with you how I do my videos with no special equipment – just my iPhone. But when I sit down to write the how-to, I realize that it’s about a bigger message.
So, here is the video of this bigger message, and then below you will find the how-to.
And here is my set up when I do my video:
yep, that’s it.
The daylight filtered through the blinds actually works very well. And the computer screen provides the third point of lighting if you have a bright screen on (e.g. a blank word document).
I record into my iPhone, and then upload the video directly onto YouTube.
Then I go into YouTube’s editing tool and adjust the exposure, then use the annotation tool to add notes, titles etc.
Hit “publish”, bam, I have a video to share!
yep, that simple.
