Are you losing video quality due to poor lighting? Don’t worry! This article provides our top 4 Lights for creating video content.
Having adequate lighting for your video recordings will boost the quality to a more professional level, and will give you more creative control over your shots.
Before buying a light, here are the things to consider:
Multi- vs Single-Light Setup?
Most options are a single ring light, however for those who want a professional background and want to build a video set, having more than one light will allow for more dynamic lighting.
That said, one ring light will be sufficient for your needs, including your interview shoots.
