So I am not a filmmaker. At all. My YouTube channel is sad. It’s so sad that when I had my blog design redone I didn’t ask for a YouTube icon. But times are changing and I have been told more than once I will vlog more. (And hopefully better…watching my vlogs is painful.)
So if you have a DSLR and you want to make movies, Digital SLR Video & Filmmaking For Dummies is a great place to start. Of course what if you aren’t planning to be a filmmaker? What if you just want to make your sad little channel a little less sad?
There’s lots of great info, even if you’re just looking to vlog. There’s a huge section on lighting. (Just ignore the Twilight reference…) Working on lighting is important for any use of your DSLR. Editing is a huge part of any video undertaking. And of course the book has a full section of editing tips and tricks. (There’s a much cooler Toy Story reference, too.)
