In order to create a successful documentary, lighting is one aspect that myself and Joe need to concentrate a lot on. When it comes to making videos and documentaries, your lighting makes a bigger difference in the quality of your finished product than what kind of camera you use. In fact, a cheap camera with great lighting will produce a better looking shot than an expensive camera with terrible lighting.

  • Close ups are well lit
  • Background is lit up
  • Natural lighting
  • White Balance is perfect
