They day has finally arrived!
What day is it, you ask?
New course day! Video course day! Hooray!!!
I hope you are as excited about this as I am, because creating food videos is the hottest thing since sliced bread. Not only are they fun for your subscribers to watch, they also really grow your readership because of their shareability on social media. It’s a win-win!
There’s a lot that goes into creating a recipe video, though. So much that we couldn’t possibly fit it all into one course. So with this course we’re starting with the very basics – the equipment you’ll need to get started making amazing recipe videos, and the camera settings you’ll need to be familiar with before you start to shoot.
The equipment videos were all really interesting to me – I learned what kind of lens they use at Pinch of Yum to get everything in the frame without having the raise the camera up too high, what kind of tripods they use (not super spendy ones!), and why external monitors are handy.
My favorite part of the settings videos was learning new things about the standard camera settings – like aperture and shutter speed – because how they are used changes a bit when shooting video as opposed to just photos. Super interesting!
In the coming months we’ll be adding more courses on creating awesome food videos to our library. Keep an eye out for courses on planning everything out, doing an actual shoot, and making the final edits. It’s going to be exciting!
