So far, this is the best setup for shooting how-to videos I've come up with at the shed (or anyplace else!) Two lamps, one of them with both incandescent and fluorescent, one shop light, and the little lamp pointed at a sheet of styrofoam for bounced, indirect light. It's STILL darker than I'd like, but so far so good.
My ancient tripod helps, but of course getting it located so the camera is sort of over my shoulder so it can catch my hands drawing or whatever is a tad awkward. Better than the desktop tripod I WAS using, of course!
So far the FlipVideo works best. As you can see, space is tight--big shock in a 10 x 10 space full of other stuff, eh??
And this morning's lovely cold post-blizzard sunrise...we were out there shortly after that, drinking coffee and working! Yes, the floor is still cold. Oh well. By NEXT winter, we'll have that solved, one way or another!
