I visited a good friend last Saturday to check out their mini studio. They are in YouTube uploading hilarious videos (check them out). They are both good in video editing as well.
So I told my friend Marga if I can shoot trial tutorials in their place and try if I can apply the same set up in my room.
They painted one corner of their apartment white and placed three lights above plus two more in front. They have a white bulb and two fluorescent for the top light and then six fluorescent light for the left and right lights.
I forgot to photograph their DIY lightings but it was a work of a genius. One should invest money, time, and effort in order to create a masterpiece.
White backgrounds give superb results on photos and videos.
Making YouTube videos is a non-stop learning of technology and other stuff.
I will try to make my vanity area full of lights.
And then we shot my YT video.
Here are some snapshots.
They used Sony Nex-5 to take photos and videos. We tried a quick brow tutorial as well as my everyday makeup look.
I wish I could learn how to pose looking pretty on photos.
Of course I won’t leave the house without trying a makeup look to my friend. We browsed an image in Google and I recreated it.
I received comments that this makeup was awful. I do not know why, maybe I am not good putting makeup on other people at all or maybe the concept is ugly.
It looks abstract according to some.
Despite those comments I had a great time last Saturday and I am looking forward bonding with friends as often as we can.
