I recently took over the area in my apartment that is meant to be a dining room and turned it into a little studio-esque area, with my light studio and a table to film videos at :) Before there was a glass circle table in this room and I had my light studio on it, but it really wasn’t efficient. Since we don’t use the table for eating, the table and all the chairs around it were a bit pointless, so I took them out, got a corner table at Ikea, and started using that for my light studio. It’s a MILLION times more efficient!!
After setting that up I decided to use the other side of the room for filming videos, because then I could have a background behind me (it’s so much easier than having my room behind me, because I always have to make sure everything looks really clean, otherwise I get complaints.. along with complaints about the fan reflections, the fan making noise, etc) along with a completely bare table that is 2x as big as my current makeup table in my room (and I’m sure you’ve noticed the rummaging noise when I can’t find something that has been lost in the depths of my makeup mess when I film, I am NOT an organized beauty girl!!) With this table I can just grab what I need from my room and bring it out here so there is very little mess!
Okay, enough with the novel!! I will get pictures up of my little ~studio~ in another blog post :) I filmed a test video last night to see how the lighting and set-up worked on camera, and decided to upload it since I haven’t uploaded a tutorial in awhile. Enjoy!!
