Since you already make your videos at home, wouldn’t it be great to have a professional-looking place to film them in? Follow these tips to create an indoor video studio on a budget.
1. Create an appealing background.
Many YouTubers use a green screen, which can be purchased and easily installed for under $100. If you aren’t ready to purchase a green screen, simply create a background by placing your camera in a stationary position facing a wall. Label off the area that is in the camera shot and place things in the shot that you feel resemble your channel.
For example, a great stationary background is a bookshelf and a fireplace with other decorative objects that describe yourself and your channel. To make a background that can be changed often, hang different colored sheets.
2. Find even lighting.
The best (and cheapest) lighting for videos is natural light from the sun. Build the studio in a room that has a lot of windows. This will help you save money on lights that would provide the same amount of illumination as the natural light from the sun.
If you can’t find an open area with natural lights from the windows, play around with the placement of different lamps to find an evenly cast tone.
3. Film in a quiet place.
Try to find a place in your house that is not prone to noise. It is important to reduce echo in your footage. Place fluffy things in the room with your studio, such as pillows or blankets. This will absorb echo in the room.
Most microphones that are built into video recording devices are not the highest quality. It is recommended to purchase an external microphone to help increase audio quality.
Many of the most professional-looking studios on YouTube are in someone’s house and were created for next to nothing. Background, lighting, and sound quality are the first steps to creating a professional video studio.
