If you talk shop when you talk about videography, people love to talk about cameras, smooth slide tracks, and lenses. The less sexy stuff includes tripods and lighting. But if you listen to Brady Shearer, it’s about the audio and lighting first. I tend to agree for the most part.
For me, the lighting has always been something I looked for but never invested in. Sun needs to be in my face, lighting track needs to be in front of me not on top of my head, and dark shots are useless. With my new computer system, I had ZERO lighting in front of me except my monitors.
