“How can I look more professional on video?”
I get asked this question almost weekly!
The thing is… there is a secret. And it has NOTHING to do with your camera.
It has a LOT to do with your audio.
If you’re using the built-in mic on your camera or computer, you are not doing your videos justice!
Of course, there are loads of different types of mics you can get. Some plug in via USB and others plug in via the ‘mic’ jack.
My personal fave is the ‘lav’ mic. (Short for lavalier.)
It clips on your shirt/blouse/jacket and is close enough to your mouth to give you a nice, intimate sound.
If you’re just getting started, you can easily get by with one for less than $50.
