Someone gave me really good advice for making videos — just do it. If you wait until you know everything, you’ll never get around to doing it. I started simply and have gotten better and learned along the way.
The picture shown is my current setup. I was previous using a tripod to hold my phone to record. Now I’ve switched to using a camera stand from Arkon. Search for ” Hd8RV29“, but they have many options.
I was looking for a stand that would be small enough to not get in the way of crafting, with the tripod I had to have it on the desk or annoyingly over my shoulder. I also wanted something heavily enough to hold a camcorder when I upgrade from using my phone, basically a stand that would grow with my video skills.
