We're forever being told that video is the best way to promote yourself online, however we understand that not everyone has the budget or the time to make videos using professional videographers or video companies. And that's totally fine!
Some people seem to have a knack of making great looking and sounding vlog posts, just with their phone or camera. But how?

We've set up a 3-part vlogging training course to take you from vlogging zero to vlogging hero. Some of the things we cover are:
Camera settings can be confusing - most people never get past the auto ones. We'll teach you which settings you need to enable you to get the best quality video from your kit.
We'll show you how to get the best from your location, how to set up your scene and how to watch out for things that could distract the viewer and take the focus away from you.
You don't need expensive lighting equipment. We'll show you how to get the most flattering light with the kit you have, or just by using the everyday items and light-sources around you.
We don't want you to sound like you're vlogging from the bathroom, so we'll show you how to use any microphones you have, or advise which one might be a good investment.
We'll let you loose on your filming, giving you tips specific to you. You'll use your camera and your own lights (where appropriate) - we want you to get the best out of your kit.
We'll help you to edit your vlog together, showing you how to do a basic grade, tweak the sound, add some music and any other sound effects you'd like.
