How I set up my Video Camera, which is actually a digital camera that is video capable. I used materials I had around the home and purchased: 2 lights, (wiring supplies) and a gorillapod tripod. So far I think this works for me, maybe it will help you in finding a better solution for you? If you have questions please feel free to ask.. A special Thank you to my Husband Henry for helping me..

Update: I have purchased a Sony Handy Cam and my videos are much better because of this purchase.

The other thing I have done different than the video above is added more lights. It is hard to tell in the photo but I have added 4 more clamp on lights with the daylight bulbs. I think it makes my videos much brighter than the earlier ones.

I’m looking into purchasing another camera soon so that I can take shots from multiple angles. Like taking a head shot of me talking while I’m making an item. Then when I edit the video I would insert the talking head part between my hands working. I would move my “stand” to accommodate this option.. I’m also looking for other types of cameras for live streaming.. So much more I want to do, and so little time…

I hope this helps you with your video setup! Have a blessed day…
