The easiest thing to do while shooting a video blog is to sit or stand in front of the camera and record yourself talking. But I would encourage you to think carefully about the setting. Dressing the set can say a lot about the subject without needing to explain. While you do not want something too distracting that take the viewer’s attention away from what is being said, you don’t want something plain either.
You could also try interviewing or discussing with another person on camera. Your interaction with them can add for interesting viewing. Also, it is easier to talk to someone in front of you rather than talk to a camera lens. And it allows for conversation. You will find yourself more at ease because there is someone you are reacting to rather than having to perform solo.
In the next post, I will talk about things you can bear in mind while shooting your video blog.
