Press Play Video Coach - HK 2 OB: Lighting tips

When filming an OB, look for the best, most even lighting you can on the face of the speaker or speakers.

This clip shows... how sunlight can reflect in many different ways and cast shadows across your face - as you can see when I move around.

You can also see how the sun can get in your eyes, reflect off buildings and cause the camera to come in and out of focus slightly as the light levels change. Another reason to run a lighting test shoot before you start to film.

When you want a variety of backdrops when filming in one place, try to find the most even light - you'll see even I don't always get it right, but it's a good rule of thumb to shoot by!
