With the rise of social media platforms, vlogging has become a popular way to share your life to the world. Share your stories and experiences no matter where you are while staying in the moment.

The first step to getting started is to understand how to create content with quality. Hands down, one of the most decisive factors to create high-quality vlogs is to have the right gear! But getting the perfect gear to enhance your smartphone can be a troublesome process to go through. Here are 3 quick tips on how to improve your vlog setup in a snap!

1. Vlogging on-the-go with ease

Whether it's Instagram Live, TikTok, or Youtube livestream, being able to vlog on the go is an important tool for content creators. However, we all face the struggle of holding onto phones one-handedly on a day-to-day basis. With the smartphone in one hand and narrating or doing an action with the other can often make recording videos a difficult process. We often end up having to use two hands in order to secure our devices and keep them from slipping away.

3. Lighting is key to set the tone

Whether you are creating a funny skit on Tiktok or sharing bits of your life on Instagram, having the right lighting can make all the difference to how your content is presented. Poorly lit or dimly lit videos often don’t look as attractive and can turn away potential viewers. While natural light is always ideal, but it isn’t always feasible depending on the time of day or weather conditions. In most cases, artificial light is necessary to provide a good quality image and professional looking results. 

No matter what kind of lighting you are using, it is important to use it correctly. When it comes to vlogging or livestreaming, light plays an important role in setting the right tone for your content. The color temperature of light can have a big impact on how your audience perceives your videos. A cool light (5000K) is perfect for creating a fresh, vibrant look, whereas a warm light (3000K) can make your video look more inviting and intimate.

To get the best possible look, you may want to consider adding ProLEDs Bi-color Panel to your shot. This color panel has a range from 2500K to 6500K and can be used to adjust the color temperature of the light, allowing you to find the perfect tone for your content. The ability to customize the light makes it easier to create moods and atmospheres that reflect the tone of your video.
