How to Shoot and Edit your Own Video For Online Viewing

By Anthony Thurston on March 27th 2014

We constantly receive many questions about how we shoot and produce our own videos (which you can find on our Youtube Channel). Caleb Pike runs DSLR Video Shooter, one of my favorite resources for DSLR video production, and he just released this really well made video on how he produces his shows.

If you have ever wondered what goes into producing a show for online consumption, or maybe you are just curious about what it takes, then you should check this out. It is probably one of the most thorough and the best start-to-finish video on this topic that I have seen personally.

As you can see, its not some super complicated or expensive production, it’s just a matter of having a system and sticking to it. If you want to know the hardest part about producing a show, it’s keeping a schedule and staying organized.


Here is some of the gear mentioned in the video in case you are interested:

We use very similar concepts when we produce our own videos for our YouTube. We do some different things while on location when shooting our workshops, like the Natural Light Couples DVD and the Newborn Portraiture Workshop, but the process and steps Caleb talks about in this video are a great place to start if you are interested in producing your own videos.

Were you surprised at how simple it was? What are your thoughts on the gear? Share your thoughts below and let us know what you think.
