Section 2: Planning, Designing & Modifying Your Studio

Location, location, location. Selecting a good space to build your studio is the most important thing you'll have to do.


Don't let the door hit your pretty face (or your expensive equipment) when you want to get into or leave your studio.


Follow the light and you will gain new clarity when recording videos.


Hello... Hello... Helllloo.. Ouch lets get rid of that nasty echo!


Let's get rid of unwanted echo by padding the walls of your studio. It can even make your studio look more cool!

Test your understanding of the various elements to get better audio in your home studio.

Section 3: Getting Better Audio & Audio Equipment

Get started with a low budget, but still get high-quality audio in your studio.


Are you a podcaster, or are you trying to create better screencast videos? This microphone might be what you need.


Investing in a lavalier microphone is your best bet if you do a variety of stuff in your studio.


Moving around a lot means you'll need an audio capture device that moves with you.

Section 4: Getting Better Lighting & Lighting Equipment

With just three lights, you can get a really good look for your videos.


Getting a softbox is essential to light up your subject (you?) and create better videos.


Let's dissect a softbox and understand what makes it work, as well as what you need to look out for when buying a softbox.


L.E.D lights are supposed to be energy-efficient & last ages. Myth or reality?

Section 5: Recording Better Video & Video Equipment

Don't want to display the contents of your nostril to your audience? Then you have to position your laptop correctly when using the built-in HD webcam.


No built-in webcam? No worry. There are tons of external HD webcams you can buy that records great videos easily.

Bigger is not always better! Choosing the right type of green screen can help you save money and avoid frustration..
