You love to cook. Maybe you’re a professional chef, or maybe your a devout foodie who gets off on creating the dishes you love to eat.
Either way, you can’t wait to share your creations, and the creative journey you take arriving at them, online.
That’s truly great.
And while your creativity, passion, expertise, and experience in the kitchen, will take you a fair way along your sharing journey, you do need more.
You need technique.
Your passion and recipes may draw in the viewers you long to enthrall, but they won’t stick around for long if your videos are hard to follow, poorly lit, or shaky.
To get started, here are some basics to keep in mind.
For food pics, go for a medium close-up and stay away from anything too artsy.
To make sure that none of your amazing dish gets drenched in shadow, its best to film in daylight, using a large, soft light.
Color your food shots naturally and keep your frame rates diverse, in order to keep things interesting.
Be methodical with your shots, capturing every step of the cooking process.
Tick off every item on this list and you will be well on your way to creating delectable cooking videos that will have your audience salivating and begging for more.
- Cooking videos on YouTube are extremely popular, but how you film them is just as important as the content itself.
- Cameramen should use a combination of medium shots and medium close ups, all while utilizing diffused light.
- It’s important that each step of the recipe is fully captured so the viewing audience does not get lost.
