I’d like to start recording videos of myself drawing and painting. I’m curious what the best setups are for this. I’m especially interested in where/how to place a camera so it doesn’t interfere with my process, but also doesn’t create distortion for the viewer. I work standing up at an easel, and haven’t really found a video setup that works with that. But I’ve seen videos online that are successful.
What kind of setups are you all using, or have seen that work well?
OMG—I’d love to the answers to this one. My video setups are the ABSOLUTE worst. Many of LoD/LoP exercises that I filmed were actually done while looking at the camera screen. --Hilariously horrible.
I’m following this thread for sure.
My ideal setup would be something that’s just there unobtrusively, and I can easily just film or not film while I work, and it produces a good quality video. Maybe a bit of a pipe dream, but it seems like the right goal to shoot towards.
Well, I’ve learned a ton from your videos! So something is working at least. I really appreciate the effort you’ve put in.
Most of the videos I’ve seen from you seem to be looking down at a horizontal surface. Is that right?
