How to food vlog like a pro.
Want to show off your culinary expertise? Here are a few tips to help you learn how to food vlog like the pros.
Know what you want to say and shoot.
Pro food vloggers don’t record their videos off the cuff. They know exactly what they want to say and shoot before the camera starts rolling. They might even practice their scripts and camera angles for days beforehand.
If you really want to vlog like the pros, the first thing you need to do is write a script and prepare a shot list. Having these two things will help you stay on track during the shoot and also help ensure you don’t forget any vital pieces of information. Plus, a rehearsal or two will increase your confidence on camera.
Use the right equipment.
If you want to vlog like a pro, your content needs to look professional. Use the right equipment to make your vlog stand out:
- High-quality camera — While it’s possible to use your cell phone, most professional vloggers have a standalone high-definition camera (or multiple cameras) to record all the action.
- Tripod — Since you’re the subject of the video, you’ll need something to hold the camera. Use a tripod that can easily adjust to various angles to get every inch of delicious content.
- Microphone — Your camera might have a built-in mic, but the best way to record high-quality audio is with a standalone microphone. That way, you can speak at a normal volume while recording.
Edit your vlog to perfection.
No matter how good the equipment, you should always edit your vlog with video editing software like Adobe Premiere Pro. A video editor will let you make cuts and add enhancements like music, text, and animations to take your food vlogs to the next level.
