If you want the most professional-looking footage, you’ll need to take control of your lighting. Remember that your camera is nowhere near as sensitive as your eyes, so it takes extra effort to get a great image.
It is necessary to learn how to use the light that you already have in a location. More important, however, is trying to control it by adjusting the lighting or enhancing it by adding more light. If you take the time to focus on lighting, your footage will look its best. It might mean choosing a location with good available light or creating your own environment using lighting instruments.
