How to have natural light in a studio?
No better light than sunlight itself!
Streaming, videography and photography, well, who doesn't love them? As the social media game is getting stronger and stronger day by day, several have found their passion and profession in them. With that, studio setups and home studios have come into existence. While most studios tend to have LED and white ring lights, we often forget how magical natural light and sunshine are for our videos and pictures. But how can you create such conditions where the light in your room and studio is at par with the natural light outdoors? Let's find out!
The perfect home studio setup
Home studios are undoubtedly more cost-effective when compared to outdoor studios, apart from being far more accessible. Home studios today have gained immense popularity. A beginner home studio should consist of a PC, monitor, headphones, a camera or a good camera phone, LED lights, tripods and some stands and tables. It depends on the type of work that you have with your setup. For gamers and live video streamers, PCs and monitors are crucial. For social media influencers, a ring light and a great camera have the uttermost significance. Hence, a perfect studio will not only enhance your audio and video quality but also will attract your audience and help you gain appreciation.<!—H2 title-->
How can you manage natural lights in a studio?
The location of your studio plays the most critical role in having natural lights and sunshine in from the windows and doors. If you are about to set up a home studio, you should choose the room where sunlight directly falls in or try to remove the obstruction that blocks the sunlight. Additionally, you should not set up your camera right in front of the window or your natural light source.
Instead, place the camera parallel for the best photography and videography results. The windows should be completely open and not have permanent glasses or nets. If the sunlight doesn’t fall upon your subject well, it creates a blurry effect in the pictures. However, if you plan to experiment with such windows, remember to clean the glass and nets on time.<!—H2 title-->
