How to Create Vlogs in 9 Easy Steps

Whether you’re a YouTuber or a long-time professional editor, vlogging is a great way to share your experiences and grow an audience 

There are a few things you need to know in order to rock it in front of the camera and create vlogs.

1. Content

Brainstorm subjects you are passionate about and that are both interesting and engaging for viewers. Make sure to narrow down your topic, research it thoroughly, and jot down key points you want to cover in your video. To keep your vlog short, plan a general beginning, middle, and end.

2. Camera

The camera you use should directly relate to the type of vlog you want to produce. If you’re looking to film a simple blog from your desk, you can use your webcam. However if you need more detail and have a bit more equipment on-hand, a camcorder or DSLR on a tripod will the best results. If you’re filming a travel vlog, use either a sports camera or your phone.

3. Background

Consider your location. Are you standing in front of a white wall or a boring office building? Is there a half opened bag of chips and dirty laundry scattered all around your apartment. Think again.

4. Lighting

Lighting is everything so light it all up. Viewers immediately judge a video by the quality of lighting. This is the one case where more can be better.

Remember, the light should be pointed at you, not behind you. Otherwise you’ll look like a shadow creature.

5. Audio

Try to find a quiet place or shoot in a room with good acoustics. Nobody is going to listen to you if they can’t hear what you’re saying.

Before filming your vlog be sure to test your camera’s audio quality. 

6. Presentation

Remember the key points you jotted down earlier, relax and have fun. Be confident and talk to the camera when you create vlogs like you go way back.

7. Editing Software

Now that you’ve got your footage to create a vlog, you’ll need video editing software to help you cut, trim and tie it all together. Find software that will fit your budget. The top players in the game are Apple Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Grass Valley EDIUS, and Sony Vegas Pro. You can explore less expensive options but if you’re planning on doing this long term, better tools are worth the investment.

8. Post Production

Be aware that the quality of your camera and lighting can only go so far. To really make yourself and your footage look good, plugins are a great option that deliver results fast.

9. Share

Be sure to prepare it for SEO and share it across your social media channel.
