Comment: YouTube lighting will transform your vlogs

I’m a couple of weeks into using these new lights and already my videos have gone from dark, grainy and amateur-feeling to sharp and bright with a professional finish.

You know who else uses solid lighting to make their vlogs ‘proper profesh’? Zoella, Marcus Butler, Joe Sugg, Alfie Deyes, Oli White, Caspar Lee and Charlieissocoollike, to name a few.


Connor Franta‘s vlogging lights do a good job, dontcha think?

Ultimately, if you’re serious about YouTube, you’ll need some lights. From what I’ve found, giving your videos that polish doesn’t have to cost hundreds of pounds, either. I’ve seen perfectly suitable kits for beginner’s ranging from £50-100. Do your research based on your needs and you’re likely to pick up a bargain.

If you’re serious about YouTube, you’ll need some lights.

It’s obvious: A good lighting kit is key to making your videos look more professional than ever before.
