Creating the Ideal Recording Environment
Okay, you are going to love me after watching this segment because I'm going to share just a couple of simple, easy, inexpensive ways you can enhance the quality of your shows.
Interested? Okay, there's the hook. Okay, the first thing we’re going to start with is lighting. Here, right now as we’re recording, I'm looking at two painter’s lights you know the kinds that are bright yellow with the halogen bulbs on top. Yes, those kinds. They are only $30.00 to $35.00 a piece, yes. We have one of them facing away from me. We have one of them facing directly at me. That helps take the shadows away and make it looks very professional. Yes. Okay, so that’s lighting.
The second thing I want to talk about is distractions and noise. We want you to be in a place where you don’t have people running behind you. You have kind of a nice background. You don’t have cell phones going off, fax machines, air conditioners turning on, for audio, something we've learned are really nice secrets and it will give you a couple of minutes of quite time as well as is to find a walk-in closet. The clothes actually help absorb the sound, so it has a double bonus there. You get to be alone and the acoustics are enhanced actually. It makes you sound like you're in a recording studio.
Now if you're doing video, do not record from the walk-in closet. Find a quiet place. Get a babysitter to take the kids outside. Send the dog out. Just do simple little things that will help you get some alone time, it will help you focus and it will help your viewers really be able to focus what you're saying. So lighting and background noise and distractions, those two things will really help enhance the quality of your show.
