There are several rules when it comes to shooting photos or video that can make enormous differences in the quality of the product.
One is that having good lighting can make a cheap camera outperform a much more expensive camera that doesn’t have good light.
I invested in a new DSLR camera to shoot the podcast. Also a dummy battery for the camera. A dummy battery is a battery for the camera that is actually attached to a wall plug which provides continuous power and doesn’t rely on the camera’s native battery that would likely not have enough juice to last through an entire session of live streaming the podcast. The third piece of the puzzle is going to be these studio lights.
With all these pieces in place, the quality of the live stream should jump up dramatically.
