Getting Started

What’s up people, it’s Nome here and today we’re gonna do something a little bit different than usual. I’m here in my apartment and I’m just about to set up to shoot some videos. I thought it would be kind of a cool thing to show you guys what that process is like. I’ve talked in previous videos about a little bit of my lighting, a little bit of my audio setup and a little bit of my gear, but I’ve never gone through the entire process of how I set up to shoot a video and I’ve got some new gear and some new ways that I do things so I figured it would be kind of cool to take you guys through that entire experience. So that’s exactly what we’re gonna do and without further ado, let’s get set up.


The first step, of course, is to put on water for coffee – just a given. As I wait for the water to get hot enough to make coffee, I start to bring out all the stands and equipment that I’ll need.

This is the space that I film in. You probably recognize the shelves as the desk with way too much stuff on it. It’s a complete disaster right now with product boxes on the floor, my backpack, cat food, and stuff on my wife’s desk because I just kind of take over the whole space while she’s gone.

Setting Up

As the water heats up, I head over to the closet to get all the stands and equipment that I’ll need for today’s shoot.

In our little storage closet, I keep all my stands and equipment. I have tripods, a box full of extras, lights, and audio equipment, but what I’ll need today is in this drum hardware bag, which I repurposed to hold all of my light stands and microphone stands.

Inside the bag, I’ve got my main C-stand, a boom arm stand with the video mic pro, a flimsy cheap light stand, and a Pixel K80 on the Big C-stand that will be my backlight or rim light. I also have a couple of backdrop stands with acoustic blankets attached to them.

With all the necessary stands in place, I can start setting up.

Camera Setup

The first thing I place is my camera, a Sony a6500 with a Tamron 28-75mm lens. I typically shoot my videos on a Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens, but I’m trying out the Tamron for today’s shoot.

As I’m setting everything up, I constantly come back to the camera to check if it’s in the frame or if I need to make adjustments.

Now that I’ve got the camera set up, I move on to setting up my rim light, acoustic blankets, and other equipment, constantly checking back with the camera to ensure everything is in place.

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to talk about the sponsor of this video, Squarespace.
