DIY Desktop Studio Set Up

September 09, 2020

Y'know, I'm not one for doing Youtube tutorial videos featuring my face, as I prefer to just make videos that show the finished product. I've been thinking about maybe changing that up in the future though, but I'm still not sure about putting my mug on camera. ;) I totally appreciate people who are comfortable enough doing so, but I'm not there quite yet. I've been thinking about how I can show my work flow when I shoot small objects and stuff for Stock Agencies like Shutterstock, Adobe Stock and Pond5, or products for my Etsy Shop in my little garage studio which consists of a basic work table/bench on which I set up either a white seamless backdrop, or use a variety of bases and backgrounds to create the look I'm after depending on the product or object I'm shooting. 

I stumbled across this awesome video from DSLR Video Shooter on Youtube that features an amazing desktop set up for filming Youtube style videos. It's got everything you'll ever need for setting up your own little home desk studio, including lighting, mic stands, capture devices, tripod mounts, etc. The kicker is that it can be set up for a relatively low amount of money; under $400 for equipment excluding the camera. I was watching this video and I immediately thought of how I could incorporate most of this set up to shoot my work flow scenes in my garage studio. The monitor stand, swing arms, lighting and tripod extension are what really caught my eye and could be adapted to my work bench/table set up very easily. 

 If you, or some one you know is looking to set up a desktop/workflow/Youtube style video studio, check this video out, it helped me, and maybe it can help you.
