I've said it before and I'll say it again...
Our house is horrendous for lighting.
So, Boyfriend ordering me a set of soft-box lighting was - in my eyes - the most lovely gesture ever. It shows that he really takes an interest in my blogging and YouTube and really wants to help improve my video and photo quality. (The number of times he has seem me curse over turning grey/blue/yellow/orange/red in videos is just ridiculous.
Having new lighting means that I don't have to wait for the sun to be in the perfect place. I can film at any time I like. And in whatever weather condition. I've turned our little "box office" in to my new filming spot, and even though the lights take up most of the floor space, they make one hell of a difference!
I've already filmed my first video using the lights (I just couldn't help myself,) and can't wait to film more videos and take pictures to see how much things are improved. I feel like a new burst of inspiration has come over me now, and I can't wait to grow from strength to strength!
