How to Become a Good Videographer and Content Creator for Youtube

It is quite evident just how many hundreds upon hundreds of people have become successful Youtubers in recent years. From posting a random video every once in awhile, to regularly posting a few each month, to posting at a constant interval and high frequency. The amount of money some of these video makers earn is staggering. With the right idea and the right tools, you can really make a fortune following in their footsteps.

However, it’s not as easy as it looks. What many people don’t understand is just how hard it can be to actually to make content for Youtube that then generates money. You need to have creativity that is transformed into interesting, unique videos, which relate to other people.

The videos can be funny, helpful, or educational, but they must capture the interest of your viewers. What started out as a platform that amateurs could thrive on, YouTube has graduated to almost requiring the use of higher quality video equipment, in order to “wow”  current millennial audiences. Of course, you don’t need to have a $30,000 camera like the ones used on sitcoms and movies, though. Using DSLR camera is a great alternative to an iphone, but significantly more reasonable than some of the Sony XDCAMs.

Nowadays, DSLR cameras have amazing capabilities and are really all that anyone needs to shoot excellent video. But if you want to ascend within Youtube, or above Youtube, upgrading and expanding your gear bag will certainly help. Using tools like a professional camera crane will definitely increase the quality of your shots, and therefore your movies look much better too. And if really want to create something beautiful in your films, a camera monitor allows both the freedom to capture the perfect shot, and the control to execute it. By using a camera monitor, you can directly see what’s being recorded on your DSLR camera without struggling with the viewfinder or being reduced to squinting at the display screen. It also allows you to get remote shots, so you can see whether or not your aerial footage looks good–while remaining squarely on the ground.

If you’re an amateur, just starting out on Youtube with a cheap camera or phone, you should also be learning about cinematography, videography, and filmmaking. Whether it is by watching videos on Youtube, reading, or actually being in a classroom. Lighting techniques, focus and ISO combinations and angling are all essentials in creating a cohesive, and interesting video. Once you’re comfortable with behind the camera,buying the proper equipment is the next big step, because those two things–knowledge and equipment– are often the determining factors in video quality.

If you happen to be looking for great gear for your videography projects, you can trust ProAm USA to have just what you need. Their professional video equipment will play a major role your journey to becoming a successful Youtuber and hopefully a successful videographer in the future.
