Laptop or Desktop
If shooting the videos is the half and then good editing and publishing are the other has. There are many editing tools available online to make your video more professional and creative. Bu to bear that tool you must have a laptop or a desktop. Male sure your system has enough RAM so that your software does not get stuck or the editing takes time.
You can edit both the audio and video with the help of your video editing tool on the system. The happy fact is that for beginners there are many free tools on the market. You can begin simple and gradually grow with premium tools.
If you are making simple and shot videos like Instagram reels or youtube shots I must tell you that creators are actively using their smartphones both for shooting videos as well as for editing and posting them. Of course, you will not be getting the assured flawless quality as in a DSLR camera edited with an expert tool, but still, you can make a good one.
But make sure your smartphone has a good camera. Because if you compromise more on the quality of your video then your video may not get the expected reach.
Who prefers to see a shaky video! People do not want to see shaky videos as they can be disturbing. That’s the reason most video creators use a good tripod to hold their camera or smartphone. Likewise, you should also buy one according to your shooting gadget. Buy a good tripod that can hold both your smartphone as well as your camera.

Do you think people will love to watch your videos or listen to your podcast which has an unclear voice with a lot of background noise? No. Believe me, even if you have created a wonderful video creation, if the audio quality is poor with the tapping noise on the microphone, the chances of your video getting skipped are high.
As the combination of video and audio makes a good creation, important attention must be paid when choosing a good microphone. It should highlight the quality of the audio while reducing the unwanted background noise to the maximum.
You must get the mercy of mother nature if you are not using external light set up while creating your videos. The impact or proper light adjustment is one of the important factors in creating a quality outcome of the shot.
That is the reason it is always recommended to make use of lights that you can adjust according to the angle and mood of your video. In case you do not know how to use the light adjustments, as I have already told you, make effective use of youtube tutorials.
