In this 3-part video series, I’m excited to bring in Caleb Wojcik from DIYVideoGuy.com to teach us about recording great audio for videos. Each video covers a different aspect of the audio recording process:
- Shotgun Microphones – Benefits, Options, How to Use
- Lavalier Microphones – Benefits, Options, How to Use
- Recording Great Audio – In camera options, external recording device options, how to record
I hope you enjoy these three videos, as much as I had fun shooting them with Caleb. Check out his YouTube channel, to see some After Effects tutorials that I did for him.
Shotgun Microphone Tutorial
In this audio recording tutorial, Caleb shows us how to properly record audio directly into the camera and with an external recording device like a Zoom H4N or Tascam DR-100mkii. Caleb walks us through how to boost levels properly to avoid hiss and distortion. He also gives us general tips for recording better audio indoors and outdoors.
