I'm getting ready to pick up some smart lights soon, I want ones I can link up and control with my phone, any brand recommendations?
What do you use now since it's been 2 years since you posted this? Also, have you changed your lighting set up or are you still using the same lights. Your lighting and cam look extra perfect since MFC did the HD upgrade. I personally think you have the most clear, HD looking room on all of MFC.I use a Logitech 9000 still
Still the 9000 and still similar lighting. I may finally upgrade to the c920 soon as I tried it for my video game streaming and it looks really nice on the higher res vid in MFC.What do you use now since it's been 2 years since you posted this?

It looks like your bulbs are cool tone. Maybe look for soft white instead and lower watt. I love these lights from Lowes:believe the answer to my own question is I need to get a better tall light that has a more natural tint to it. But I was hoping for a second opinion and/or suggestions as to a more suitable light I can use?
They're pricey, but I HIGHLY recommend these! I bought this starter and an extra bulb that I use as my camroom lights. I've added a few other lights and a light strip in other rooms of my house. I love them so much. There's apps that will let them strobe or "lava lamp" to music.I'm getting ready to pick up some smart lights soon, I want ones I can link up and control with my phone, any brand recommendations?
I've seen this before, but it's still mesmerizing... and rather trippy. I'd love to see each frame, and where the light was.I'll just leave this gif of how angles change your look
When you do, let us know! I'd love to see you work your magic! I followed you on twitter.I have all these ideas and all this advice, when will I use it for myself?
Abbeyrain on CB has huge glasses. I noticed that she uses two strip lights, one above the camera and one below it. This lets her raise and lower head without the lights reflecting in them and they also give her good diffused frontal light without a lot of space.Still trying to figure out how to prevent my ring lights from reflecting in my glasses while filming. I've purchased a diffuser and I have anti-reflective coating on my glasses, but I can still see the outline of the light in my glasses on camera.
No filter, I wasn't on cam when I sent these today, they were junk ones I was showing my husband lol. I took actual photos today and emailed to myself this time, with a new background, and no makeup or anything so please be gentle lol. I'm taking this week off because I I'm not practiced at those tips of faking stuffThat background is doing nothing for you.
Also, please take a screenshot and post that. Photographing your screen doesn't show what your webcam would look like on stream. It also looks like you are using a filter.
I have such a mixture of every kind of lighting in my cam space and I use it ALLLLL! Being a redhead (I'm hard to light) who moves all over my camspace and needs to be well lit everywhere, I've definitely adopted the kitchen sink lighting strategy.
When it comes to overall room lighting, everyone is different and will benefit from different setups.
My two best tips that really apply to everyone are
1. Defuse your light. Paper lamps, shades, shoot through umbrellas... any form of lighting will be best diffused to create a more even and soft light source.
2. Have a low placed light, such as a desk lamp on the floor to avoid that dark hole affect, especially if you often stand.
Please please get a paper lamp instead of draping the shirt over it. That is just a fire waiting to happen.As a brand new model, I've had a lot of success with one floor lamp (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20110903/#) with a white t-shirt draped over it, and a Logitech 920. Don't even know what light bulb I have in it. I position it behind my camera, pointing pretty straight at me, maybe 3-4 feet from my face, with no other lights on in the room. I'm a little washed out, but at this point I don't mind. Also I don't do cumshows, so mostly I'm just trying to illuminate my face and tits, and my setup works enough for that.
I'm *definitely* intrigued by changing my angle however. That gif above was super cool. When I'm broadcasting I feel like I'm constantly catching my face in a weird (unflattering) angle, and turning my head/pulling my chin down to compensate. Definitely need to experiment with what lighting angle looks best for my face.
Thanks for all the info guys!
