Tutorial: GoPro Music Video Set Up


If you’re going to produce a home music video, you want to make it look good, even if it’s just you and your guitar sitting on a couch. Fortunately, this doesn’t require a lot of expensive cameras and lights — but it does require something more than just your laptop’s camera and a desk lamp. In this video, I’ll demonstrate how you can use a couple of GoPro HERO cameras and a few inexpensive photography lights to capture a professional looking music video. Special thanks go to Berklee Online degree student Carla Hassett for donating her time, talent, lovely playing, and cozy little home to help make this tutorial happen!
