6. Light It Up


Good lighting has the power to take your vid from dull to dayum! So it's worth taking the time to get it right. Natural light is always a winner but if you've gotta go artificial then it's all about balance.

Light up your face from the left and right, (slightly) above is always better and be sure that your background isn't too dark 🔦

7. You Did What?!


We're talking how-tos after all, so you need to make sure we can follow what you're doing. Speeding up sections is great but make sure you slow it down at the crucial steps!

A great test is to ask a friend to follow your tutorial and see what their results are... 

8. Give Us A Twirl

Think about that money shot to show off all you've achieved, it could be a close up, a turn or a full length view.
