How to make a cooking video in 10 Minutes?
Will you have a culinary passion? Have you ever contemplated sharing it via a vlog? You see cooking videos on Twitter, Twitter, Instagram and other social media sites, but you don’t know where to start and how? Ok, let me tell you, in order to start and create cooking videos, you don’t need to be a specialist in video editing or videos in particular. Here are a few tips and stuff you’ll need to get started with.
Things You Will Need to Start Making Cooking Videos
1. Obviously, you’ll need a camera first and foremost. 2 cameras, preferably. If you own a DSLR camera, it’ll be fine for you. You can get a huge advantage by using a flip screen monitor, since you can easily see what is being filmed in real time. But if that’s not what you have, no problem. You should use your computer, just make sure the output is excellent, and make sure you aim at a minimum setting of 1080p.

2You’re still going to need a tripod, which lets you get a steady video when filming. Please do not ask a member of your family to keep the camera for you. I say, no one needs a video that’s blurry. There are DSLR tripods, as well as handset tripods.
3. Lights would be required. Getting dim, badly-lit scenes is one thing that discourages an audience from viewing a movie. There are several lighting kits that, if you’re serious about shooting at home, are available online. You can render an affordable set-up as well. You can get a “soft” LED or CFL bulb for the light bulbs. Get a light stand as well, and lights with an overhead clip. You can do a homemade trick if you like to use soft packets. If you have a lamp, place wax paper over it so you can have a nice diffused light, because hard light is the one thing you don’t want for these images, particularly for close-ups, because you’re going to have really hard shadows, and that’s not what you want.
4. Mic, I personally think that’s optional, but you may want to get a boom if you want to, so you can really hang over what you’re cooking, so that you can pick up the sound. Or, when you edit the video, you can only add music on it.
5. Software for Video Editing. Free software is open. IMovie for MAC (free), Windows Video Creator for PC (free), or Filmora Wondershare Editor (inexpensive and easy to use for beginners, for MAC & PC)
Here are a couple of tips on making quality and beneficial cooking videos that will do great online until you’re prepared with all these.
1. Camera Setup. You’ll need to do 2 shoots if you’re hoping to involve yourself or the chef in the film. 1 is an angle that concentrates on the chef. And second, close up shots of the food that is already prepared and cooked. The top view angle that you normally see online, such as those carried out by Delicious, is one of the most common angles. It will appear like the two shots are working together in real time if you make the edits sufficiently smooth. Or you can actually do a top view of something that really gives the audience a close up look at everything that’s going on, and you can either add a narrator or a quick instructional text to the backdrop of the footage.
2. Get an office that is tidy and ordered. Very fine stage dressing is one of the main advocates of these videos. You don’t want a dirty cooking floor, you just want cool, clean stuff to make your videos attract people.
3. With shades. Cooking videos simply feed their viewers’ eyes, and the aim is to make them crave your dish and want to cook it. So, it’s important to keep your ingredients and overall meal aesthetics at the top of your mind. If you’re making a dish like a fluffy pasta with very pale ingredients, try to garnish it with herbs or shrimp and use a bright plate to set it on afterwards. Before you begin to film, always correct the white balance. White equilibrium implies that all the colors filmed are real. Holding up a white sheet of paper and changing the white balance so the paper appears white is the best way to achieve this.
4. It is important what you wear. Don’t wear loud-print shirts or white shirts as they blend with the background. You want the audience to concentrate not on what you’re wearing, but on the food. Instead, consider wearing a light but strong colored dress.
5. Cash fired. Notice that cut video of a moist pastry, that sandwich oozing with cheese and mouth watering patty, that drizzling gooey chocolate on a dessert. That you like to get. As appetizing as it can be, make any shot. When they watch your recipes being made, you want people’s mouths to water!
6. Captions. Captions. I even watch videos of cooking and one thing I enjoy most is if the video is written with the ingredients. Also, if you’re already typing your videos in words, adding subtitles can be a huge help, especially for those with hearing difficulty.
Now that you have a decent idea to create a video about food, it’s time to start making it. Grab your food, get the kitchen ready, and start cooking. Just don’t forget to turn the camera on there!
