The biggest question when it comes to starting any type of media is, “what do I need?” The answer to that question is pretty simple and not as complicated as you might think. You do not need any fancy equipment, what you mostly need is what is in your hand right now…..a smartphone or a laptop! Easy. To create any type of media first, you need to create an account. Next, is all in your hands. If you want to create a Youtube video, use your phone! If you have a phone that is less than 4 years old, it most likely shoots in 4K which is AWESOME and great quality. There are easy apps you can download if you want to practice editing, but remember practice makes perfect! You mostly need you and your creativity to create any media you would like whether it would be tweeting on Twitter, pictures on Instagram or content on YouTube. You do not need any special lighting because natural lighting is best! Just find a window in your home where the sunbeams inside and there is your perfect lighting.

So go ahead and get started! Film your first video or post your first photo and see what kind of engagement you get! Don’t get discouraged! Next, we will talk about some type of equipment you would like to use, not that you need it, but we all want to be a little extra in our lives!
