Smartphone journalism workshop: How to set up a home studio

Whether you go on live broadcast or present in front of the camera, a good-quality home studio can enhance your performance significantly. Who hasn’t come across a badly-lit or a hardly understandable reporter or politician in the news?

A home studio doesn’t have to cost a huge amount of money. With a few tweaks you can already go a long way and work with what you already have on hand.

In this session, we will focus on the most important aspects for a well-equipped home studio:

Camera (smartphone or DSLR?), background, lighting, audio and other helpful equipment and apps. The session will be hands-on, taking into consideration both the basic and the more advanced setting.

After the session you will be able to plan your studio according to your own needs as you will have a structure to work with.
