Stands

Make sure to weight all stands down with something heavy, like a sandbag, to keep it from tipping over. You can even DIY a sandbag by filling a plastic bag with sand (or something similar to dry rice or beans).

NOTE: While the Amazon Basic Stand is great for starting out, it uses inexpensive materials and is not as sturdy so it is not recommended unless you will be shooting mainly in a single location and are just needed a basic kit to start out. It will last about a year or so, but if you require a more long-term solution this option is not the best. 

Audio

Good audio is essential and here are some reason to consider it: 

  1. Certain rooms absorb or echo sound – mics ensure you capture the sound and it is consistent
  2. Reduces any background noise – make sure you pick up the audio you want instead of everything
