Rode Wireless Go Audio Settings For Beginners.

I supposed to do short YouTube video about setting up a Rode Wireless Go Audio Settings. But end up giving so much more than just a few tips and tricks.

I end up teaching people how to set audio for every video production. When I first start learning about audio I thought to myself why would audio be so important than video? The truth of the matter is audio is actually more important than video.

Have you heard of someone said that you can tolerate a bad video but you will not tolerate a bad audio. If someone is watching YouTube right now and if the video is okay but the audio is bad people will click away in three seconds.

But to tell a successful stories we need another element to the mixes of video and audio production. Can you guess what it it? There’s a saying in photography that the pros talk about lighting and amateurs talk about cameras.

Lighting is a photographer language. The exposure triangle in photography is all about lighting in disguised. It is a scientific and mathematical model of light.

The Time-Lapse Nuts Model of great story telling is LAV model. Lighting, Audio and Video. Some times in the film world they have different order for this holy trinity of story telling through LAV. But this is my blog, you have to read it from my perspective.

Next time you about to share a story think about the LAV model that you read in this blog. Lighting is first, second is audio then video. Guess what most people do when it time to share a story. They think of a camera first as it does both right?

The degree of what the camera can do both audio and video varies considerably. I am guilty of this myself to think first of a camera. Ten years ago video production was out of the hands of ordinary people but now with advancement in computing power. Video production is available to the masses.

The cost of a video computer back in 2011 was astronomical that only production house can afford them. But now the iPhone can actually edit 4K footages.

My first camera was great at video and still that is visual. But it is poorly in audio department. Mainly the manufacturer fault that the camera I bought first up didn’t have a microphone jack. Back then even manufacturer set the tone for the consumer to be visual focus. So was my focus was just on stills or photography, but I quickly recognised the future is in the moving image not still. So I slowly develop my skills.

The GH4 was my dream camera back when it first came out, but I couldn’t afford the budget to go straight to 4K video production. Now it is in my hands and 4K production seem possible now.

Video is a big tick, audio is a small tick and lighting has no tick. Natural light and more specifically window light is free. As least I know what to work on and develop my skills further right?

I'm a freelance makeup artist from Sydney, Australia. If you hang around creative people long enough you well get the bug to create as well. So now I am into photography, timelapse photography and maybe video/film later.
