Get a Good Mic
Travel video logs (vlogs) are an amusing way to share your experiences with others. It's fun to star in your own version of the Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. Well, you can learn how to do this by following some simple steps.
First of all, you need to decide how you want to create it. Do you want to record footage, and then add some voice-over work? Or, do you want to create it on the fly, taking footage of yourself on the scene?
Whichever way you decide to create your footage, you should probably buy a good microphone for the job. The microphone that comes with your camcorder usually won't do the trick, especially if there's a lot of background noise. So, buying one that cuts down unnecessary surrounding noise may be best. Even if you're just going to add some voice-over work to the footage, you still need a good microphone to hook up to your computer.
