Whether you’re aspiring to embark on a full-time career as a beauty, lifestyle, or fashion vlogger or just simply want to take your video and photography game (or conference call get-up) to the next level, investing in a complexion-enhancing and camera-stabilizing set-up will give you an instant boost in the quality of the content you’re putting out there. Ring lights are the secret behind the filter-like quality you see on perfectly-lit videos and pictures from professional photographers, bloggers, and videographers, while background-noise mufflers and compact tripods are key for reducing shake and blurriness. Fortunately, there are plenty of budget-friendly sets complete with the basics for vlogging, whether you’re using a smartphone or DLSR camera to create.
These handy and amateur-friendly kits come with everything you need for beginner bloggers looking to refine and improve their skills without breaking the bank with pricey, professional-grade equipment. Even if you’re merely looking to get a leg up on your social media (or selfie) game, these kits will definitely take your videos, photos, and vlogs to the next level. Ahead, check out our favorite kits that will help you refine your craft without going broke on the basics.
