    How many light sources are you using?

    1 desk lamp. How do you post a picture from your desktop? I want to show how the frames look.

    You want to use at least two coming in from different sides, if you have three (with the third coming from your angle) you should get pretty good lighting.

    For anybody reading this thread, here’s a lighting guide for a Logitech QC Pro 9000 and if you use MonkeyJam.

    1. I use 2 IKEA desklamps over my sets and stick them to the table with gaffa tape as with my sets, to stop them moving around, thus altering the light. Also, cut a sheet of paper into quarters and tape them to the lights, to stop too much brightness. Remember to only use the lamps. DO NOT use the room’s main light. Remember to stop ANY sunlight coming through ANY windows.

    2. On the settings in the camera icon, untick the Auto above White Balance. Then adjust the settings until you get a good image.

    3. In the tab with the eye on it, turn off the RightLight Setting and have all the settings down fully.

    4. In the tab with the owl, turn off the Automatic Settings and put Exposure on highest. Then set Gain to a position that gives a good lighted image. Also, turn off Anti-Flicker and LED Control.

    5. If like me you use MonkeyJam and whenever you start filming, the camera settings go to their defaults, it’s a good idea to take a Print Screen of the camera’s control panels. This is an easy way to reset your settings if nessesary.
