Hi Kind Friends!
Today I have for you a tutorial on how I made my new motivational collage for my YouTube videos. I’ve been thinking for a long time that my channel needed a regularly background that was not just pretty but also made me feel good.
Let me know if you think I succeeded in the comments!
Check out the step by step directions below.
1. Gather supplies
For my motivational images I used cards from Rifle Paper Co., cards I’ve been given as gifts, some cut outs from my Lorna Jane agenda, and photos. You can cut out pictures from magazines, buy prints on Etsy, print out images from Tumblr, whatever you prefer!
You will also need something to affix your items to the wall like tape and scissors or sticky tack.
2. Prepare the area for filming.
Set up your tripod, seat, and lightening. It’s important to keep all three in mind when adding items to your wall.
3. Take a test shot (or two).
Add a few items to the wall, guessing where you think the placement should be. Then, take a picture or test footage, moving your arms around, etc. so you can see where the collage should extend to.
4. Make your collage.
Using your test shot of picture as guidance, fill in your collage. Periodically update your test shot so you can see how the collage is progressing. Take note of how the colors in your collage may change your skin tone when being filmed. Everything bounces off of each other!
Enjoy! I have quite a few videos coming up with this new background. If you make videos, I hope you found this helpful.
