Canon EOS SL1/100D using the kit lens 18-55 f/3.5 - 5.6
I am trying to film indoor videos using the DSLR as it's image quality for stills is so much better than anything else I own (iPhone, really...).
I am only using overhead lights right now, and I only have access to that lens. I also have a larger 75-200 (ish) but the f-stops do not go down as low, which really is pointless indoors.
I would like to know how I can best achieve a lower-light video indoors, similar to videos made with DSLRs online, like this one.
I know the camera has something to do with it, but I feel a run-of-the-mill current DSLR body can get me far. I feel like the lens does really well for stills, but just isn't big enough for low-light videos. I also know a 3-spot lighting technique can help me as well, but I'm unsure where I can start first to get the best results.
No matter what I do I realize that the ISO needs to come down. Should a lower f-stop or better lighting get me further? I would like to have the background blurry more than what I'm finding the 3.5 can do, which makes me think I need a different lens... but that could also just be my inabilities with photography.
Feel free to take a look at a recent video I just shot with the setup described. No worries, it's terrible.
