Shooting Podcast Video with Platypod Max!

Words, photos, and video by Chamira Young

As handy as Platypod is for photo, it’s also super handy for video as well! Recently I used my Platypod Max with my Sigma 18-35mm 1.8 lens to shoot this short Pro Photographer Journey podcast episode. The only light source I used was a giant window on my left side.

The Platypod Max fit perfectly into one of the cubby holes at my desk. Check out the setup below. In fact, it’s the exact same setup I used for a quick headshot I recently posted on this blog.


Below is the final video. Enjoy!
