CELL PHONE TRIPOD ADAPTER

This is basically the end of a selfie stick. So if you have a selfie stick, check and see if you can unscrew the end. That will work too!

LIGHT WEIGHT CELL PHONE TRIPOD (Inexpensive and light weight)

I use this more than anything. It's super lightweight and would probably blow over in a storm… but I don't “livestorm” very often. : )

MeFOTO HEAVY DUTY TRIPOD(A little more moolah but tough enough to stand up to an a more adventurous live video.)

MY FAVORITE!!! WINDOW/CLAMP CELLPHONE MOUNT (I clamp this onto my “standing desk.”)

These are great for windows so you can get natural light, or mirrors. AND, you can also clamp it onto a standing desk (aka music stand – see below.)  THEN you can have your computer nearby, it's amazing and a must have for your live video gear.

MEDIUM LIGHTS THAT CAN BE USED ANYWHERE – POWERED BY AA BATTERIES

I just started using this light. It's really nice because it's so small… BUT it's not quite as bright as the others. So I'm going to get two : )

Also, it doesn't come with a tripod… so you may want to grab this tripod as well.

AWESOME POP UP BACKDROP 

I love mixing up my locations on Facebook Live… but this solid black back drop is an AMAZING staple. And. it easily folds up like a car sun shield. I recorded a video of it in action that I'll post soon.

MAKEUP THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE A ROCKSTAR

With the crazy lights on your face, it's really easy to get washed out. You'll look more like YOU if you spruce it up a bit with some lashes, lips, lids, and rouge. You can find my absolute favorite makeup line for the camera at www.WooHooLashes.com

Go rock the camera! Share your goodness with the world!

    Thank you, Molly. I am going to be demonstrating painting techniques or other art techs during my FBLive events. Struggling a little with the logistics of switching between the camera on my face and the camera focused on my hands/project. Any suggestions? I figure manually adjusting may be weird. The gooseneck clamps should help….

  5. Ron Snayberger says:

    Thanks for the list. I already have some of the tools but you gave me ideas.
