As a travel blogger, panoramic shots of natural landscapes, timelapse videos of the sky, or stop-motion videos of food are all great ways to get noticed – natural lighting, be it sunlight or moonlight, can play a huge role in making each of these content pieces pop when used right, and the basics of these are all explored through the chapters in our Editing and Cinematography and Still Photography modules.
