A Video in 2019 Q&A

We recently held a free event called the Video in 2019 Summit, and it focused on ways you can level-up your recipe videos in the new year.

Our last session of the day was a Q&A with Pinch of Yum’s Video Specialist, Emily Caruso, and she answered listener-submitted questions about style, lighting, tools, and more.

Emily creates awesome Pinch of Yum recipe videos all by herself in her home, so if you’re producing videos without a fancy studio, you’ll find this episode inspirational, motivational, and full of helpful tips!

  • How she created different videos for different platforms
