If you’re an artist and crafter who likes to post art videos, Instagram Reels or Tiktoks a filming set-up is essential in a craft room. Over the years my crafting area and filming area has evolved. Currently I use small craft table and these light boxes (similar lighting option) and ring light for lighting.

For my camera set-up I use this phone stand and film directly from my iPhone. I the phone stand set-up on a rolling storage cart so that it doesn’t shake while filming. And for a simple white background for videos I simply use cheap white foam board that I get at the craft store.
