Thinking of adding b-roll to your videos to make them more engaging, but not quite sure how to approach it?

Second shot could be a close up of either the screen, if that’s important, or a shot of them typing on the keyboard. And last of all, closeup of their face.
You’re now establishing that much needed connection with the audience. Now this is of course just a foundation, and we could get more elaborate and creative but it’s is a great starting point to build from.
