3 quick & easy b-roll shots to improve video engagement

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

3 Quick & Easy B-roll shots

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.
