Here is the 2nd in our Series "All About the Vlog." This is a timelapse video showing you how easy it is to hide clutter by using a portable backdrop. This one is from Westcott, and is called an Xdrop Backdrop, and comes in many different colors.
If you elect to show an area in your home/office, make sure it is appealing and decluttered, and not too distracting. Or just do yourself a favor and buy this backdrop. Takes about 3 minutes to assemble and comes in its own carrying case.
Incidentally, I created this video on my iPhone 5. Simply go to your camera, and instead of selecting the Video feature, select Timelapse. You may notice that there's also a Slow-Mo feature.
