I finally shot my first video of healthy protein balls. The title of it really should be called 10,000 balls due to how many of these I made. Wait, let me rethink that.
In order to capture this video, I must have put in about 30 hours practicing. Our kitchen is
not much bigger than a casket not exactly ideal for a lot of cooking, hosting a 12 man band, or holding a lot of video equipment or lighting on top of that. I had 1 light. Wasn’t enough. I had 2 lights. Still wasn’t enough because 1 light would run into the other light and I had to move one back in order for them to fit…but if I moved 1 up, then 1 had to come down and there went the whole brightness thing again. It wasn’t as focused as I wanted it to be and the lighting was funky.
After several bottles of wine, a few tears (and we’ve already visited how many balls), I made up my mind I was going to get this. So, I looked at many tutorials and many blogs. I also saw a behind the scenes, food video by Buzzfeed.
I was sure they had to have some amazing equipment. So…strike one against me. I’m sure they also had to have had 10 light stands with 10 ft LED panels. I paused it at just the right moment where I saw the light set up. “Ok,” I thought. “I can do this.”
Your can dooooo ehhhht!
I gathered my lighting and my little camera and I set out to shoot my first ever video of protein balls. The only thing I didn’t have on hand which deviated from my normal Protein Balls Recipe were the mini chocolate chips. I happen to love them in mine, so I don’t omit them.

I’m super excited to make more though. It was fun! More time consuming but I loved it.
