I'm about to do an interview for my company. We are a small company and we didn't want to hire someone so I thought I could just help out since I already have a lot of the DSLR equipment.
As a beginner, should I be buying a lavalier mic or shotgun? Which is easier to use as a beginner? Would the wire from the lavalier be a headache to attach? I will be interviewing the CEO so his time is precious.
Also, I don't plan to bring a lot of gear to site so even if I used a shotgun boom I won't have the stand to put it above him. It might have to be in front of him to the side etc.
What is your recommendation?
