Another cooking show video

I recorded this the same day as the other video, it may have some of the same problems as the first one, but i found recording and editing the 2nd video was much easier than the first, again any recommendations appreciated..

The talent in your first video was better looking! :)

Overall, it was pretty good. The timing and editing were good. Talent seemed very comfortable in front of the camera. A couple of things I found distracting.

1) The hard overhead light that had a hot spot on the talent's hair. A soft box key light would make it not seem so harsh

2) The dreaded ZOOM! Don't! Cut to the different shots. Your eyes don't zoom, they cut to position. In most cases, zooming makes an otherwise professional piece look a bit amaturistic.

3) same issue as the last video, get in tighter on the talent.
