Cody is so humble I’ve been around since 2016 and i remember that starting the Patreon podcast was Cody’s idea so Noel didn’t have to take coding jobs he hated to get by.

Cody, if you're curious about recreating the look of Hunter's shot, he lists all of his gear on his video. 1. CAMERA: Sony Alpha 7S III. You could probably use a Canon or Nikon or any decent DSLR, so this is less important than... 2. LENS: Sony SEL2470GM 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Any camera brand has a 24-70mm but the fast aperture (f/2.8) is the main ingredient. I'm thinking he also sets up the camera farther away, with the lens on the "long" end. (Such a distance might also explain why he uses a shotgun mic.) The wide aperture and relatively long focal length creates the picturesque depth of field – one of the best I've ever seen by a YouTuber. Look at the soft blur of the background objects, and even the back of his chair. All that said... from what I see from your own video, your choice of camera and lens works just fine. The difference is in the lighting. 3. MAIN LIGHT: Aputure 120D Mark 2 LED video light. This particular model has a color temp of 5500K ("daylight"). 4. LIGHT MODIFIER: 35-inch Aputure Light Dome II softbox and a 40-degree grid. This might be the key (no pun intended) to his look. From what I can estimate by the catch lights and the shadows of his nose and chin, he has the light positioned at 45 degrees off camera left and slightly above his head. There is a fair amount of falloff from his right side (camera left) of his face to his lift, which suggests the light source is quite close to him. The shadows are extremely soft, so much so that even the frames of his glasses leave almost nothing. We can only see two tiny little strips on either side of his nose. Having such a large light source – i.e. a 35-inch softbox – accomplishes that. In contrast, I'm guessing your light source is considerably smaller. This is based on the catch lights in your eyes and the moderate specularity on your forehead, right temple, and tip of your nose. The light also seems to be more or less in the same place as the camera (maybe just off camera left). The giveaway to that is the catch light whenever you look at the camera. Having the light source close to the shooting axis results in flatter lighting. That's not necessarily a bad thing, which is why so many beauty YouTubers use ring lights. But it does create an entirely different look from Hunter's shot. 4. LENS MODIFIER: Tiffen neutral-density filter. Seems like a minor piece of the puzzle, but it's coming in handy in two ways. For starters, it's reducing the overall contrast of the shot – sort of like wearing sunglasses indoors. Perhaps more importantly, he has a ring light deep in the background that throws an accent light onto himself (notice the specular highlight around his left ear). If he didn't have an ND filter on the lens, that accent light would be overwhelming and more than a little distracting. Finally, one last detail that may not be a conscious choice but it would (and should) inform the positioning of his lighting: when he talks, he turns his head slightly to his right. By setting up the light on the camera left, it means he's turning toward the light, resulting in a short lighting program. The shape of his face is such that short lighting is probably more flattering than broad lighting. Your face is more vertical, meaning broad lighting is likely the better choice. Hope that helps!

the biggest reason behind Cody's success is that he is genuinely hilarious... unlike 90% of people on the internet

I love the transparency; so cool and rare. Cody’s humility and honesty helps to de mystify a lot of gray areas

Cody not thanking Sam, Devin, Marcus, Noel, and Colby for absolutely carrying his old vlogs is criminal

Something about Cody makes me just want to watch ANYTHING he does. I usually don't watch every single video of the channels I subscribed to, but with Cody I can watch every video AND the replayability is insane.

@Plab Definitely watch all of his that’s cringe series. I have watched them multiple times even until now they are so good. His 2nd channel is also worth to watch

Cody, if you want your videos to look better you have to shoot in a log profile, close your windows and use proper lights. A log profile allows your camera to use its max dynamic range, and this gives you the freedom to color grade heavier, as well as, get the most out of your footage. The open windows are are flooding light in that has a different color temperature than the room and lights your currently using. Lastly, if you got a light like the Aputure LS 300x with the Light Dome II you could control the angle of the light for more a more cinematic quality. Plus, this light has great color accuracy. If you got the Canon R5 with an RF 24mm-70mm f/2.8 your videos could look exactly like that kids. Hope that helps, if you even see this.

Despite Cody getting a comp sci undergrad degree, working in tech, and living there, he still to this day has never pronounced silicon valley correctly

I think something this vid shoulda really dove deeper into is just how genuine cody is. A lot of people blow up but it never really lasts. The reason i believe Cody has this longevity and loyalty is really bc of how honest and relatable he is. Just bc he makes a ton of money it never feels like he’s using us strictly for bread. He enjoys what he does and we see it

Its refreshing to hear someone say they like "Change" and trying new things. More often I hear the opposite.
