Okay, I just joined and I'm pumped to learn how to take my videos to the next level.
My main issue is outdoor light. I was told for the best lighting, the subject (me) has to face the sun. Well, my blue eyes can't take it and I squint bigtime.
So, I shot first thing in the morning when it was light out, but the video quality came out horrible. Very dull.

My son tried to tweak it in Sony Vegas HD 9.0, but he doesn't know enough. It came out okay, but needs to be much better.
So what is my solution to shoot outdoors and not look directly into sun and squint?
Secondly, our editing is not good, but we just can't figure out our Vegas software enough. I'd like to have better looking callouts, and be able to brand my videos better, so any help would be much, much appreciated.
P.S. We have a Sony HDV HC1 HD camera.
