So Why Does Casey Neistat Always Wear Sunglasses?
Even though i have been watching Casey’s videos for almost two years, the fact he still wears sunglasses constantly still hasn’t settled. However this perception changed after he finally explained why he is always wearing sunglasses regardless of the setting.
With the nature of Vlogging you always have a camera pointed at yourself while doing what you do. Instead of just guessing to get the right shot. Many Vloggers use cameras with flip screens so they can see themselves live while recording.
So instead of looking at the lens directly, many Vloggers look at the flip screen which mean you are looking away from the lens. This is the main reason behind Casey always wearing sunglasses as he believes him looking away from the camera would be distracting to the viewer. Thanks for looking out for use Casey!
