What is the best lighting options for stopmotion?

I have done a few stop motion projects, but I can never seem to find the sweet spot when it comes to lighting, and I'm looking to improve and see what I can do to give them the "realistic" look, without taking away all shadows. Any advice on what would be the best?

Is it a good idea to start small and post animations on YouTube?

I see a lot of animators start off small on YouTube or other social medias, but those situations are quick to follow with some drama of someone stealing their art or people being harshly critiqued over their work. Does social media discourage young artists, or is it a good opportunity to start...

I am in the 11th grade, and I still dont have a clear vision of what I want to do in life, however I've always loved watch animators do their job, so I've become interested. Whats the best thing about being an animator?
