I’ve tried to do this before, and despite my best efforts, got sidetracked and never followed through on creating a daily vlog. But that changes, now. I realize that daily vlogs aren’t anything new or novel in the world of YouTube – but it does serve as a great challenge for those of us looking to hone our craft.
For me, this vlog will be a great daily exercise in storytelling, editing, and sharing. Hopefully, I’ll learn some tricks along the way, all of which I intend on sharing and teaching to anyone who cares to follow along.
Note: This segment was taken from the 2021 BibRave BRProud Summit, and is just a sampling of materials covered.
Do you think it’s time to take your social photos up a notch? Here’s a quick 5 min segment outlining some considerations.
Here’s the condensed notes:
1. Consider its use! GoPro’s, 360° cameras, drones and the like are powerfully awesome tools. But are an investment of time and money. Consider how often you’ll use this technology and decide if it’s worth the investment.
2. Save money – once you’ve decided to pull the trigger, look for sales (especially on older models), used equipment, and even factory refurbished are a great way to save money.
3. Consider the application – most name brand cameras have an associated application. These make it easy to review, capture, and share your action shots right from your phone. If the action camera you are considering doesn’t have an app, think about how you’ll retrieve the footage? Is it easy or a hassle?
4. Be cautious of knockoffs – these can be enticing especially when they are priced in the $30-60 range. Check the reviews and do your research! Find out how they work and if they are a match for you.
