Over the years I have watched so many YouTube videos. Good, bad, bad but still educational, and well made that don’t have a good purpose. I’ve logged many hours watching things and learning what I do and don’t like about recording art videos.
I always thought…I want to do that! And I have in the past and they were terrible. That’s when I learned I had a good idea and a terrible plan. I started watching videos of people showing their recording setups so my terrible plan could improve.
I tried with my phone, I tried with my dslr camera, I got tripods and mounts and lights and all the craziness. Then a digital camcorder. Getting closer….I knew it couldn’t be that hard…
Setup the camcorder on my tripod and the tripod on the desk….and no space for my journal and supplies. Moved everything around. Tried a different tripod with a boom arm. Success!! Except it’s upside down!!! Wtf.
Reconfigure the office some more. Get hurt running my chair over my toes. Not successful. Reconfigure it again. Finally. But still upside down. Must be a software thing
Off to my computer. No software. Umm….
Found the software (thanks hon) downloaded and installed. And flipped my video right over and yes!!!! Finally!!! Now I’m in business!!
and YouTube doesn’t see it right side up…. for 2 hours. Finally got it! And now I can repeat it but also share my journal flip practice vid. Enjoy!
