How do you improve your video skills? By taking video!
Whatever you plan to do, just start! Right now!
but see the post for more 😉
… neither was Twitter when I first started it. Or anything else. Last night I adviced a friend “don’t wait for something big to get your Twitter profile going, just do it! Go ahead and make mistakes, then learn from it.”
… I myself was trying to push myself to get better at taking video for quite a while, but couldn’t seem to come up with an idea.
Yesterday, entriely unrelated, I decided to finally start another project I’d had on my mind for some time: The question of whether or not I could live without meat. The time of lent started today where people fasten until Easter after celebrating Mardi Gras. Wonderful timing!
All those came together and I decided: I don’t care that I don’t have a decent camera, I’m just going to start doing it.
here’s a video of firsts, as published on Facebook earlier today:
“Ok, this is embarrassing… but hey, you learn from your mistakes, right?
Here’s to a lot of firsts:
– 1st video taken with my Nokia 5800 phone
– 1st fail to hold the camera in the right angle
– 1st direct video upload from the phone (so I didn’t even notice it was flipped!)
– 1st day (of 40) without meat…
… bare with me… thank you! 😉
Take this and learn from my mistakes! I hope the quality will improve over the next weeks 😉
Update: Video No. 2 of that day (turned but still crappy) is here.
