I have recently acquired much of the equipment needed for a photo and video studio. I have a camera, tripod, boom, micro phones, lights, and even a light box.
While I am very much enjoying having and using this equipment, it is not where my skills are strongest.
I shoot my own videos and the majority of my photos.
I also do all my own editing on my computer.
You can hear the dog whining in one of my recent videos. I’m sure that there is a way to edit that out, but I don’t know what it is. I do know how to flip my knitting content so that even though I was knitting left handed when I shot it looks right handed.
Why do I do all this work myself? Why do I shoot videos and take tons of pictures?
I do all this work myself because I can’t afford to hire anyone. Thanks to the education I got in high school I can work a camera and computer well enough to learn to edit better and I am and the quality will get better.
But why bother in the first place? Because I want to help others level up their stitching skills by showing them in as many ways as I can how to do something new.
Most of the tutorials that I have will be techniques for particular patterns. The YouTube videos for example have a list of patterns the technique can be found in at the beginning of the video.
As I get more photo tutorials together there will be a page to download those from Payhip for free.
I would like to move into downloadable classes with a mixed format with some live Q and A. That is part of the 5 year plan.
I do welcome any thoughts, comments or ideas you’d like to share along this journey.
Tomorrow will be my first YouTube release in a long time and I am so very excited!
