My third vlog: how did I do? I think I am getting better. I feel like I am. I have learned some tricks and tips by watching YouTube and doing my videos. On this video, the biggest thing I learned is that I really need to get a ND filter. If you watch closely enough, you will notice that I get some rolling shutter effect (jello motion in background), jerky movement and dropped frames, which make even more jerky movements. That is because being down at the beach with the bright sunlight and the reflection of light from the sand just made my camera settings not right for video. The ND filter will cut the light reaching the lens, which in turn will have less light hitting the camera sensor. This will keep my camera settings for video in a proper area for recording. The suggested setting is a slower shutter speed. If you are filming at 30 fps, you need a 1/60th shutter speed. I still have much to learn.
I am having fun making and learning about video storytelling. There is much more to come, so sign up for my newsletter to keep informed when new content is out.
