This is my vlog from the other day. I’m still editing yesterday’s vlog, but I’ll be caught up soon here. Just been a bit tired from the vacation. We packed in a lot of fun this past week, and now I have to get caught up on some personal projects as well as prep for the upcoming week. Here’s the vlog. Hope you enjoy, I’m having a lot of fun editing videos again.
We went down to Ojo Caliente for today. Was an interesting day going through a mud bath and enjoying hot springs with rocks in the bottom. I had a relaxing day and didn’t film much because water vs cameras equals bad. Hope you enjoy the timelapses I made of our trip there and back though. I’m really having fun with them.
I’m thinking I might do VEDA (Vlog Every Day April) now that I’ve got a bit of a format down, although will be changing it up eventually. I’m finding it difficult to get time to myself to really have more conversational topic vlogs. I’ll likely change to that format when I get home since I work at home and don’t go out too much.
Three days into vlogging and I’m already feeling guilt that I haven’t filmed every single second of my day, but then again… The nice thing about this is that I am mastering my editing skills. Getting a little faster at the edits and figuring out what I like or don’t like style wise. I’m excited to challenge myself in this new medium. I know that once I get home that my vlogs won’t be filled with as many timelapses and jerky pans (I don’t have a tripod, sorry folks :c), and I’ll have to work on my skills at taking to the camera. So tomorrow I’m going to try to work on some messages and themes rather than just journal my day. There’s so many moments for me to elaborate that I have yet to take, and I know that I should. So tomorrow I’m going to work on some more in depth topics of discussion.
Hope you enjoy today’s vlog of the trip!
Also if you’re even watching or reading these thanks you! I appreciate it! ❤
Made it through another day of vlogging. Sorry this one is a bit late. I finished it at 1 AM and decided that I wanted to sleep instead of wait for it to upload to Youtube.
It was a fun hiking trip. I enjoyed being able to hike again, although my mother did not mentally prepare me for the sharp drops that we were hiking up. I expected a hike, but not one quite as steep as we went up. It was a lot of fun, very exhausting, but fun. We proceeded to follow this up with a huge dinner of pizza.
I’m pleased I’m making headway on my video goals since it’s been awhile since I’ve tackled that. It’s also nice trying to remember to keep track of my day to day and learning to put a quick narrative together for this story skillset I’m working on.
Anyway, I’ll elaborate on my trip and feelings about vlogging when I get home. I have a ton of photos and video I didn’t get to for edits today so more things will trickle out as time goes by.
And now, the vlog. More soon!
Practicing those timelapse skills today. I’m really in love with watching Casey Neistat’s videos so I thought it was time to test vlogging. I want to make other types to videos, but I have to start somewhere, so vlogging a trip seems like the best idea. Hope that you like this. I’ll have another one up tomorrow.
Long day. I plan on updating my animation stuff tomorrow instead of today. I want to make sure I’m uploading content that’s actually a progression rather than just content for the sake of content. In the meantime, I have a quick video I made just because I could in After Effects. Little experiment in mattes. Sorry for lack of music, I’m tired and don’t feel like hunting down the right sound at the moment. Will possibly add to it this weekend.
