Stupid question but uhm, can someone get addicted to talking to a video camera while out and about in public..? Seriously, it's a legitimate question because I am now hauling my video camera everywhere and film whenever I don't feel too weird about it haha! Don't get me wrong, I still feel completely dumb talking to myself in the car but I like to think that should someone in the car next to me wonders if I'm a weirdo that I can say I was talking on the phone right?? Still...it weirds me out LOL....But get this, not awkward enough to STOP doing it though? I just filmed my 3rd vlog and I'm uploading my 2nd vlog right now as we speak! I kinda want to involve my hubby into it, he'd be a complete natural but I dunno...He's gonna get all...all...constructive on me because he's got more experience talking to inanimate objects LOL! No, seriously...lol...Yeah, let me mull this one over for a bit..
I am constantly struggling to find proper lighting for my pics and videos. I want to film in my creative space but the light coming from my window isn't always the best. I have been playing around with lights and proper positioning and hoping it works for my next video. I think my camera isn't that great wither and have already decided to save some moolah for a new camera. I've done comparison shopping everywhere and yet the best deal is found locally surprisingly! So fingers crossed I can improve my videos even more soon!
As for my pics I have found perfect lighting and that's in my kitchen LOL! I finally figured out what I need to properly prop items up and how to effectively showcase them. I don't know if the last post I made about the Archie's Girls lipstick and powder show improvement but I'm pretty pleased with them so I think I'll stick with that location. If only I could film there!
I'm not sure what my next video will be. I've done my first vlog which honestly wasn't that horrible to do I guess. I feel completely weird talking in public to a camera or my iPhone so I don't know how visually stimulating my vlogs will be LOL! I'll try to do my best as usual though and if something I filmed stinks I won't post it up. In fact, a lot of stuff I've filmed never gets used. I always scrap it and start fresh. Ya, I know, pretty time consuming but I'm so OCD that way. If I'm not 150% happy with anything I produce i.e. illustrations, designs, blog posts, pictures etc. I don't post it up. It's a reflection of who I am so taking the time to fully and properly oversee it's correct is a small investment on my part which I'm fully content with :)
That's it from me this week. I have been exhausted more than usual. I literally fall asleep by 10:30pm and sometimes not even know it - no joke!
Yeah...I finally sat down and redid my blog. I don't usually publish a blog design until I am fully happy with it but I just wanted something up so I chose whatever pretty template there was. I then neglected my blog for weeks or even months at a time because of life in general. However, the designer in me was never fully happy with the granola design chosen so I just spent a few hours today revamping a template that was pretty simple yet aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Naturally I also spent another few hours trying to change the HTML coding to further customize things ugh..If there is one thing I have no patience for it is coding! OMG definitely not my strength but I got it done finally! I hope you like it...I think it's definitely a reflection of my design style: simple, little blobs of red scattered within the posts and always a little Angie graphic to showcase what my blog is about :) Sigh..and now, I can sleep again!
