Behind the Scenes: Meet My Gear

Behind the Scenes: Meet My Gear

Tutorials and Tips, Videos
I've gotten quite a few questions about the gear I use to film and edit videos, so today I'm taking you backstage. In this video, I show you the gear I use most to produce high-quality videos and blog photos.  Disclaimers: I'm not posting this to brag or show off what I have. I've collected these items over the past few years and poured hours of research into each purchase. These are the items that work for me. I can't guarantee that these will all work for you. Some of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means that if you purchase something using my link, I get a small kickback at no cost to you.Please only buy gear that you think you'll use. If you're just starting out, I…

CVS Haul | June 2014

CVS Haul | June 2014

Hi, guys! Very exciting times--I made a video to show what I got at CVS yesterday. I know it's not perfect, and in fact I'm super nervous posting it knowing that there are obvious flaws, but we've all gotta start somewhere, right? Please watch, enjoy, and let me know what you think! I definitely want to keep at it and get better, so suggestions are welcomed. First thing on my list for next time is to fix the lighting... Next is to find some better video editing software while I'm away from home this summer (I'm rocking iMovie 2010 here after getting used to Adobe Premiere Pro).
