Video Filming & Editing: First Experience

Below is the first video clip I filmed and partially edited.  Uploading and editing this small clip was a breeze for me because I have worked with video editing before.   However, I was getting used to the video camera and stand, since I had not been in class to learn about the camera.

I figured out how to use the camera, mic and stand on my own! It took some experimenting, but I have always been good with technology.

The original video length of this clip was four minutes long. I watched the entire video a few tomes before editing it. Then I chose the best 30 second segment in the video that I liked the best and cut the rest out! Easy.

I chose to film my dog for this practice clip because he is entertaining and cute.  Plus, who doesn’t love animals! He was easy to film and wasn’t self-conscious in front of the camera.

Intricate Details in Nature Photos

I enjoy capturing pictures of nature.  I am fascinated by the intricate details and various designs and colors in nature that is apparent within a photos.

Professional Camera

I took this photo with a professional camera.  The photo on the left is good quality because the camera is, of course better quality.

This photo of the dandelion is not as good quality because I took it with my camera phone, which has only 8.0 megapixels.  When I captured the picture of the flower on the right there was a shadow blocking the light.  In both these photos above one can compare and contrast the shapes of the petals and the various details and designs in the grass.

wood & dead leaves

I took this photo with the photography camera.  The details of the rings in this peice of wood is what drew me to capture this picture.  Observe the small bug near the edge of the wooden plank. There are specs of dirt and also one tiny water droplet on the dead leaf.

Capturing and observing these nature photos has opened my eyes to the patterns, designs and colors that make up the beauty world we live in.  Photography is truly an amazing thing.
