This video is a bit of a mess. I had a plan, but at the same time I was in a hurry to get started on the project. Add to that the fact that I'm still wrapping my head around the controls for the new camera and we have the results in the latest video.
It starts out well enough. Or, at least I thought it did when I was editing it. For some reason I am not sharp. Like I'm slightly out of focus. There are two possible reasons for that. The most likely is that I had forgotten to turn on autofocus. I've been trying to use autofocus more when I record myself because it seems to be the only way to make sure that I'm actually in focus since I do this all on my own. In theory, anyway. I can't recall if I did or didn't have it on. The other possibility is just that since I had also set it on auto-everything that it decided that it was dark enough that it needed to crank up the ISO to the point that the whole image is fuzzy. Either way... not ideal.
The other disaster was that the next portion of the video was supposed to be an overview of all of the projects that I'll be doing for Chapterhouse in the coming weeks (cause there are a bunch). Apparently, I just wasn't feeling it at the time because as I was listening to myself in editing my only reaction was "I can't let actual humans listen to me drone on like this". So that got cut.
To top it all off, I was so into getting the painting done I ended up doing 0 wip video. None. WIth that in mind I decided to cram as much into the wrap-up as I could. And then, for some reason, the photos aren't sharp either. No idea why not. ::sigh::
Anyway, I'm going to do more notes like this in the future as a way of breaking down what I thought I did right and wrong on my videos. This seemed like a good place to start since it all seemed to go so horribly wrong.
I'm going to try to spend more quality time with my camera so I can get more familiar with it so these kinds of things don't happen in the future - well, the camera-related things, anyway.
