My first time EVER. I was waiting for my wife to finish her shopping and I just decided to switch the camera on and start vlogging. Of course I though everyone was watching but in truth, nobody cared. So I’m a happy camper. Big lesson. Check exposure and white balance.
This vlog is about setting direction as to where I want this channel to go. I googled on checklists and items to think about when starting a YouTube Channel and I came accross this article https://vloggingguides.com/how-to-start-a-vlog/
It gave me some things that I need to start thinking about including:
Step 1 – Choose Your Audience Step 2 – Invent Your Vlogging Brand Step 3 – Create Your Channel Art Step 4 – Plan your vlog content Step 5 – Get Comfortable On Camera Step 6 – Find Your First Subscribers Step 7 – Network and Collaborate
I don’t have answers to most of the things above so the next few days, weeks and months is about looking for these answers. There are a lot of technical issues with this video including: – framing and composition (my hands looks like its separate from my body) -multicam (I actually set a second camera so that I can experiment with a multicam setup. That failed miserably) – I wish the Panasonic FZ300 had a wider lens.
I think I may now need to switch to the Sony A7II with 16-35mm
The video also lacks: – a story – music – proper intro and outro – b-roll apart form the screenshot
The big plus though is I am pushing forward and gradually becoming more myself in front of the lens.
