When I finally worked up the nerve to record my first video and looked at the footage afterwards I nearly gave up. I nearly deleted everything and pretended I never wanted to video blog in the first place! But I do want to. And I want to get better.
My hope is that by having an intentional point of improvement and through my publicly evaluating each video, you’ll be able to follow along. And those of you who are also struggling with the balance of technical knowhow and feeling authentic on camera can adopt the process yourselves. And we can all learn and improve together.
My second video was even worse than the first. Shot in my living room, insufficiently prepared, with inadequate lighting and a mic set too low it won’t be hard to analyze this sucker and from there improve by leaps and bounds.
