28-Day Life Overhaul: Day 3

I didn’t realize vlogging can be so time-consuming. First, you film yourself. But that’s not all you do. You have to set everything up. I make sure the space is lit adequately with my soft box but I’m still learning how to do it. Then I set the camera and angle it right. I make sure to charge the batteries so I never run out of juice, and upload the video files on my laptop to make space on the SD card. Then there’s editing. But before I can do that, I have to convert the video files to .wav and audio to mp3. I don’t know if I’m doing it right. My videos, despite being taken from our nicer camera and no longer my phone, come out grainy and lackluster still. Then there’s adding the title pages, voice overs, and sound effects. It takes a few hours to finish one short video. All that hard work and I hope it’s worth it. I wish I could say that as long as I’m fine with it I won’t care if the quality isn’t good enough for other people because I do care. I want to present something good. But for now, this will have to do. I’ll learn as I go along as I’ve always done.
