Learning How to Edit Videos

March 05, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I have taken the plunge into the video world.  I am following the path of many YouTubers and making similar videos.  I have a lot to learn, but I learn fast and have already posted my first video where I do very little talking.  I plan on making more but due to full-time employment, it will probably be closer to once a month until I can be more efficient at my editing.

My first attempt at this was also my first time on some trails at the Fernald Preserve.  I look forward to going back and continue documenting some of the wildlife with my photography.  One drawback to this location is you must stay on the provided trails, so it may be difficult to find some angles that I would otherwise try if something didn't look right.

A little about my YouTube channel:

  • Right now it is dominated by my timelapse of several puzzles with no audio
  • I had several 2-minute tip videos, but they were pretty lame so I deleted them
  • For now, I am using my Hero 9 GoPro
  • I will likely start using my Canon 5D Mark IV for some things
  • I have a gimbal that I may use at times to improve overall stability

If you want to see what I have and follow my progress, here is my YouTube Channel.

Check out my latest video - I promise to do more and will be learning more as I go.

Here are two photos from my hike on the trails.  The first one is of a Starling (not my favorite bird), sitting on the wing of a bird statue at the welcome center.  The second is of a Red-Headed Woodpecker.  I have not seen the Red-Headed Woodpecker near my house, so I was pleased to have spotted four of them on this first hike on the trails.

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
