Hello! My name is Cammy!

Hello folks and welcome back to my blog. This week I was handed a little camera by my teacher. She trusts me that I do not break it while it is in my possession, oh boy the responsibility. Anyways, so now I have time till the 27 December to try it out and I will make a little diary out of it( so original I know).

Day 1, 20 December 2006,

First took the camera out of its case. So far haven’t done much with it since I have to figure out how to get the display running. Manual isn’t helping much because it is written in all kinds of eastern or northern European languages except for English and German. Did a little exploring of the menu, but did not change anything since it would not help solving my initial problem.

Day 2, 21 December 2006,

Did nothing because I was busy 😀

Day 3, 22 December,

Finally got around to figure out how to project the picture on the exterior display. This discovery lead to hours of me filming myself. I Found out that it is actually possible (for me at least) to simulate zooming by slowly moving the camera closer or further away. Furthermore I have still refrained from actually recording anything because it did not appear to me as worthy of being taped.

Day 7, 26 December,

As you may have guessed nothing much happened over the past few days. On the other hand I came up with a neat little idea of what to do as my first vlog entry. How that will work out in the end remains to be seen. Nevertheless I plan to post it on YouTube and hopefully get many reactions, including the infamous “G*y” one :D. On a side note I am currently experimenting with various other movie editing programs but so far haven’t decided on one, oh well.

Day 8, 27 December 2006

Hoo boy, today I learned a lot more about the camera and vlogging in general. There are so many things to consider prior to creating a video; things like what do I wear? What do I use as a background? What kind of lighting? The whole surrounding needs to be prepared. Also you will want to make sure that there are no background noises et cetera. Another thing I realised during my first tryouts, is that it is recommendable to have a partner with you for the camera work. I found out that it is very hard to focus on two things at the same time, at least for me.

Anyways now that I have made my first little steps it is merely a matter of time before I post it. Should said event arise I will be glad to be of service with time and directions.

See y’all in the new year 😀
