I had a bit of a muck around trying to learn the ropes with my D90 DSLR using the video setting the other day. We have an older JVC video camera at home, and at work we have used Flip Cams, but my camera seems to be better quality. It also has something to do with the lens you use (so I have been told).
I had my first go the other day filming our cat Panini. It is a little tricky to manually focus on the object you are trying to film (moving cat) and work out the white balance and all that other camera lingo I am s.l.o.w.l.y learning. It is actually a pretty boring video and it took nearly 3 hours to upload to YouTube….
Yesterday I also created a movie of some students sharing what they love about our school and what their dream teacher is like. I am presenting this movie during my staff devotion tomorrow morning so the teachers can feel a bit inspired and also see their job from the perspective of the students. I wish I could post the video on here, but gotta watch the privacy and kids thing.
This weekend I am away with a girlfriend so will have more opportunities to practice! I’m sure she won’t mind 🙂
