To vlog or not to vlog
The answer is ‘maybe’. There already are some awesome vlogs out there, which raise the bar for me considerably. I’ve never considered myself to be a ‘video person’, if there’s such a thing. I do take photographs, but I’ve never felt like I was missing out on anything as far as recording video is concerned and I can’t claim I feel comfortable in front of a camera like many other vloggers seem to.
On the other hand, who’d I take drone footage for, just for myself? That seems like a waste of resources to me. What’s more, I’ve always believed in ‘practice makes perfect’ and a gut feeling tells me this would be no different, if I’m up for the challenge. I don’t consider myself a particularly talented person, what I’m good at is a result of ambition and repetition, and then some repetition. So yeah, I’m willing to give this a try.
So in addition to the drone I got a GoPro Hero6 action camera to complement the footage from the D850 (which can also record video) and the Mavic Pro. I’m currently evaluating screen recording software for post processing videos, too (as you can see in the YouTube video I’ll link further down in this post).
