Mission accomplished! I did it, guys! I shot my first recipe video! My first and probably my last (for awhile). That was brutal! Picture crawling on the kitchen floor, underneath my bulky tripod, (with a torn rotator cuff, by they way) trying to spiralize a damn potato. I was so sad when I went to edit and found my first clip completely blurry (so you won’t see me cutting off the ends of the potato), but I guess I can’t be too hard on myself for this being my first one! But really…can I just keep taking photos instead? Ha! Props to actual Youtubers and vloggers, though…they have it hard! I’m sure once you get into the swing of things it gets easier and if you had another person helping (that would be nice!). I may retake the beginning clip and I still need to add some music, but by next week, I shall unveil it!
It’s funny, because this time last year I said I’d work on a recipe video…well…one year later and we “kind of” have one! What a win! I knew it would eventually happen (as all things tend to do)! I have a short Friday Finisher for you this week, but that just works fine since there looks to be lovely sunny (warmer) weather to enjoy this weekend! Cheers!
