Let’s go to the video…

The social media learning curve can be so sharp, that you meet up with your back end somewhere along the journey. Oh, I want all the bells and whistles when it comes to my social media pages and posts. My latest post madness is video. Now, I’m no videographer and I don’t have a child living in or near my house, so it’s all up to me to learn. Ugh!

So many options out there: do I shoot video with my digital video camera, my iPhone, my GoPro? What app do I use? iMovie, GoPro, Videoshop? and where do I get a manual for these tools that I can read? Yes, I want an actual physical manual that I can read and jot notes in (I’ve discovered that they barley exist anymore).

I’ve found that the best resource to answer all of these questions and then some is my good friend YouTube. You want to know how to change the battery in your GoPro, watch YouTube. You want the easiest way to edit video in iMovie, watch YouTube. You want to know how to shave a llama, yes, that is on YouTube also.

Today marked my first day on the video path. A little trial and error, and the realization that I have a whole lot left to learn. But, here it is my first video. 14 sec. of success:)
