My first project video!

So, I spent some time yesterday shooting, editing and creating my first ever project video, made in a how-to style. I wanted to test out my new camera and microphone, but quickly found the microphone to not suit my needs. It was far too sensitive for my camera and environment, and picked up all sorts of static.

Here’s a link to the video, published on YouTube. Everything about this video is also me learning the stuff while doing it. I’ve never really sewn anything from a pattern, never used an external microphone, new camera, new lighting, never done voice over… It was a real fun experiment. Continue reading

Additions

I have been looking to add to my camera gear for a good while now. Having used my simple Canon Legria (something) as my one and only video camera, I wanted to add one more. This time, I wanted a camera that offered the ability of an external microphone. Of all the endless cameras I have looked at, only the high-end video cameras and some semi-high-end DSLR’s offered this. Stopped by one of my regular shops today, and I came across the Canon (I’m a huge canon fan) EOS M.  Continue reading

Zippered pouch v2.0

I decided to make a “new version” of the zippered pouch, simply because I felt I could do better. My camera setup isn’t 100% ready so I couldn’t record my latest attempt.

This is the finished pouch this time, and I do feel like this is heaps better than the first one. I went above and beyond on this one (spending far more time and effort than needed for a test). Continue reading

Recycling / Re-designing

Why throw away old clothes and fabrics? We’ve all got clothes, curtains and the likes we’re no longer using. Why throw all that away? One can of course give it away to charity, but think about it; In stead of giving- / throwing away, why not take the individual pieces “apart” and use for another project? This is of course only applicable if you’re into crafting, sewing, tailoring, etc. If you are, take a look in your closet and assess your wardrobe!

A shirt is no longer just a shirt, it’s cuffs, buttons, fabric, patterns, etc.
A dress is no longer just a dress, there are straps, buttons, zippers, etc…

You get the idea; There are so much more things, if we only start looking through with new eyes! Continue reading

YouTube

Let it be known: I spend an awful amount of time on YouTube. Mostly watching videos but also commenting and I also used to create videos for YouTube myself.

Guess what!! I’m making videos again. I’ll be working on writing a post here, for just about every video I make. I took a hiatus from creating videos early spring this year. I don’t know what happened, I just didn’t feel like making videos.
Now that I really have gotten the creating video spirit over me again. I found a huge interest in crating, which sparked the video interest again.

Stay tuned and subscribe to my channel to get the latest video as soon as I upload them.

Well, hello again!

Another blank period, where I haven’t posted anything. I have been super busy and also not felt like posting/writing anything… I have been so focused on woodworking for a very long time, not much else have “gone through” my screens. Just not anything I’ve thought was post-able. I think maybe I’ll start writing more even if…

A huge change for me!

Well, this is a bit of a weird change for me…
I have been a PC man ever since I started using computers. I am a trained computer tech, and worked as a systems admin for several years. However, after several years of working 24/7, I burned out and I’ve never worked professionally with computer or systems since.

I have never worked with Mac’s or Apple products professionally, and I have in fact never actually used their products. A year and a half ago, I borrowed an Ipad and used it for a while. I was so impressed with it I went out and bought my own. Continue reading
