I know, I know. In this time and age it sounds as if I was living on another planet if I admit that I have never done a video before. I love photography, because I can take my time to compose the shot. I was afraid I would just blur the images if I ventured into video. An additional hindrance is the fact that I think my voice sounds like Daisy Duck on tape. Thinking what to say and catching the right images, trying to drop my camera and making sure unwanted people didn’t walk in front of my lens…it all seemed just too much!
Along came PPH (peopleperhour) and a chance to be featured as one of their travel bloggers. They require a lot of things: blogging about free lancing, photos of my travels and the place where I live and… video clips. So, it was either to pass on a good opportunity to get the glamour granny known in the UK, or to face the challenge. Of course, I chose the latter.
My friends graciously accepted to accompany me on my mission to make my first video. They came with me for courage and to be my models and off we went to a fabulous site near where we live: the Apollo Temple and Oracle in Didim. Famous for the remaining columns and the haunting images of the Medusa.
And here are the results of my first efforts. Four video clips. As I said: please don’t fall over laughing. However, comments and advice would be greatly appreciated.
