My friend was having trouble keeping a consistent written blog, so I suggested vlogging instead because she already had an interest in film/camera work. She was a bit reluctant to get in front of camera, so I volunteered to try it out first so that she wouldn’t feel as silly. It was interesting to say the least.
She interviewed me as if we were meeting for the first time on camera. It was quite amusing seeing myself on video actually. Learned a couple things:
-I talk with my hands A LOT. So basically, I’ll fit right in with the Europeans who do the same according to my European friend.
-I talk with my eyes. Apparently. I had to agree once I saw it for myself. It’s strange: I make eye contact, but I also look every which way depending on what I say.
-I smile constantly. This isn’t new.
-My hair looks really nice today!
-I have a deep husky sort of voice as opposed to the high-pitched girly voice. I blame it partly due to my cold, but I actually don’t mind it so much.
The more I watch myself on camera, the more used to it I get and don’t mind it so much. Actually, I find watching myself quite entertaining. Later, I set up the tripod and rambled about Norway feelings for a bit. I can’t edit or post anything because I can’t connect my camera to my Mac for some reason (will fix that).
But yeah - it was an interesting experience. I’m thinking about having an occasional vlog post when I’m abroad just to keep blogging interesting (and to please those who just miss my face ;D). Hmm. I’ll think about it.
