A few weeks ago, I posted this card and promised to do a video tutorial on how I made the Dragonfly embellishment. Here’s a close-up:
It’s so darned difficult to photograph anything that sparkles. Turns out it’s difficult to capture on video as well! After what seems like hundreds of takes, I finally decided to just pull the trigger and post a video. I’m a bit of a novice at the video editing program I’m using, and the learning curve is pretty steep – at least for me. I will keep trying, though, and hopefully those rough edges will smooth out over time! During this video, I mentioned that I had other footage that better showed the sparkling effects, and I do. However, trying to splice that in proved too much for my pea brain to make happen, and so it ended up on the cutting room floor. If I can get the software to cooperate, I will do an updated post and let you know.
Thanks for watching – holler if you have any questions…
I’ve been on a quest to find a good overhead camera mount that would work in my studio set-up. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a tutorial to make one for relatively little $$ that seemed like it would work. Two problems – I didn’t have the tools to do it with and the way they showed the camera being mounted would have given me an upside-down video. Ugh! I showed the tutorial to my brother, Bill, and enlisted his help to create a customized version. Not only did he have the tools to work with, but he was able to engineer a solution to the upside-down problem! In just a couple of days, he had the whole thing built for me and let me tell you, it works like a charm!!
I gave the new addition a test run over the weekend and was able to produce my very first video tutorial for you! I am a neophyte at this stuff, and am still on a learning curve for the video editing program I’m using, but for a first effort, I think it turned out pretty good. So, without further adieu, here’s how to make this card…
