On RICOH GR III, I’ve been shooting a lot of videos (1080p, 60fps) in high contrast black and white. This has been great, as it is another way to experience reality, create art, and to EXPAND my self-expression/outpression!
Photos, videos, animated GIF’s
Some scenes work better as photos, and some scenes work better as videos! Or you can create a hybrid– animated GIF (created from videos)
How to shoot videos
Honestly it seems that shooting video is quite intuitive:
Just shoot videos like photographs, except hold the composition and framing!
For myself it is fun to shoot videos, to capture extended movement.
Where to upload videos?
This is where things get tricky —
Where should we upload our videos to?
The simple solution is to upload your videos to YouTube and embed them into your own website or blog. Or take all your videos and stitch them together in iMovie.
For example I took all my RICOH GR III video files, and just dragged them into iMovie, and exported them as one video file, and uploaded it to YouTube. You can either keep it public, or ‘unlisted’ (anyone with access to the link can see it, but it won’t be publicly listed on your YouTube channel).
You can also host them on VideoPress, which is a paid WordPress Jetpack feature. The benefit is that you have more control over your videos, you can store them ‘full resolution’, and you can re-download them anytime. Not as sexy as YouTube videos, but you have more control.
Everything is a work in-progress
The simple goal:
Never stop expressing and outpressing your creative soul.
