Entry video anxiety...

So against my better judgement I decided to sign up for this year’s Master of Photography hosted by Sky Arts. You can read all about Master of Photography in my last blog post, which tells me that I definitely need to blog more.

With the amount of time I spend around cameras and photoshoot sets, you’d figure I wouldn’t be camera shy right? Wrong. As part of the application process I was required to film a 2 minute video explaining why I wanted to enter the competition and what I could bring to it.

I think I just spent the whole video talking about how much I love Europe and want to travel and take photos while I do it, I hope they don’t see my application as applying for a free holiday! BUT, I somewhat overcame a major anxiety of mine, which is talking to camera. I have wanted to vlog camera tutorials and the like for ages, and I feel like this might be the first step to that. After many cuts and reshoots I finished editing a video that I was quite happy with.

I don’t really know what the point of this post is, other than to say that sometimes you should just confront your anxieties and put yourself out there, and see what happens, who knows?
