During a move, I come across my Grandfather's Polaroid SX-70 Alpha2 SE and several boxes of film. What do I have to lose by seeing if this works? In part 1 of this two-part vlog, I provide a little history of the SX-70 and how it works.
Photo Adventure VLOG
In this video, I discuss my recent vlog attempts, why I mostly failed, and my path to vlog again.
One reason for my limited success recently is due to bad audio, complicated by relying on a Zoom H1 digital recorder to record the audio and then syncing with the video in post-production. Just one example, you are not going to get good audio if you plug the Rode Lavalier microphone into the H1's headphone jack.
This isn't just a gear review though, I do include a few outtakes from my recent vlogging attempts and even include some photographs at the end.
My current setup moving forward:
In this episode, I take my Triumph Bonneville, loaded with camera gear, to Shenandoah National Park. This was a test ride to work out the logistics of taking camera gear along for a ride and how I would secure the motorcycle gear in order to leave it while going off on a hike or spending the night on the trail.
I did manage to take one photograph during this trip, but you have to watch to the end in order to see it.
See the show notes for links to the gear I discuss in this video.
Episode 3 is a short video about photographing a special spot located in Oahu following a three-day corporate assignment.
In episode 2 of my photographic adventure VLOG, I try my best to make some photographs in Shenandoah National Park after a very challenging start.
Even when things don't go exactly as planned, it's best to keep shooting, or at a minimum remember that whatever else, you are still in a wonderful location.
