The whole garden versus photography thing has been a bit of a battle. Do I just show photography again since I’m getting back into it again, or do I stick with gardening and the house?
They have been on my mind quite a bit. In the end, I have come up with a solution, I think.
If you do actually watch my YouTube videos you will know that I am indeed getting back into photography again. I am loving it. Getting out again with the camera has been fantastic.
Without the added pressure of making money from art, I can just go and take photos of what I like and when I like. There is a freedom in it that I really enjoy.
I suppose when I was doing it as a business I felt I had to mainly do the photography that people would pay me for. Why would I waste time doing some things just for the fun of it? However, now, that is exactly what I do.
So you will start to see a lot more photography here. Now that “I have got my mojo back” as my friend Chris would say, it is what I want to do. This week I’ve been experimenting with timelapse photography again.
A few years ago I got a Syrp Genie Mini to use for timelapse. It pans the camera smoothly so you can get a nice motion. However, I didn’t really use it much. Then when I got the Fujifilm camera I couldn’t connect it because I didn’t have the right cord, well that changed last week.
I went down to Banyule Flats and did some timelapse photography. You can see what I did in my latest video on my YouTube channel, here is the link, Leanne Cole – Photographer. The video is called The Lapse of Time in Banyule, click the title to go directly to the video.
Oh, another thing, I got the new filter holder from Formatt Hitech and we take a quick look at it in the video as well.
So back to the garden
Because the YouTube channel was becoming all about photography I had to work out what to do with the garden. The solution was to keep them separate, in that world, the video world.
I discovered that I can use Vimeo for free and add the videos here for you to see. As long as they aren’t too long or too big. So I have tried doing my first one for you here. It is very short because not a lot has been happening out there, but things have started changing from one season to another.
Seriously this video was more to see if I could do it and how. Let me know what you think, please.
Onwards and upwards
I know I ask all the time what you want to see, but I rarely get any feedback. So if there is anything you would like me to do, either with the photography videos or with the gardening and house, then let me know. Let me a comment, I like those.
On a side note, all the images are part of the timelapses I did.
Let’s talk soon.
