Learning New Skills: Video Editing

At the beginning of this week I had the hare-brained idea to start doing daily vlogs while I walk Radar in the mornings. I've called it Vlog & Walk the Dog.

Surprisingly, I've actually kept up so far. Today's vlog is later than usual going up because I wasn't able to edit immediately after filming like usual.

I thought this would be the best way to improve my filming and editing skills as fast as possible. I think its working, I've learned some new things so far this week. And I think getting out for a walk every single morning has gotten me good and awake and ready to do stuff when I get home. I think I've been more productive this week than in previous weeks.

Learning these new skills is great, and challenging myself is really fulfilling. But there is definitely a level of frustration at being a beginner at something. I know that a few years ago I was really slow with culling and editing photos from photoshoots. These days it doesn't take me long to get through a set of photos. I know that eventually I will improve my skills at filming, recording audio, and editing, and be able to achieve what I want more quickly. But for now, I'm pretty slow.

Anyway, cheers to learning new things and putting it out there into the world!
