Six weeks ago, the day of the shoot had arrived, and it began with a 3 hour train journey (at 5am!!) to London. I found myself walking in to a very bright, white studio in Shoreditch, East London – but not without getting lost first! It was a busy day with a lot of exciting things going on but the thing I was most looking forward to was meeting the other four bloggers that were involved; Sherin, Rebecca, Annie and Caroline. They were such a lovely group of girls, we were in our little blog bubble for the day and I felt right at ease, which is unusual if you know me in real life! You will usually find me flapping with nerves but this day was different, I was in good company. I should have known better than to worry, as they whole team were nothing but professional, yet easy going and super friendly.
Above is the video from the photo shoot, I didn’t know what to expect but I am so pleased with the outcome. It captures the fun and energetic rapport that was present throughout the day. I don’t normally do things like this but I’ve always thought that it’s nice to see another dimension to bloggers in video and see another aspect to their personality, that we don’t get to see though still imagery. Like I know that sometimes I can look moody in photos but really, I’m not! (Ok, maybe sometimes when I’m hungry!) I have always wanted to make short videos like this as an extension to my blog posts but I just don’t know where to begin! I’ve done short OOTD vids a few off my phone but the quality is not so good.
Can anyone recommend a camera that is best for filming footage? Is it called “footage”?! I have so much to learn. There are also some photos from the day to go with the video, which I will share with you soon, along with some party wear chit-chat. I need to go through all my images first and narrow down the shortlist! I hope you love the video as much as I do and I’d love to know what you think, please leave a comment with your thoughts!
