Vlog #9: A long way home.

Vlog #9: A long way home.

Here is your latest installment of my video blog. We are up to number nine. This week I share with you my travel plans – I think this is a record for for me. The longest actual flight time, as in time in the air, I have logged in one trip – and a few other little observations.

If the quality seems a tad different, it is because I did this one with the Fuji FinePix X100. I wanted to see if I could make a vlog post with it as it will be the only camera I take on this trip back home. It was a bear to focus without being able to use my monitor. It is really a two man operation when doing video of myself. I would love to be able to tether it to my Apple monitor or my computer.

This just in, PhotoShelter, the photographic gallery, storage and eCommerce site just featured me on their blog today. Check it out, it is titled, “Give The Gift Of Photography: Prints For Everyone On Your List“. Plus lightstalking.com list my article on The Photo Essay as one of the 16 Unmissable Travel Photography Resources for Photographers.

    I had a go at doing “one-man” video earlier this year.  I recorded some video guitar lessons many years ago and it would be cool to do that again.  But, it was too hard (for me) to do it alone.

    I was actually trying to get on the same Sing-Moscow-Houston route when flying to Oaxaca.  But, ended up going Sing-London-Mexico City, then catching a bus to Oaxaca. Of course, I used to do the near 24 hour Kangaroo route all the time when I lived in London.  The big one will be if we visit Chile in the near future – Sing-Sydney-Santiago.  Ouch!!!

    I enjoy listening to both your video blogs and podcasts, many thanks.

    I also have to say that I’m always impressed by the audio quality of whatever you produce as its very clear and sounds great.

    I’m a little late commenting on your “vlog”, but I think this is really great. I personally like watching a video on what is going on with you and your family. Hope everything is going well!
