Ahhhhh…. Greece. I still dream about its beauty. I’ve been back from my 1 month escapade for a little while now but I’ve been busy learning Adobe Premiere’s basics to put this little video up for you guys.
The lesson I have for you today is simple. Keep exploring means to develop your creativity and you’ll grow both personally and professionally. That’s what I’m doing right now with video and video editing. Like you guys stopping over here on YPS to pick up some tutorials and tips on photography, I’m hunting for the best video editing sites with my student cap on. I know that down the line, having fun with video will be great for my business but that’s not the main reason why I do it. I do it to explore new creative venues of expression.
If I look back on my life, I can go as far back to the age of 7 when I got my first musical instrument: a $10 plastic recorder. Man I loved that thing! In high school, I started writing poetry and lyrics. Then I tried my hands at oil painting throughout university. After that it was a guitar. And then photography, never thinking for 1 second when I purchased my Nikon Coolpix 4500 that it would define my professional life and, to a certain degree, my personal life.
You never know where your creativity will take you! So open that box and take that first step out of it!
You can see that I pulled all the stops in this montage. From video to stop motion to HDR stills. I really had fun doing all of this in Greece.
I hope you enjoy it! 🙂 And if you missed my iPhone photo montage of Greece, you can check it out here.
