TIME LAPSE: SETTING UP A CAMERA AND CAPTURING YOUR LIFE, then sharing it with the world.
Part of the series: 6 Week Video Challenge
Together with a group of American food bloggers, photographers, and content creators we are testing new food video styles and productions, led by Brooke Lark.

When I told my family about the 1st-week challenge, my teenage son Liam commented:
"Great mom, a video of you sitting on the couch with your PC on your lap"
In fact, that is what I do 80% of the time: writing, editing, researching and promoting.
Very boring to watch even in a time-lapse video.
I cannot really show any fancy photography setups because I only have a Nikon 5000 , which I am still learning how to use, only 1 lens Nikon Nikkor prime lens 50 mm f/1.8, a simple tripod and a light set I bought on Amazon when I started blogging.
But I started this blog because I love cooking, so this is what I decided to show in my 1st Video.
How I make Seafood Paella on the Barbecue, and you can find the recipe in the link below:
What else I did in the 1st week:
As it was our first week, we had a lot of basic setups to do for our YouTube channel and brand:
- Set up our YouTube channel with all the photos, introduction, links, and playlists. Luckily most of which I have already.
BTW, have you subscribed?
- Decide which Fonts we will use for all our video and Carly Jayne came to our rescue by sharing some key information.
- Create an animated logo to add at the end of every video we make. I was carried away with this task and since my logo is the photo of the cyclist ant bicycling over my chilly peppers, I decided to make it move. I spent 2 days only on the logo animation. First creating the animated figure with the wheels turning. Then animate it with the name of the blog following behind. I hope the work will pay off.
I learnt so much in this first week, not only from the fantastic teacher, coach, and motivator Brooke Lark, but also from my team members.
There are some amazing creators in this group and we are all eager to learn, experiment and push our boundaries.
Week 2 challengee has already started.
Stay tuned, so much more to learn.
