    Audio wasn't terrible, but a new mic and a light box would definitely help, ot only gets better from here!

    A big thumb up for the video, altho it was quite afull but I think it can be easily fixed. First fix the focus get your hands on a camera that have manual focus(it does even exists apps for it) and altho not as important make a deeper depth of field so all is clear. Getting a backdrop is also good.
    A mic can be good but mostly it's practise you need sittning talking to your self feels wierd in the beginning and you can hear that.
    Disclamer: all of the abowe is meant to be healpfull and i totaly endorse your progect.

    I promise more mistakes and "sod it!"s

    Like I said, I definitely need to sort out a good mic, I may even film first and narrate later (things to try), as well as doing time capture (frame by frame)

    Thank you! It means a lot. :)

    As subtle as ever I see. :p

    Not at all, it's all down to this sort of help that I would like to make this series as instructive as possible. :)


    I have had a play around with the settings and have FINALLY found the mic volume and all the manual/auto functions (including the focus :rage:).

    Got a second video on the way! (it's still uploading).

    Just under 12 minutes, a lot learned still from this one, I hope no-one minds but I was thinking of taking a bit longer between this video and the next one as I really want to get some more time in practicing filming so you can actually see what my hands are doing (not to mention finding my go pro).

    Check back soon for the video (I will edit this post when I have a link for it).

    EDIT: Here it is.

    Informative and entertaining! I want more! But I won't be offended if you take the time off to practice filming until you have a product you're happy with. But I am definitely going to have this playing next time I am working with green stuff.

    Thanks Bowser!

    What I REALLY want to achieve is to get something where I can have my hands in shot sculpting as I go (without having to lean in, or reach round anything AND make sure the lighting stays consistent). I think the biggest difficulty is trying to zoom in to pick up all the detail (something I find I can't really get, even with 1080HD) and have enough room for my hands to show what I'm doing in the shot.

    Have you thought of using an overhead mirror like a cooking class? The camera can get closer to the mirror, and you just have to worry about keeping your hands in the mirror field of vision. Something on a stand at a 45 ° angle should work.

    That's the same bunch of problems I was having when I tried making tutorial videos, 1080 and all.

    That's a nifty idea, I might give that a go.

    Used to work in a grocery store that ran cooking classes to sell different products and they had a mirrors on legs above the countertop specifically so people could see what the instructor was doing with her hands. So I figured same principle may apply!
