I do that because I believe it’s possible. I don’t really… I don’t like to rest on the idea that people are just born artists, and that’s it. They wake up in the morning and they make brilliant work, I think it’s nonsense. If we look at every artist, every photographer, at their beginning stages, they stumbled. They made mistakes. Some of the learned a little more quickly than others, but there is a lot of information that can be absorbed and applied, regardless of what your subject matter is.
A bit of a lengthy watch, and I’m still making my way through it, but this quote from very early on in the video lets me know that I am in for some valuable information.
I love discovering useful and/or educational content that is well made. That’s why I was quite happy to discover about OliviaTech, a blog of Olivia Speranza, sharing her tips and tricks about audio, lighting, photography, and videography. This is my favourite kind of site to stumble upon, because you immediately learn a million things.
There’s an even better part: her video tutorials and reviews!
She has a collection of very professionally made videos on YouTube and Vimeo that educate us amateurs about different equipment and techniques. They’re short and they pack a lot of good, educational content.
Thanks Olivia, you’re doing great work!
