ARE YOU COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?
To kick things off, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday and are looking forward to a great New Year! I’m in round two of Kodak’s Vlogger Challenge, and this week’s question is, “Are you comfortable in front of the camera?” If you read this blog, you probably know my answer (hint: YES). What about you? Are you comfortable in front of the camera? How important is this for vloggers? Let me know what you think in the comments, and watch the vlog for more on this and Eggs Benedict, New Years food traditions and answers to your questions.
EGGS BENEDICT WITH HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
Do you have a New Years Day food tradition? If you do, tell us what it is. If not, consider Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce. It’s creamy. It’s decadent. If only the rest of the year could be as creamy and decadent. Get the recipe here.
So we’ve had a little more time with the Play Touch HD video camera Kodak provided to shoot the vlog. Still very pleased with the results. We had slightly more challenging lighting conditions in this latest vlog, and the Play Touch performed better than expected in low light and in back light. The face recognition feature appears to help the camera auto-adjust to different lighting conditions. One interesting sidenote is the Play Touch does not have a front facing camera, so sadly I can’t say it’s ideal for vlogging.
