GreenStockings Podcast Episode 1

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , , , , , — GreenStockings Craft & Creative Events @ 7:53 AM

Hey you guys! I made a podcast!

I had such a blast making this first episode! It’s a little rough around the edges though, so please bear with me as I work to get the best image quality out of my camera. The things that I’ve learned so far are:

1. Set up the camera closer! I’m sorry that the sound isn’t the greatest – if you turn up your speakers you should be able to hear most of it, but it’s a little scratchy sounding, and I’m sorry that I sound like I’m mumbling a lot!
2. MORE LIGHT. I’m looking more than a little orange in this first episode, but I think a couple of extra desk lamps should make me look much more like my gorgeous self! (and get a better focus from the camera)
3. The batteries run out in the camera at almost exactly 25 minutes… so I get cut off in this first episode, I’ll know better for next time!

I am so looking forward to recording again next week.
