I have been putting this off for some time as I have been trying to make perfect videos from the off. I know nothing of cameras and videoing let alone audio and editing but have been trying to educate myself. I have recorded endless videos only to delete them because of their poor quality. I subscribed to numerous YouTube Video Influencer Channels looking for inside tips and tricks. What I have come to learn from these Influencers is that you will never get your video channel up and running if you wait to have everything perfect and professional before you start. That is unless you are a professional in this area of course. They recommend you just start with what you have, shoot some video, edit it to your best ability and then stick it up. The only way to improve and become professional is practice, practice, practice. They say it gets easier as you go but to accept that your early productions will probably be cringe-worthy when you look back on them in the future. You just have to start somewhere and that’s it.
Part of my panic was that I was trying to do full videos with me in them and I discovered I just didn’t have the confidence or charisma to pull it off at this stage. So I beat myself up time and time again, declaring that I looked awful on camera and deleted, deleted, deleted. Then I decided to break myself in less painfully. I realised I didn’t have to appear or star in the video. I could confine it to just my hands and cards etc. This let me off the hook to a certain extent and I took the advice of Video Influencers and ran off a few videos, edited to the best of my current ability and uploaded them to YouTube. I was secretly terrified as you know what it is like when you hear or see yourself on video.
Anyway, there are four videos now online and even though they are not the best quality, I have made a start and hopefully can only improve from here on. I also hope to lose my camera shyness and get out in front of it, but I don’t want to put myself under the stress and pressure of it right now. I am quite extrovert, have worked with the public for years, taught tarot classes and given talks to large crowds so I never expected to feel so terrified and self-conscious.
So taking a deep breath, here are links to these virgin videos. I think I will go into hiding for a while. They are my very first videos and would be delighted to get a few subscribers and Likes on board to make me look less like the new girl on the block. And please share the videos with those you think would be interested.
I plan to record a whole series of videos covering as many areas as possible. Some will be short videos while others longer. Please let me know if there are any topics in tarot you would like me to feature.
