You Tube | Cool Things You Can Do With Olympus Pen F

Wow, it’s been almost a year since I made a video for You Tube (you can hop straight to Cool Things You Can Do With Olympus Pen F here!). And although it’s been in the back of my mind as something I should probably do – most regular bloggers live with sporadic pangs of You Tube guilt “I really should be doing that too, egad!” – The thing is it’s no easy feat. As in filming and editing videos take time, and there’s always stuff you don’t know how to do…

I have a lot of respect for the You Tubers who are able to produce super slick, super engaging, action packed videos week in and week out. And I am definitely at fault for assuming that I would airily be able to fit these in. But here I go with a spring video talking about photography and my camera. There are some techy bits that show you a couple of the fun features (desaturating individual colours, movie clips and the retro mono mode) on the Olympus Pen F work but general chat too about when I first started getting into photography and the cameras I used, and what I love now – my camera journey I guess!
It’s possibly a bit longer than a typical You Tuber video, I think I could do with applying some editing to the chitchat but… next time! 😉 I’ve actually got a list of different possible topics for future videos, ranging from the natural beauty I use, to having a baby (!), making yoga a habit and how to interview people (pulling from my journalist background!). Hope those sound interesting, but if you have anything in particular you’d like to hear about let me know! In the meantime, in typical You Tube speak 😉 do subscribe and give me a thumbs up and would love a comment if you likey!

    1. Aw thanks Em! There’s so much to explain, must do a series of mini-videos! 🙂 x

  1. Hi.. I love your props display on this video. With the laptop displayed the time which is brilliant idea. And a vase of flowers some books..make the video scene very comfy and relax to watch.

    1. Oh thankyou lovely! Really nice to hear, yes, was thinking about set up and then just decided to do it at the kitchen table where I usually work! 🙂 x

      1. Like all your photos too..the colour scheme and the focal point of the subject make it look more interesting.. I like to take photo of the good food and coffee I had but I’m really bad on the table setting and setting up the scene I want. Trying to pick up some tips from some of your photos. Thanks for sharing some good tips. I’m using PL-7

        1. Scene setting takes a little practice and sometimes just moving things around 😉 for settings I tend to have on f4.5 or so so everything is more or less in focus 🙂 x

  2. You know I am always SO ‘into’ anything you share about the Pen F. This video was a great idea!

    I’m also really struck by your ‘nailed it’ no-makeup makeup look on the video, and the retro flip-clock screensaver you’re using! Any and all info would be appreciated. x

    1. Ah brill! Def have some more planned 🙂 And thankyou! Was worrying about undereye bags 😉 But maybe will do a video on the makeup I use. Google fliqlo for the screensaver xx
