Quarantine VLOG studio update!

in Threespeak - OLDlast year (edited)

Quarantine update, friends! As soon as it set in just how long this was going to be, I started thinking about my space before I was thinking about boxes of toilet paper and ramen noodles […I also had those things because I was a boy scout, and “always be prepared”]. Space was of paramount importance, though. Not only enough of it, but enjoying the space I was in. I’ve wanted to turn this boring office in my house in to a recording/streaming studio, and that’s exactly what I did.

Now that the infrastructure and knowledge of how to shoot it is in place, I’m going to start doing more recording and streaming. The hurdle was getting in front of the camera, but I’m finally at the “fuck it”, point, and no longer care if I hate my voice or the weird faces I may make while thinking. These journals are just a part of what’s to come. I’ll be doing these monthly, but now I can finally start teaching photography as well. My unique, dark pinup approach utilizing diegetic lighting alone.

In this first journal/VLOG, I talk a little about the recording space. What I wanted and what I definitely did not want. I’m currently writing a book. A fiction novel taking place in near future London. Very much a Fight Club-es breakdown of society between the haves and have nots. I’m going to be doing my first distance/FaceTime sessions next week and I have a much different approach than what I’ve seen other photographers trying. More to come, but thanks for staying in touch!

WOW. great to start vlogging now! I was expecting this. and it will be quite exciting to watch!.

Keep being you dude! You already seem comfortable on camera to me.
Your setup looks great, sultry as can be.
The idea with the FaceTime projector photos sounds very interesting. I look forward to seeing your first shots of that style inside of the old frames you mentioned.

That is a pretty sweet studio! It makes my downstairs office look pretty lame. In fact I have a video conference tonight and my wife was just down here asking to see what direction the camera would be facing so she could inspect the field of view!

your whole setup is just amazing and I dream of a place like this where I can live. Love the old and antique stuff do much ❤️💕🔥

I like your studio. It's not "right" by the book and you have raccoon eyes lightning and all but nevertheless it has that homy feel to it at the same time with a taste of steempunk.

But hey, the most important thing is you feel good in the setting and you are not national broadcaster reading fake news so i'm happy for you.

I am projecting my home studio in my head as well that i'll be building since i want to do some video content as well so it was nice to watch your experience as i prepare.

p.s. Any chance you have some "before" images you are comfortable sharing?
