Boondoggles

Riding north on Midwest Boulevard, I thought about good places to shoot a video. I recalled that woodsy spot on the mouth of Crutcho Creek. It was perfect. However, shooting a video with the big camera turned out to be a boodoggle. Okay, it was a pain in the ass — too much pain to be worth the results. It still takes the best still shots, particularly when using the tripod. However, I’m not doing videos that way.

So I’m going to start saving for a good used digital video camera. Meanwhile, I’m still going to use my iPhone to record these short worship chorus clips. I’ll craft a rig to let me stand my phone on the tripod and see if I can make it work better. Otherwise, it was a decent ride for exercise and fun.

So if you want to contribute, use my donation link to PayPal. Otherwise, pray with me as I try to find good places to do this stuff. Eventually I’ll try to record teaching videos, if it seems there is enough interest.
