How to VLOG – Beginners Guide

How to VLOG – Beginners Guide


– Hey guys, what is goin’ on? In this video, we’re
talking about how to vlog, the complete basics, and the
beginners guide to vlogging, and some important information, that you guys should know about, when you’re starting on
your vlogging journey. (upbeat fast-paced music) (upbeat fast-paced music) I know there’s a lot to
unpack in this video, so if there’s anything specific
that you’re looking for in the description bellow,
I’m gonna time code the different sections
that I’m talking about, shooting, editing, posting,
all that good stuff. Okay, so vlogging is
kind of an important part of the YouTube culture,
and it’s actually expanded beyond YouTube. A lot of people just in
general, are vlogging to connect with their audience. Vlogs are an important part
of businesses nowadays, it’s an important part of your brand. So to connect with your
audiences, vlogs allows you to step into your world,
and give your audience a kind of behind-the-scenes
look at you, and your life. Now, with that said, not
everyone’s gonna be vlogging and doing the whole daily vlogging thing. I think that’s a little bit crazy, because it’s so much work
to do a vlog every day, unless you are a specific daily vlogger. I’ve had a lot of people
recently, ask me about how to vlog, and how to
create engaging vlogs. So that’s why I’m putting
this video together, to help my friends out,
and to help all of you out, so that you can create better content. Okay, let’s get into the gear. That is the first section, the tools. These are the things that you
need, to create your vlog. And it’s very core,
you just need a camera. ‘Cause if you can tell a compelling story, or give someone some insight
into you as a person, it doesn’t matter the
tools you’re doing it with. However, you’ve gonna wanna
progress, you’re gonna want to get better tools, you’re
gonna wanna get better cameras, microphones, all that,
as you get more and more into vlogging. So the essentials are a camera. And beyond the camera,
a stick or a tripod, to hold the camera, and a microphone, to capture better audio. At the very basic, that
is the vloggers setup, and that is the essentials that you need. Now personally, depending
on the situation, I’ve had different variations of this. Sometimes I just use a camera by itself, but that’s just because of
the situation that I’m in. One camera that’s really good
for vlogging, is the GoPro, it’s just an easy camera
to have in your pocket, and take it wherever you need to go. It’s also waterproof,
shockproof, all that good stuff. And it captures a decent
image that’s wide. So you can hold it out,
out away from your face, and you can get at that good shot, and there’s also some extra
features on the GoPro, which help out a lot. Another camera, which most
of you have in your pocket right now, is your phone. And your phone is an important tool, because you have it with
you, it’s there all the time, and it captures good video,
it captures good audio. So it’s a great camera to start with, to learn how to vlog, and to do all that. But if you want to step it
up, and you wanna actually get better at vlogging,
you’re gonna wanna use a bigger camera, with a microphone. Personally, I use the Panasonic
GH5, it’s an awesome camera. Before this, I was using the GH4. I’ve also use Sony A6500, A6300. I like to have a smaller camera, something that’s not
super heavy, but something that I can also bring a microphone into. And the microphone that I
use, is the Rode VideoMic Pro. This thing is awesome,
it’s a great microphone, to get good sound out of doing vlogs, and doing videos on the go. And the last piece is the stick. A lot of people use like a JOBY Tripod, one of those bendy tripods,
I did that for awhile. I actually like a smaller
footprint, so I found a little mini tripod. It works well, it allows
me to set the camera down, still have that tripod
shot, but then also, I can hold it as a stick,
and it’s not as big as the JOBY. So links to all of the equipment
that I’m talking about, in this video, are down
in the description. If you wanna check out the
exact tools that I use, then you can get a sense
of the cameras I’m using to create my vlogs. Like I said earlier, at it’s very core, you just need a camera, and
then from there, a stick and a microphone, and that
is your basic vlogging kit. And one more thing, about
the camera that you’re using, you just gotta use the
camera that makes sense, in the situation that you’re filming. So if we were doing
something like river rafting, we’re gonna be just using the GoPro, because it’s waterproof,
it’s easy to have on me, I attach it to my helmet,
attach it to a stick. And then I can pull it
off, and also flog with it. So if you’re in a situation where you don’t want
to destroy your camera, because you’re in water,
snow, who knows what it is, you’re just in a
situation where, you know, holding a bigger camera with a microphone doesn’t make sense, it’s not a big deal, just use a smaller camera,
something that works for the situation. But, if you do have the bigger setup, you’re gonna wanna use
that as much as possible, because you want to get the
best footage you can possible, no matter what situation you’re shooting. So if you have a GH5, with
a microphone and a stick, use that as much as possible,
and then change over to things the GoPro or the phone,
depending on the situation. Okay, let’s get into shooting. This is the fun part, this
is shooting all the content, going and doing the adventure,
exploring and capturing it. But there’s a lot more to
shooting, than just going out and just going for it, and
just shooting every little bit about your day. No one cares about your day. I’m just gonna put it out there. Nobody really cares,
because a vlog at it’s core is not just a follow me along,
and see what I do in a day. Sometimes those are interesting, if you’re really interested in
the person as an individual, but a lot of times, vlogs need to be more than just following someone around. When you follow someone around,
that’s a really boring vlog, and that’s what a lot of
people do, when they first start shooting vlogs,
because they think that that’s what vlog is. A vlog is just following
someone on their day, do-do-do do-do-do, this is so cool, look I’m eating breakfast,
I’m shaving my face, I’m gonna go down to the store today. Like that kind of
vlogging is really boring, unless you have a big
following, and a lot of people that are actively engaged
with you, as a person. It someone likes you,
then they’re gonna wanna watch your vlog. But if somebody doesn’t know
you, and they stumble upon that they’re gonna have no interest,
and they’re gonna click off. So to shoot an interesting
vlog, you’re gonna need to have a story, you’re gonna have to
have a journey of some sort, or you’re gonna have to be
funny, or be going to an event. Like there’s gotta be some sort of story that goes throughout your day. And you gotta think of it as a film. As Casey Neistat said,
when he started vlogging, he’s gonna make a film
every day, not a vlog. And that’s the whole thing,
you gotta treat it as a film. When you’re shooting a
film, you have a story, you have a beginning,
a middle, and an end, and you tell your story through a plot. And a plot could be a hero’s
journey, it could be a quest, it could be a tragedy,
like there’s different ways to think about story, and story structure. When I’m shooting my vlogs, a lot of times when we’re traveling, I’m
just going on a journey, so I’m taking someone
along on the journey. And when I’m thinking about
it, I’m not gonna vlog unless there is a trajectory
from like, I’m starting here, I’m ending here, I wanna
take people on this journey, to see what it is that I’m doing. So if I’m in Thailand, and I’m
gonna go see the elephants, my journey is to meet the
elephants, do the experience, and see the bigger picture of elephants, by the end of the entire vlog. And that’s what I did with the
vlog, when I was in Thailand. I wanted to talk about the
bigger issues with elephants as a whole, and I wanna
show a proper interaction, if you are a tourist that
is going to Thailand. There is some planning,
and there is some thought that goes in, before you even
start rolling the cameras. You just gotta think about, what it is that you’re gonna wanna vlog
about, and try to come up with a bigger overall story,
to fit your daily vlog. And with that, you’re
gonna wanna be able to have a beginning, a middle, and an end, and you’re gonna wanna
do the basics of story, that you see in films, and you
see in every book out there. You don’t wanna just start
shooting, and just think that you’re gonna have a
cool, interesting vlog, just by spraying the
camera everywhere you go. Okay, a couple more points. Besides the whole story
aspect of shooting a vlog, is the main aspect of
a vlog, is basically, engaging with you as a creator. So you’re gonna be filming
yourself, you’re gonna be, that’s why you have a stick,
and that’s why you have a microphone, and a camera
just pointing at you. As you’re filming yourself,
you’re giving your journey, you’re experience, to your viewers. So you’ll turn the camera
around, and obviously, show everything else that’s
going on, but at it’s core, you’re filming yourself. So you’re gonna either hold
the camera out in front of you, or you’re gonna set the
camera down, and walk up to the camera, and talk to the camera. You just gotta find creative
ways to talk to the camera, and be an engaged creator
with your audience. You’re having a
conversation back and forth. Find ways to talk to your
audience, and don’t just make them a passenger on the train of
your journey through the day, or whatever it is that you’re filming. You wanna be actively engaged with them. You wanna have conversations,
and you wanna talk to them. Alright, so we picked up our
friends, Autumn and Katie, they are back there. They’ll say hello in a bit,
because they wanna shower, but I have Katie’s bag. She had a little bit of an accident. She flipped her motorcycle,
like two days ago, yesterday, she’s pretty beat up. Okay, another key point about shooting, is don’t be afraid to vlog. If you’re out in public,
people are gonna look at you, it’s just, it is what it is. You’re holding a camera
in front of your face, and you’re pointing at yourself. People know what vloggers are nowadays. Like you’ll be in situations,
where people will be like, “Oh, it’s a vlogger”. Just don’t be afraid. And that’s like a key thing here. When you’re being a
vlogger, you can’t be afraid to shoot things, you just
gotta shoot everything, and if something happens,
somethings happens. If someone tells you
to put down the camera, well, put down the camera,
but don’t be afraid to put up the camera,
and shoot to begin with. I’ve been shutdown plenty of times, where I’ve been shooting in
situations where, you know, they just didn’t want cameras there. So I was in an airport
in Belize or Mexico, and I was shooting
myself talking to camera, I’ve definitely have had
security tap me on the shoulder and be like, “You gotta put this away, “what are you filming?”,
and start questioning me. I gotta get outta here, so
I’m for sure getting out. So I’m headed over to the other
airline, a little bit later, at City Airport all day. But, you know, it is, what it is, I’m gonna get home tonight. I’m not playing around, that was a mess. United, get someone
else to (garbled words). But it just is, what it
is, you just gotta own it, and you just gotta go for it. Stop caring about what other people think, because as a vlogger, you’re
putting your content out there for other people to look at you, so you’re gonna have to just not care, at all about other people. Is really own it, really
believe in what you’re doing, is something that is entertaining,
and enjoyable to watch for your viewers. Okay, some vloggers
don’t do a lot of this, but I personally think
this is a key ingredient, and that is, capture a ton of B-roll, and make it cool, cinematic B-roll. So I’ve done a ton of
videos on my channel, about how to get cinematic footage. Watch those, if you’re
looking for ideas on ways to get cinematic footage. But for me, what I do, is I capture a ton of slow-motion footage,
a capture a ton of drone shots a ton of just B-roll, in general. And if you wanna know
more, about what B-roll is, I’ll put a link in the description below, to another video of mine,
about the importance of B-roll. But B-Roll is essentially the stuff that ties everything together. So you have your story, you
have all your talking bits of you, and now you’re
gonna want the B-roll, to make your project more exciting, to make your video more engaging, to see the location that you’re
at, to just make the vlog a more exciting thing to watch. So, lot’s of B-roll,
shoot a lot or B-roll. Just shoot everything that you’re doing, and shoot B-roll around it,
come up with new cinematic, creative ways, to tell
the story, and not just talking to camera all the time. And going along with this, is just shoot more than you think. So this is also your storyline,
and also you’re B-roll, everything, just shoot
more than you think. Because when you get into
editing, you’ll realize that you use a lot more
footage than you think, to edit a vlog. I’ve shot multiple days,
and trimmed it down to a five-minute vlog,
because the storyline only fit the five minutes
that I actually captured, within those days. Even though a shot a ton of footage. And so, that brings us into editing. So now, let’s get into
editing, and let’s talk about how you edit a vlog,
so it’s more impactful, and so that your viewers want to watch it. You shot all this awesome
content, you have a idea and a storyline, that
you want to put together, create a vlog for your viewers. So the key to start any
edit process, with a vlog, or a film, or anything that
you’re doing in general, is that you just need
to know your footage. So before you even start
cutting, bring all your footage into your software. I use Final Cut X. And what I do, is I scrub
through all my footage, just to see what I’ve
shot, to see all the things that I’ve captured throughout
my day, or throughout my week, whatever it is that I’m vlogging about, just so I know all the footage I have. So if there is major gaps, if there is something I didn’t even
remember that I shot, I know about it. So when I start editing,
it makes it a lot easier, to be like, yes, I have
that, I’m gonna put that in the edit, or I gotta
figure out a creative way to jump from this to this. And now, it goes into the
second part, which is editing. And editing is fairly easy. Most vlogs are beginning to
end, and the way you shoot, is in the way you edit. So you’re starting at the
beginning of your day, and you’re ending at the end of your day. So it’s very easy to edit a vlog. Me, when I use Final Cut,
because of the magnetic timeline, I’ll take all the footage,
and literally drop it into the timeline, and just
start at the beginning, and work my way through. And that’s because, everything
is basically time of day, starts at the beginning,
and it ends at the end, like I was saying. I’m able to just drop
it all on the timeline, and just start working
through, and cutting it all up. It makes it go really fast,
and I can cut my vlogs in like an hour, or
two hours, depending on what the situation was. Obviously, some vlogs
take a lot more effort, but some of the more basic ones, I can chop them up super quick, by just dropping all the
footage into the timeline, and just going for it. An important thing to realize, when you’re editing your
footage, is this concept I learned way back in college, one of my professors taught me this. He said, “Kill your babies”, which is a really horrible thing to say. It’s one of the things that
will destroy a project, because people spend
all this time and effort to get these awesome shots. Well, if they don’t fit the story, if they don’t fit the vlog, then you just need to take them out. And it’s one of those things. Because you’re shooting,
editing, and doing everything, you can’t put weight on
shots, just because of how long, or how complex the shot was, when you were on set shooting,
or out in your day shooting. You have to think about the project from a different standpoint,
and when you’re editing, you just need to look at
the footage objectively. And that’s the key, is if
that shot maybe took two hours to do this cool time lapse,
and it has all this movement, but it doesn’t fit the video at all, you’re gonna just have to take it out. And you’re not gonna have
to get emotional about it. And that’s one of the things
about filmmaking that’s tough, and one of the hardest
things when you’re shooting and editing your own content,
is that you are removing a ton of stuff, that you
put time and effort into, and you know that this shot
is so epic, and so cool. But if it doesn’t fit the
storyline, if it doesn’t fit the overall thing that
you’re doing with your vlog, then you just gotta cut it out completely. And it’s tough, but it’s
something that you just gotta do. And then one last tip,
when you’re editing, just always be on the lookout for a hook. And a hook is, basically,
a really interesting 10 to 15 second piece,
within your entire vlog, that will get your viewers
attentions, to keep watching. And that hook, you’ll put at
the beginning of your vlog, whether it’s a sentence that someone said, or an action, where like
you’re falling off a cliff into a water, like something
where people are like, I wanna know more of that, what’s gonna happen, what’s going on? You’re basically setting up
the video, so that people are like, I want to see
what happened with that. – You’re gonna take that chicken, and you’re gonna blow as hard as possible, and you’re gonna get as
close as possible now. I want you to get closer. Closer. Much closer. A little closer. Now closer. – Get in there! – Blow! – Drop that chicken! – So it could be somewhere,
anywhere in your vlog, and it’s basically just
a moment, or an idea, that captures your viewers attention. And that is an important part of a vlog, because it gets the people
in, then they watch your vlog, you have your beginning, middle, and end, you tell your story. And that’s how you keep
people on your channel, and get them to subscribe. Alright, let’s go over the final touches, and this is the upload process. Now you have a awesome vlog,
everything’s done with it, you’re like ready to share this. Personally, I just put
all my vlogs on YouTube. Other people will use
other social media outlets, but we’re talking YouTube here. What you’re gonna want to do,
is create a compelling title, and a compelling thumbnail, so
that people want to click it. Because people, if they don’t even have that compelling element,
of a thumbnail and a title, they’re not gonna click on your video. So a good way to do this,
is look a bunch of vloggers, and just look at the different styles in which they do their thumbnail,
and they do their titles. And think of ways that
you could do your title and your thumbnail, so
that someone will click on your video. But on the other side
of it, you don’t want to be click bait, where you
have some obnoxious thumbnail, or obnoxious title,
that someone clicks on, and the video has nothing
to do with what that is. You gotta be engaging, but
you can’t be click baby. So another good tool,
that I use is Tube Buddy, it’s a Chrome extension,
and it allows you to give a lot of analytics, and a
lot of different things, when you’re uploading your video. So it’s a great tool to use, for sure, and I’ve put a link in
the description below, so you can check that out. But I use it all the time, to
figure out key words, titles, to just get a general sense
of how my past titles, and my past icons, and things
like that, are working, so that as I move forward,
and shoot more vlogs, I can create more engaging
thumbnails, and titles, and keywords, and tags, and descriptions, so that people click on my videos, and stay actively engaged,
and become a subscriber, and someone who actually follows
my content on the regular. One more thing, is that once you post, you don’t wanna just let your video die. You wanna share it, if you
have other social networks, that could get more eyeballs on the video. So if you just post it on YouTube, you don’t wanna just let it die there. You want to reach out to
your Instagram followers, or your Facebook followers, and say, “Hey, check out my video!”. Just getting more eyeballs
on your video, as a whole, is gonna help get it more
attention, and hopefully, make the algorithm put
your video in other places. And that’s what’s happened
with some of my videos in the past, you know, I’ve
posted ’em in different places, I’ve posted things on
Reddit, or Facebook Groups, for stuff that makes
sense, and people will actively engage with that, and I’ve driven a lot of followers from
say, a Reddit post, where it fits with whatever
Reddit that I’m posting it in. So think of different ways that you can get more eyeballs on your video, that are outside of where you posted it. Okay, and let’s go over my final thoughts. So I’ve done almost 200
vlogs, up until now. I started out doing daily
vlogs, because I thought I wanted to do the whole
daily vlogging thing, and the daily vlogging thing
is tough, and it’s hard. And like I said, unless you can come up with a unique film everyday, daily vlogging does not make sense at all, and it’s really hard to
do, and it puts a strain on everything in your life. You look at some of
these big daily vloggers, and they only do it for so
long, before they crack, before something major happens,
before they do something that’s just really ridiculous and dumb, and they just completely
are oblivious to it, because they’re so wrapped in
this world of daily vlogging. However, I think that
all of us, as filmmakers, can benefit from doing a
period of daily vlogging. Because putting that pressure on yourself, to create a film everyday,
gets you to be more creative, and gets you ways to create new stories, out of basically nothing. As a filmmaker, as a
YouTuber, I think everyone should try daily vlogging,
for a couple of weeks, maybe a month, and just go
for it, and see how you can create compelling stories,
when you’re pressured to do it day in, and day out. And that practice, is what
gives you the knowledge, so that when you’re creating
vlogs in the future, you create interesting vlogs, and not ones that are just boring, and dumb. Now, I’ve definitely created
my fair share of boring vlogs in the past. I’ve shot 200, which, in
the grand scheme of things, there’s other vloggers out
there, that have done thousands. For me, it started out
doing the daily thing. I started doing then just
travel, and now I’m realizing more and more, that it’s
events, it’s specific things that I’m gonna capture, and
that’s when I’m gonna vlog. I’m not gonna vlog all the time. There’s just no reason
to vlog all the time, it just doesn’t make sense for me. But, if I’m doing something
really cool, like for example, I was just in New Zealand,
and me and Rachel did some really awesome hikes. Well, I’m gonna vlog the
experience of that hike, so someone can come on
that journey with me, as I take on a mountain. And that’s a really interesting
vlog, and there obviously is a lot more story that goes into it. The main story is, obviously, the journey from the bottom of the hill, to the top, but there’s more that goes into it. So you have your micro-stories,
that go within each vlog. And that’s one last
thing, I wanna talk about, and touch on, is that you’re gonna have your big overall story, what
it is that your vlogging about. If you’re a comedy vlogger,
it might just be that you’re, you know, you’re just showing a bunch of different little skits,
or things like that, different things within the vlog itself. If you’re like me, and
you’re a travel vlogger, you’re gonna be doing an experience, and that is your overall story. But within every vlog, you’re gonna have little mini stories. So for example, when I was
in Belize with my buddy, bigger overall picture of the vlog was about scuba diving, and
learning how to scuba dive. But there were these micro-stores
that I told within it, and one of them was about the taco stands we found behind our hotel, and it was like an awesome local taco
stand, and I made a little mini story out of it. In all of your stories, no
matter if they’re the big, overarching story, or they’re
the micro-story within, they need to have a beginning,
a middle, and an end. And to do that, you just
need to be more vocal, and explain things on camera. And so, a lot of times, what I’ll do, is before I go into a
situation, I’ll explain everything that’s going on, like– Okay, so one of the guys in our hotel, told us that there’s some fabulous tacos right down the street. We’re on a taco run. And C.S. wore his special
shirt (dog yapping). What I’m doing, where I’m
going, what I expect to happen, just talk a lot about it. I’ll do the experience,
that’s you’re middle, and then at the end, I wrap
it up, and kinda sum it up, and talk about my experience,
or find some way to wrap it up what it is, that I just did. So these tacos are amazing! C.S., what’s your verdict? – Delicious! Definitely, when you travel,
it’s all about eating locally, eating from the local taco
stand, is much better than, you know, eating tacos from
the overpriced restaurant. Now you’re not always
gonna use this footage, but always having something
before, and something after the event that it is, that you’re doing, gives you the ability
in your post-production, to be able to cut a
beginning, middle, and end, if there’s not another way to cut it. I always setup stories,
and I always end ’em, even if I’m not gonna use
that footage in the edit. Something to think about, when
you’re going into situations, just set things up, do
your vlog, do whatever, and then wrap it up,
at the end of the day. I always do this, I
always try to sit down, and have a conversation with
you guys, as the viewers, about what just happened,
wrap up the day, say goodbye, do all that stuff. And you do that with each
situation that happens within your vlog, that could
be a story, and a key element to something that’s going on. And we are back in L.A.. What is up? So I’m sure you’re wondering
what happened with the drone, because that’s where I last
left you off, in Nicaragua. But, we got the drone
back, and it ended up being a bigger hassle than expected. You might use the footage, you might not, but it’s always good,
to have more footage, than to have less. Alright, guys, that was
a lot of information. This is everything that I’ve learned, over the past couple of
years, of shooting vlogs. And I hope that this
information will help you become a better vlogger, in
your future vlogging journey. Guys, if you haven’t

(Regina gasps) Look at that, it fits on there so well! – [Regina] It must be him, actually. – [Chad] It probably is him. – [Regina] I’m convinced. – I’m noticing something, Regina. Do you notice something about all of these characters right here? None of them have a– – [Regina] They’re Asian. – That, I guess, too. Asian, sure. But I was gonna say, no beard! – [Regina] Ooooooh! – Wait a second, PZ9, ever
since he changed his look, he’s been wearing this scarf. Maybe he wore that because
he shaved his beard off, and he doesn’t want us to know. But, wait a second, I’ve also seen people say that they think it might be Billy Bob, the plumber! – [Regina] Billy Bob? – Billy Bob? We do have a picture of Billy Bob. Here’s the one that Daniel drew. It’s not the best, but he does have a beard. – [Regina] Oh, the first
suspect with a beard! – Yes! I think there’s still one more suspect a lot of you have said: Policeman! But, I don’t have any
pictures of Policeman, so let’s just draw a quick one, okay? There. And, Policeman had a hat, right? – [Regina] He was actually very angry. Let me fix this. Okay, great. You know who else is also very angry? – PZ9. Not the best drawing, but the point is you guys know who I’m talking about. That’s all that matters. We should contact each
one of these people, and interrogate them. One of these people is either PZ9, or they gotta know PZ9’s name. – I think we should contact Dax. He used to work at project
Zorgo with me and PZ9. I’ll send Dax a text right now. – Okay, cool, let’s come
over here to the kitchen. – Come over, right now, Dax. Important Spy Ninja stuff. – Okay, Dax is going
to be here really soon. How do we make sure he’s
telling us the truth? – Lie detector test? – Yeah! Wait, I don’t know how to operate
a lie detector test. Do you? – No. Why don’t we pretend that
we’re using a real lie detector and that we’re lie detector experts– – And then he’ll tell the truth! – Yeah! – So, where’s the lie detector test? – I don’t know. – Oh shoot, I betcha
Daniel has it somewhere. – We have to improvise. – Yeah, let’s improvise. What do we got? There’s a scooter here. The cables! – This looks like, exactly
like Daniel’s lie detector. – So do we have to wear a
white shirt while we use this? – Daniel always wears a white shirt. – Yeah, why does he do that. I just heard knocking on the door! – We gotta make sure it’s Dax. – [Chad] Say your name. – Daxton. – [Chad] Daxton? – Or Dax, from FedEx. – [Chad] Come on in, Dax! – Oh, hey Dax! – [Chad] You’re just the
guy we were expecting. – Whoa, the safe house! Oh wow, it’s so much cooler in person. – Nice fanny pack! – [Chad] Hey, a spy essentials kit! – Yeah, my spy essentials kit! Can you sign it, Chad? And you too, Regin ah? – (laughs) Regin ah? – Regin ah. – Yeah, yeah, I’ll sign it. How about, after we play a little game with the lie detector! Go ahead and put your finger
through this loop, here. – Kind of looks like my
scooter charger. (laughs) – [Chad] Yeah, you know– – Yeah, it’s real though. – They’re similar items. – Where’s Danielle? I thought he’s the one that does these? – Oh, Daniel, you mean? He’s the lie detector expert, but you know, he told us a few things. – Cool. – So, Dax, PZ9 has our safe house address. I mean, I don’t want to make you feel bad, but PZ9 followed you to our safe house when you were delivering
those Lego packages. – I mean, you can’t fire me. (laughs) – That’s true, you’re not a Spy Ninja, but you want to be a Spy Ninja, don’t you? – I didn’t mean to! Oh man! – [Regina] That’s okay,
you can help us out now. – Yeah, yeah, yeah. As long as you tell us the truth now, that’ll make up for it. So, my first question is: Dax,
do you personally know PZ9? – Yeah, like he totally came up to me when I was delivering boxes. He told me to subscribe to his channel. So, I guess I do know
him personally. (laughs) – Did you subscribe to him? – Yeah, I did. – Will you pull out your
phone real quick here, Dax? Oh you keep it in your
spy ninja essentials kit. I’m gonna go to PZ9’s channel here, And, hm, yeah you are subscribed to him. You were telling the truth. – I subscribe to most
cool dudes, like you guys. Even you too, Regin ah. – Oh good, look at that, you are subscribed. – [Regina] Oh, a true fan! – [Chad] A true Spy Ninja. – Yeah, oh, high fives! – Here you can have this back. – But why are you subscribed to PZ9? – Yeah, he’s not a cool dude! He’s a bad guy! – Yeah, have you seen his videos? They’re all roasts on us! – It’s pretty funny, and it’s
unique and one of a kind. – Uh, Chad can you come help me over here, with the oven thingy? – I’ll get some pizza cooking here. – I can’t wait for pizza! – Wait, can we trust Dax, Chad? – I don’t know, he’s subscribed to PZ9. I don’t know, that makes
me question his loyalty. – Yeah, because PZ9, he’s
our biggest enemy right now! – I know, why would he subscribe to him? Let’s go ask him about it. Oh, yeah and the pizza, it’s almost ready. – Maybe, like 10 more minutes. – Since you are subscribed to PZ9, how do we know that you
won’t betray us, Dax? – I’m only subscribed to
PZ9, so I could, you know, do my Spy Ninja lookout skills. (laughs) – That makes sense. So you’re subscribed to PZ9 because you’re trying to help us! Yeah, yeah, oh the lie detector says, “true”, yes. – [Regina] Oh yes! – You’re telling the truth. – [Regina] Good job, Dax. – Well, of course. Scout’s honor. – Okay, Dax, really important here. Do you know PZ9’s real name? – You mean like “PZ9 The Best Fighter”? – I mean, that’s his, like, screen name. But, like, what’s his real name? – Because I was PZ4, my name’s Regina. – You were PZ420. Daxton. Regina though, not Regin ah. – Very sorry about it, Regin ah. (laughs) – [Regina] Dax! (Dax laughs harder) – Okay, Dax, back to the mission here. His real name, do you know his real name? – As an experienced package
deliverer from FedEx, I’m under obligations to not disclose any kind of information. But, it doesn’t say anything about, six letters in his name. – [Regina] (gasps) What? – Oh, oh man! – So, six letters in his name, Regina! Look Dax, Regina and I gotta get going. But it’s been a real pleasure. You passed this test, we’ll now sign your spy
ninja essentials kit. – [Regina] Oh yes! – Aw yeah, yeah! How do you spell Regin ah? – Regina! – Oh, yeah, sure. – Here you go! – Thank you so much Dax. I’m so glad you came over
on such short notice. You really helped us out here. We’ll see you soon, buddy. – I also want to get a
signature from Vy and Danielle. – By Daxton. – Am I a Spy Ninja yet? – [Chad] Of course! – Yeaaaaah! – He’s really happy. – But now we know that there’s
six letters in PZ9’s name! – Yeah, he totally just gave it away! – Yes! Definitely not Dax, because
he only has three letters. He’s only got three letters, Regina. – Did you not here him at the door? Dax’s real name is Daxton. – Oh. – [Regina] Six letters. – You’re right, it’s six letters. – He might be tricking us. – He might be. Well, how about the Policeman? I don’t think his name is “Police”. But still, don’t know his name. We can’t rule him out. Marlin. One, two, three, four, five, six. – [Regina] Is he PZ9? – [Chad] Put a little headband on him, it could be him! Guava juice, definitely more than six letters in his name, so. – [Regina] Good bye. – It’s not Guava Juice. Stove. He only has five letters in his name. – Wait! Oh my gosh! – What’d you do? Oh, well, Guava Juice, he can– – Stove is not his real name either! – What’s his real name. – Stoven, maybe? – Steven! One, two, three, four, five, six! – He’s our number one suspect. All of you Spy Ninjas kept
writing in the comments, “Stove, it’s Stove, it’s Stove!” – Yes, yes, we gotta get him on the phone, and see if it’s him. – Calling Stove right now. – Come on. – Hello? – Hey! Stove, how you been man? – Good! Just chilling, I just got done gaming. What’s up? – We’re just trying to get to know our friends a little bit better, so we thought we’d ask you some questions. – I’m down. – I think, Regina, you had a question. – Yeah, I see you have a very interesting bandana on right now. I’m getting really into bandanas. Can you show me a little? – Yeah, yeah, let’s see that bandana. – I mean, it’s just a normal bandana. I’ve been wearing this for a while. I don’t miss a day without it. It feels without wearing one, actually. – Oh, okay. – Oh, we’ve been playing this game do an evil laugh! – Oh yeah, show yours Chad. (maniacal laugh) (laughing) – You like that? – That’s pretty good! – Thanks, man, now let’s hear yours! – Oh, I don’t know if I
can compete with that, but yeah, if you ask, here it goes. (maniacal laugh) – Yeah. – Okay, that was kind
of a Santa Claus laugh. – Well, you gotta be a little, you know, cheerful with it, you know? Can’t be too mean. – Cheerful, okay, hm. Oh, you know, I’ve just been doing a lot of my Ninja training lately. You look like the type of guy who would be really good
at throwing some kicks and stuff like that. – Wow, I appreciate that. I’ve actually been
practicing a little bit. – Oh, well why don’t you
show us a little something? – Yeah! – All right, I mean, it’s
nothing too special, you know? Just a little bit of, you know, punching, a little– – Oh, oh, oh! – I’ve been working on this special move, just a little bit ago. – Oh, okay! – It’s not perfected yet. – Yeah, yeah, it looks like
you’re still learning that one. – I’ve also been taking
some drawing classes. It’s a new hobby of mine. Do you draw? – Yeah, I like drawing, I
like drawing and painting. You know, a little bit of both. – Can you draw something real quick? – Yeah, yeah! – What do you guys want me to draw? I’ve got everything ready. – Your favorite dog. – You guys are putting
me on the spot, but, hold on, are you guys ready? – We’re ready, let’s check this out. – All right, three, two one! (gasps) – Wow, that’s… That’s really good. That’s really something. – It’s got a little horn. – I was worried you wouldn’t
like it, but you know. – I love it. You know, after seeing that picture, I think I like you twice as much now as I did before seeing that picture. That was really good. I was kind of wondering, I know you’ve got a real name. How many letters is in
your real first name. – Six letters. – Six! That’s great. – That’s interesting news. – This has been a great call. I’m very glad, we’ve
learned a lot about you. – It’s always nice to
catch up with you guys. – See you later, Stove! – Bye, Stove! – Peace! – Regina, he has six letters in his name. – Yeah, that’s how many letters Dax said was in PZ9’s name! – But, did you see his dog drawing? (laughs) – Yes! – I feel like that’s not PZ9,
because he draws really good. Unless, he’s trying to trick us. – I think he’s tricking us! Because also, his Ninja moves
needed a little bit of help. – Maybe he was pretending
that he’s still learning. Hey look, let’s go over
to the wall here, huh? So, I kinda want to cross him out, and say he’s not PZ9, but I think I’m gonna leave him up here, just in case. We need a little more evidence
to prove that he’s not PZ9. Billy Bob. He’s got a lot of letters in his name. Way more than six. So, it’s not Billy Bob. But, he also used to
work with Project Zorgo, like you did Regina! – That’s true! I was on a mission with Dax and Billy Bob. – Okay, I know Billy
Bob’s plumbing service, I called him before when we
were at Daniel’s safe house. So, I’m gonna call him right here. He knows you, right? – Yeah, we used to be really
great buddies, back in the day. Hey, Billy Bob, remember me? It’s PZ4 here. – Oh, you’re the traitor. You’re the one that left Project Zorgo. – Yeah, I guess you’re right. But hey, we’re still friends, right? Like, no hard feelings. Maybe we could catch up and
eat some pizza together, like the good old days? – Some pizza? Ow! I reckon that anybody
who betrays Project Zorgo is no friend of mine. – Billy Bob, I thought we had
some great times together! – Back before you done
gone sold the true selves. – Chad, I don’t know what to do anymore, he doesn’t trust me. – Just ask him if he knows PZ9’s name. – Hey, Billy, do you know
PZ9’s name, by any chance? – I don’t think I’m obliged to give you that kind of information. You’re no friend of mine, PZ4. – You’re breaking my heart, Billy Bob! – I’m busy working on these pipes now. In case you got yourselves
a plumbing emergency, I reckon you don’t ever
call this line no more. – Oh man, he’s really mad at you Regina. Okay, bye. We didn’t get anything
valuable out of him at all. We need to figure out a way to, like, get some information out of him. I got an idea, Regina. Why don’t we dress up as PZ members, and then we’ll meet with him. A plumbing emergency or something, and then he’ll be obliged to tell us! All right, Regina, are
you ready to hacker up? – I’m ready! – Regina, why do you always
have to look up at the ceiling? You’re always looking
up when you wear a mask. – Back to my PZ4 days! It’s because the eye
holes aren’t big enough! – Oh, it doesn’t fit your face, huh? – Yeah. (laughs) – Okay, well hopefully
Billy Bob doesn’t notice. I’ll call and I’ll have him meet us, like a block away, and say, like, the fire hydrant is out or
something and he can come fix it. He’s good at that, let’s go! All right, Regina,
there’s the fire hydrant. Better hacker up, better put our masks on! – [Regina] He’s over there. – [Chad] He’s, he’s coming. – [Regina] Don’t forget to
do the salute when he comes. – [Chad] Oh yeah. He sure does walk weird, doesn’t he. – [Regina] Yeah, kind of like he has to use the bathroom all the time. – [Chad] Yeah! Billy Bob, see it’s broken. Couldn’t get any water out of this. – All right, I reckon I can. You know, you look gosh darn familiar. The way that mask just fits your face. – [Chad] Anyway, so you know, while you’re working
on that hydrant there, I got a question for ya. – Sure, well I got myself an answer. – We really dislike when
people betray Project Zorgo. – I share that sentiment. – PZ9 betrayed us, we need
to figure out his real name, and we thought that you might know something about his real name. – Have you ever gone on some missions with him or got to know him? Because we know your name, Billy Bob. – That’s my name! Don’t drum it out! – So, anyhow, PZ9’s name. What’s his real name? – After we were deployed on a mission, we went to go get some lunch, at what he said was one
of his favorite places, due to the fact that, that letter is in his namesake. – Wait, we know that PZ9’s favorite place to eat is McDonald’s. – So, you’re saying one of the letters in McDonald’s is in his real name? – Yes, those gosh darn golden arches! – So, his name has an
M in it, you’re saying? – Most likely. – Uh Re- I mean PZ24 and a half, let’s get back to our mission here. – Oh, yeah, yeah. – See you later, Billy Bob. – If you guys need any more
help with the plumbing, I reckon just call PZ88, the best plumber. – Okay, his name has an M in it, Regina! – Six letters and an M! – Let’s get out of these hacker
clothes and figure this out. Oh, so glad to be out
of those hacker clothes. – So hot! – [Chad] Policeman? – We still don’t know. – [Chad] Don’t know his name. – Oh! – [Chad] So, it’s definitely not Dax. – Dax is in the clear. – Marlin? – Definitely an M, and definitely
six letters in his name. – I’m suspicious of you, boy! – What do you guys think? Do you think it’s Marlin? If so, leave a comment down below. Let’s keep moving on here. What do we got next? – There’s no M. – Gosh, I thought for sure it was Stove, because he’s got that headband. He looks similar to PZ9, but there’s no M in his name, so it can’t be him,
according to Billy Bob. – I’m still suspicious of Stove, but, half an X. – So, that narrows it down to The Policeman or Marlin, who could be PZ9. – I think it’s Marlin, for sure. – The last two letters
of PZ9’s name end in I-N. Marlin’s ends in I-N. – It all leads back to Marlin. – Okay, we got to tell
Vy and Daniel right away that it’s Marlin! – PZ9 is still on his way to
the Project Zorgo Headquarters. We don’t know how close he is! – Vy, Daniel, we figured out his name! It’s Marlin! – Marlin? Like, Mar, Mar, Marlin? – Go tell PZ9 right now. Stop him! – Tell him you know his name is Marlin, and then he won’t tell Project Zorgo our safe house address. – Oh, I can’t believe it! – Oh, let’s go confront him! – Yeah! – Good luck! – He’s right there. – This should be good. – Let’s call his name out now. – One, two, three! – Marlin! (suspenseful music) (gasps)

What and Why, not How

What and Why, not How


I like driving. Actually, I love driving. A lot of people love driving, but for many of them the reason is a little bit different They enjoy operating the car, maybe a manual stick Maybe they love getting into an old vintage car Or maybe they love a supercar, a sports car, a very new car like a Tesla. They love the technology, they love the sound system of the car and I understand that, I get that, I like that too I also love a good winding mountain road with a manual car But for me driving is something else, every time I’m driving, alone this is, is like meditation for me I am very focused when I drive, I have to focus on the road, the thoughts come and go sometimes I empty my mind, sometimes I’m thinking about what I’m trying to achieve on this photography trip if I’m going on one and then there is the other reason, that is going from point A to point B that’s the purpose of a car, the main purpose of transportation Having time to myself would be the what of driving Getting to my destination would be the why and the choice of car, the choice of the route, the road that I’m driving on that would be the how I find this to be a very good metaphor for photography, when we apply it to our cameras I am the first one to enjoy a good analogue, mechanic and tactile camera I enjoy the newest cameras as well and all the technology that they have packed I enjoy a good old manual lens, but I’m also very often impressed by the new autofocus features that these cameras and lenses are packing and yet that’s only the how I was going through my photography books the other day, and I stumbled upon a lot of photos that took my breath away, for the tenth time and not once, not even once, I stopped to think about how they made the photo I didn’t think about what camera were they using, what kind of aperture What was the ISO? What kind of film stock, were they pushing it, were they pulling it? All I was wondering about was about the what: what is that I’m looking at? What is this? And the why: why did the photographer feel like they needed to capture this scene? What is that they are trying to tell us? I know when I thrive the most with my photography is when I’m out there focusing 100% on the what and the why what is that I’m trying to capture? What do I have in front of me? And the why: am I photographing this because it feels good, it looks good, is it beautiful? Do I see it as something disturbing? What’s the story here? Is it worth capturing? It is when I think about the how, the lens I’m using, the camera I’m using, the aperture I’m using, the ISO I’m using, the film stock I’m using, am I pushing the film to 800, 1600? That the what and the why get pushed to the sides Don’t get me wrong, I am the first one to enjoy a Sunday morning ride in a beautiful car with a manual stick and I am the first one to enjoy that engine noise and all of that I am the first one to enjoy a really nice manual analog camera on my Sunday morning walk But when it comes to work, I don’t care how I get to work. I don’t care about the car I’m using During the last few months I’ve got to use a lot of cars: my own car, rental cars, my in-laws cars, and it takes a few miles to get used to them but once I got used to them, I stopped thinking about all those features that I was missing from previous cars and I stopped thinking about the new features that I was getting When it comes to photography the same thing happens, when it comes to get work done, to get images made, I don’t care about the camera I’m using If I’m using my Bronica, that’s great If I’m using my a6500, that’s great If I’m using my little RX100, that’s awesome If all I got is my phone, that’s totally fine as well The camera should go away, the camera should disappear and it should be all about the conversation that you yourself are having with the scene that you’re trying to capture The key here is to not get confused both things, the love for cameras and for cars, and make images or driving somewhere There is a time and space for both things And what we must do as photographers is to find that good balance Enjoy your car, no matter if that means driving it or just looking at it Enjoy your camera, no matter if you are just looking at it on a shelf or using it But most importantly, don’t forget the what and the why of driving and making images What do you photograph? Why do you do it? Those are the two questions that should always be in our minds It’s something that we should ask ourselves every time we go out there shooting What is that they are trying to tell us? It’s the third time you drive by

interest in photography. Yeah, I can take a better photo, finally got it and I

The snow killed 3 setups | FPV freestyle | VLOG | Cinematography | backwards flying


hey guys welcome back to anoter video some
of you might be wondering why I haven’t uploaded a video for over 10 days or
something and the reason for that is I’d got a bit of an accident with my
Onewheel. I’m driving my one wheel since last summer pretty much on a daily basis
and usually in the evenings so after I’ve published my last video I just
grabbed Onewheel and start riding my Onewheel just like I do every day basically,
and this time I was just having a bit too much fun I was going a bit faster
than I usually do so well anyway, there was some sort of pothole
in the road and I got in there with full speed lost my balance and set myself to
the ground pretty fast and I hit my head on the pavement
and that made me really dizzy and the skin on my head kind of
popped open a little bit so I went to the hospital, they glued it back together
and the doctor said to me that I probably have a minor concussion and I
was like yeah whatever so I went home went to bed and the next morning I woke
up and I was extremely dizzy so yeah and that dizziness was there for most part
of a week so there was not really much fun and wasn’t responsible for me to fly
my quad or drive my car for that matter so yeah anyway um this week I got
something in the mail I got a new video transmitter from folks here this is the
foxy cleartx2, this is basically the second version of a clearTX series I
also run the first version in one of my setups and I’m really happy about this video
transmitters so yeah and the timing could not be any better because the
TBS unify in this setup kind of died of me a well back so yeah
I’m always complaining about the TBS unify that it is getting hot and
all but now I’m thinking about it I’m running that vtx for about two
years now so it’s actually pretty good video transmitter I may say so, what I’m
gonna do now is install the foxeer videotransmitter,
grab my stuff and I think I’m going to the forest once
again, yeah I haven’t been there for a while so I’m kind of looking forward to a
fly there once again so yeah let me install my video transmitter so I arrived in forest and I brought my
buddy denniss along who standing in the back,
today I’m going to check out a new place in the forest
I checked Google Earth and I saw some potential places for me to fly usually
finally spots at Google Earth doesn’t work for me and it usually ends up in a
disappointment but well since I haven’t been in this part of the forest I
decided to give it to go it’s still pretty early in the morning too so we
will have plenty of time and yesterday it was snowing a bit so it’s a
bit white and that would give some pretty nice pictures I think yeah but
look at the spot behind me I don’t know if you could see it well but I’m walking
for a couple of minutes and I already found a potential place for me to fly
this isn’t the place I found in Google Earth though but yeah the trees aligned
pretty nice here but since as I said it’s still pretty early in the morning
so I keep walking a bit more and if I can’t find anything I will just fly a
couple of packs here and if this doesn’t work out there is a pretty awesome spot
pretty close by that I have flown a lot actually especially last summer and if
you are following my videos you definitely have seen this spot so we have walked for about two hours
now and we didn’t find any new spots to fly the spots that I found on Google
Earth turned out to be a very big disappointment so yeah as I kind of
expected that already because Pictures on Google Earth are most of times a couple
of years old and once you come to the place that whole area becomes well
crowded with little bushes or little trees basically so yeah so we decided to
go back to the place that we found pretty early on this morning. so yeah, this
is the spot behind me I haven’t flown I haven’t flow here
before so I don’t know what to expect from here but if I don’t like spot we’re
going to a spot that I’ve flown a lot actually so we’ll see how the day will
go so I just had my first flight and I
already crashed my quad and I believe I’m pretty far away so yeah I kind of
got stuck in one of those big pine trees and luckily I flipped out I believe so I
don’t you flipped out it’s sounds like you still up in the tree. No I don’t hope so we will see, kinda sucks. I kinda got disoriented while flying and I
believe it’s because of the snow and all yeah it has pretty white contrast in the
goggles and I flew pretty far away also my image got a little bit worse yeah
sucks so we are looking for my quad for a while now but I think I hear the quad
but I don’t see it it’s in a ditch, let’s turn off the quad first. My quad was filled up
with snow a bit and it’s all wet right now so I don’t think I dare to fly this
one right now so it’s kind of sucks yeah that was a very very short fly the only
20 seconds or something shit happens so I have one good setup
left which I want to fly with so yeah think I need to take it a bit easier yes
although I did not really fly that hard I think it was just some bad luck and I crashed again in the snow luckily
this time it wasn’t that hard but yeah that’s the biggest downside of flying
and snow every time to crash than the whole setup is wet so I don’t hope my
whole setup is soaking but right now yeah days like this I really do not like yeah I’m searching for like 15 minutes
or something and still no sign of my quad
let’s arm it hey yeah believe I hear it yes think it is somewhere over here yeah I found it, here it is
on a piece of scraggle destroyed the frame bit, this is new..
yeah this should not happen oh yeah that’s because of the fuck up
didn’t ya factory who did produced the frame kind of messed up part of
where the camera of the fpv antenna is going.. that explains a lot..
so, yeah, trying to fix that but first I’m going to another location. so we
arrived at the other spot, the spot behind me, if you are watching my videos for a while
you definitely have seen this spot coming by a couple of times yeah was I must say I’m really really
exhausted right now, we have walked for hours and hours on end yeah, so first
I’m going to take a little break and do some flying.
I did manage to fix my frame by the way it was actually pretty easy fix nothing
was broken or anything I stopped flying here and that’s because
all of my three setups are grounded it’s definitely not the best day of flying
today. I crashed time after time of time and usually at a spot like this, well, I can
fly around without crashing too often but oh man today I just kept slamming
myself into trees and one moment I get myself stuck in one of these trees also not
very fun to do but these days happen you know that’s it for this video guys if

CINEMATOGRAPHY | VLOG | FPV freestyle | Backwards flying | Who won the giveaway?


hey guys welcome back to another video. so today I’m in forest with my buddy David if you are watching my videos for a
while you definitely have seen David in my
videos before so but for the last six or seven weeks or so, I haven’t flown with him and that’s because his girlfriend was in town but a couple of days back he
put her on the plane back to her own homeland *laughing* I’m just fucking with him last year he met a girl overseas and
yeah he’s completely in love well anyway we are going to a pretty
awesome spot. last summer I flown here a couple of times but since autumn or
something a lot of those pine trees did lost their
needles or how you wanna call them, but I think now there’s a lot of snow on trees
I think that spot can look pretty awesome so but we need to walk pretty
big distance, we are walking for half an hour or something and I lost David yeah
well I did miss fly with the guy it’s always fun to fly with him yeah and he
took my advice too, he waterproofed one of his setups. usually
when flying with David in such conditions like this
he’s flying one pack and he destroy’s his quad and he can’t fly anymore so. oh
man we really need to walk pretty far this forest looks so nice in this time
of year. I haven’t been in this place for a while yeah. Looks pretty awesome. so we arrived at the spot and I must say, I’m a
bit disappointed right now, like in the whole forest there is a lot of snow
on trees, yeah except for the trees on the flying spot so. kinda sucks
luckily there is a lot of snow around it but, here on the other side through
these woods there’s a big open area and I believe it’s also spot so we are going
to check it out right now yeah now I’m looking at it it also doesn’t look they
are promising can’t have everything yeah yeah last summer I shot a timelaps over here but back then it looked much more
beautiful. do you like this spot? there are only a couple trees is in a very big
open area yeah and a lot of ghosts branches too it’s flyable I but I prefer the other
side that was a bit scary yeah
flying one pack and already I got stuck in a tree a little bit yeah luckily I
could flip it out but I believe it was really in the top of a tree. from the
sound of the motors I believe I broke at least one prop, that sucks. if more props are broken, I definitely go switch back to the GEPRC props must
say GEPRC props also break in situations like this yeah here this
damage is not too bad one prop is completely bend and another one
misses a blade. and also the ziptie of which I’m always mounting my receiver
antennas has snapped off so yeah I do not feel like fixing that right now
I’ll take my other setup to fly so um, what happend? flip out of the sky.
yeah like a desync. I do remember something this quad had desync issues. No that was an old quad. the one with the Tmotors
yeah make sense. so you need to walk? it sounded like somewhere over there. this
is always a very common sight while I’m flying with David. you know. just he
wandering off into the wilderness searching for his quad. so yeah I’m making a
bit of fun of him but to be honest I’ve made this walk a lot more today than he
did so yeah. he already found out why his quad fell out of the sky
yeah it’s just a props gone while flying it’s that’s so weird okay so in the meanwhile we are done
flying here I flew quite a lot of packs here but
this spot is really not as beautiful as we hoped it would be so David and I
decided to go to another spot that we saw early this morning because early this morning we were
flying at this sort of a lake I don’t know what it was but when I went up
pretty high in the air I saw some spots in the distance and that’s what we’re gonna
check out right now yeah the other arm. yeah so some of you are
probably wondering what happened to the Aikon giveaway contest and I was planning
to announce the winner for over two weeks ago
but then the concussion came along and basically the whole month of January
didn’t go as planned so if you’re wondering we did won the
Aikon electronics giveaway contest please check out the last bit of this video and
I will show you. yeah but first we need to walk a pretty big distance back to
the car and after that we need to walk for about 10 minutes to the spot, I
think. so a lot of walking today so after walking for about a half an
hour or something we arrived at the other spot. the spot behind me. this is
actually the same spot that I visited with Dennis last week or something and
last week I was flying for somewhere over there a couple of hundred meters that
way but right now we are a bit at the edge of the forest as you can see it has
some freestanding pine trees over there and I think I see some pretty awesome
lines here. yeah it’s actually a really beautiful location. anyway. I’m going
to unpack my stuff now and fly my remaining batteries so we are done flying here all of our
batteries are empty and both of my quads are still alive so it actually was a
pretty good day I must say this yeah yeah even David was able to fly through the end of the day so it’s also something special yeah
these last spot was actually really epic and last week or something I was here
too but I had some issues with a setup I crashed in the snow and after
that it stopped working I decided to fly somewhere else and this time I flew
of couple of packs here and it has so much potential here so. I’m definitely going to
fly here much more often. I think I dare to say that this is by far my favorite
spots so far. so yeah anyway guys, that’s it for this video, if you liked this
video make sure to give it a thumbs up and if you haven’t already subscribe to

Our nomadic lifestyle ~ from Chicago, Illinois

Our nomadic lifestyle ~ from Chicago, Illinois


Hello everyone from Chicago We don’t have much time here, less than 24 hours but as you can see I’m trying to make the most of it We are on a 10 day trip to 4 big cities and since we are on the road again, I wanted to talk and share our thoughts and experiences about our nomadic lifestyle that we’ve had for the last 2 years We are on the road again We just made it to Chicago and we were able to get the room early, which is always awesome We are all set up here already Rachel has to work, today’s Friday and it’s a regular workday for her I’m gonna be doing some things here too Hopefully during the next 24 hours, that’s all we’ve got here in Chicago I will find some time to go out and make some images It’s almost 5pm, we haven’t left the hotel and I think Rach, are you done? Not yet, but we are about to leave, pretty soon This is not the greatest view ever, but I’ve been taking a few pictures I think I can make an image here I really like the building, the brick and the windows I think it looks kind of cool Not seeing many photos today around here, that’s too bad Anyway, we get to go to places because we travel as you can see but it’s not like vacation, we still have to work many hours it’s not like we are exploring cities and places the whole day Well, I kind of do because I photograph, I go out and take photos, but that’s part of my job I don’t go to touristic places or do touristic stuff We do get to spend more time in each place, though unlike your typical holiday, where you might spend one week at the place and then go back home during the last 2 years we got to spend 1 month in France, 2 months in Portugal We lived in Indiana, we lived in Spain, we spent 1 month in Portland We were at many places for a significant amount of time I know that a month is not a long time but you get to know the place, you go to the same grocery store, you go to the same gas station, pharmacy, convenience store, all of those things It’s almost like living like a local, it’s almost like having mini lives within one life I think it’s a very cool experience Just got back to the hotel, today has been a very long day We woke up at 5am, 5:30am and it’s already 10pm This is a very nice room, it is a very nice hotel is in a very nice location right in downtown We don’t always stay hotels like this, we couldn’t afford it When we travel we usually stay in AirBnBs, when you get them for 3-4 weeks, for longer periods of time You usually get better deals One of the biggest benefits about being nomadic and being on the road it has forced us to reduce our possessions or at least what we travel with what we have with us is just the basics but it’s all we need These are my 2 bags This is my big bag with all my clothes, I keep the tripod there, and some accessories, toiletries and whatnot And that’s my camera bag That’s just the laptop case, but that’s pretty much it, that’s all I have That’s all I have Everything I’ve needed and everything I’ve used in this trip, in these 5 months It’s there Rachel has a few more things, but still, pretty good She’s got this backpack, and then she’s got a bigger suitcase But the situation is much better than when we started all this nomadic life a couple years ago when we left Portland That was a little bit crazy because we had just left an apartment full of stuff We had a hard time getting rid of some of that stuff The car was completely packed to the top, we had a box on the roof that was full too We traveled that road trip for 2 months with too much stuff It just made everything much harder than it needed to be And now that we move from one place to another very frequently, very often, sometimes weekly Having just 2-3 small bags makes everything much easier And also having fewer things makes taking care of it much easier I worry less about the stuff that I have – everything is under control I know everything I have, for me it’s much more manageable this way So early Okay now it’s all good That’s a little walk I would never dare to do in Portland at this time of the day but it seems to be pretty fine here Man, that’s too bad, this is what I wanted to come for a photo of the skyline I was here a little bit over a year ago, I made a photo with the Bronica but I wanted to repeat it now with my digital camera but I guess it can’t happen, yet I’ll have to wait, I’m going to go to the beach and try to find some images from there I’m trying to make a long exposure here, with the built-in ND filter I can’t get too far only down to 1.3 seconds So I’m gonna use what they are probably the tiniest ND filters you’ve ever seen This right here is a complete system, it’s a 3, 6 and 10 stop ND filters I’m gonna put the 6-stop here on the lens that combined with the 3 stops that I have in the camera, that would make for 9 stops Which should be more than enough to get a decent long exposure here Okay, so I’m going for a longer exposure now I’m using the 10-stop ND filter, the exposure is going to be around 2 minutes I have to use the cable remote because the camera can only go up to 30 seconds Anything beyond that, you have to do it manually with a cable remote Which is too bad because the remote is pretty much bigger than the camera itself I wish the camera had an option internally, built-in, so you could set the exposure time manually Say, 2 minutes, and the camera would do it because that would make this the ultimate package for long exposure photography I think it’s pretty cool that I’m shooting long exposures with this tiny camera and these tiny ND filters I still need a tripod, that is very true I forgot the small one at the hotel So this setup looks a little bit silly, with this small thing here and the big tripod, but It is true that is more inconvenient to operate this camera for long exposures because it doesn’t have as many buttons So to go manual you have to go through the menus to change the aperture, the shutter speed to focus manually and stuff like that but I think the convenience in size and weight makes up for the inconvenience when using the camera Finally made it to where I wanted to come this morning, gonna make a few long exposures here even though it’s kind of windy, so hopefully they work Look who’s come to join me So it looks like this is gonna be the last one because Rachel here is in a little bit of a hurry I guess we need to go anyway I’m not in a hurry, don’t say that I’m not in a hurry She is All right, so we’re back at the hotel, we already packed, we need to leave for the airport now we have a flight to catch Just to finish this video and to wrap up on the nomadic life that we’ve been having for the last 2 years The last thing I wanted to mention is the relationships Friendships are a little bit harder to maintain when you are traveling all the time It’s much harder to stay in touch with friends and family Although, I gotta say, the time with family, we still spend a lot of time with our families We still spend a lot of time with our families but instead of for example visiting once a week, once every two weeks, once a month We visit once a year but we stay with them for a longer period of time, like a month or two months And we get to live the everyday with them Maybe that makes it more meaningful… I don’t know, it’s kind of hard to tell I don’t know if you want to share something about, I think she does, about the whole packing situation living off a suitcase for months now So what do you think about that? Was it hard? Has it gotten any easier? At the beginning of the trip I had a big backpack and a small backpack and now I have a medium-sized suitcase and my big backpack She’s talking about this trip, 5-month trip to the US so I bought a few clothes and I have a hard time staying within my limits What do you think about it? Living off a suitcase? I’m fine with it Do you wish you had more space? That you could buy more stuff, carry more stuff with you? I don’t like to carry so much, it’s annoying and uncomfortable So having less stuff to carry around is important I think the difference with this trip, especially, is that in the past 6 months or even more than that We’ve both lost some weight Less things to carry Less things to carry, sure, but also a lot of the clothes that I brought with me don’t fit me anymore That’s a great thing You know, I was happier with myself and got to buy some new clothes on this trip So that was a good and bad thing that happened That’s a thing, when you only have a very limited space, when you buy something you usually have to get rid of something else It’s a compromise, you always have a very limited space Maybe that keeps you more in control of what you can buy or what you should or shouldn’t buy Do you feel like you’re missing something when we travel? Have you ever felt like, “I wish I had another dress” or something? No, not usually I mean, if I do want that, I just can grab it Buy it The thing I miss the most about this lifestyle, is things like that are related to work I miss working off of a monitor Just using a laptop is kind of annoying and yeah, not that comfortable well you have a small laptop, for example I have a 15-inch Even so, I like having the whole home office setup where you’ve got a better chair You’ve got your whole desk set up the way that you want it I have a standing desk thingy on top of the desk in Spain Ergonomically, it’s a lot better that’s that’s probably what I miss the most, but everything else, it’s good to be minimal Yeah, that’s important, when you work on a few hours a day, to have a good chair and a good desk I almost never have that when we travel, so I miss that the most I think that’s it, I don’t know if you want to say anything else No, I just I agree about Being able to spend more time with people, you don’t see them as often, as frequently when you do see them, it’s usually for a longer amount of time Working remotely, we were staying with my parents and I can just take my mom to breakfast before I start work, or we can go out for dinner later, or On a wednesday morning Yeah, that’s like real life with people, what they do every day And so I think that’s a nicer way to spend some time It’s like you were saying, if you have like 2 days with someone, you try to pack it all in and it’s fun but it can be a little bit tiring and stressful too We are learning stuff, we are experimenting new things For example food, we haven’t talked about food but you get to go to many places and try different foods and we really love food and that’s something that we really like to do when we go to a new city and just try new stuff In the end, it has advantages and disadvantages like everything At some point in life we’ll settle down somewhere I guess I don’t know where that will be or when that will be but we will have to I guess in our case it’s a little bit more complicated because her family is here in the US my family’s in Spain It’s hard to keep a balance between that and if we do have a job and we do have to take days off to visit our families in both countries It’s gonna be hard to go on our own to visit another countries That’s what we are trying to do now that we are still young Not that much anymore I don’t know if you have any questions about how we do all of this traveling and this nomadic stuff that we do Other than that, we need to leave right now because we are always on the move and this is just another example we’re catching a flight now, in a couple hours to DC It’s the first time I visit DC so that’s pretty exciting I’m gonna see you there in a few days For now, thank you so much for watching and see you in DC Just one more thing There are little inconveniences about this lifestyle that, you know, sometimes if you’re in a bad mood you might find yourself complaining about but if I reflect even for, if I take a moment just to to think about our lifestyle a little bit harder, from a different perspective, then it is very We’re lucky to be able to do it and incredibly privileged and I think it’s wonderful So I’m happy we can do this

1: My New Camera Came! | Overshadowed

1: My New Camera Came! | Overshadowed


So, guys, my new camera arrived! It’s like Christmas! I am challenging myself
to documenting my whole crazy, stupid life, which means I am going to shoot and edit
a video every single day. Things are actually a bit
mental at the moment. Like, I’ve got loads of stupid
exams coming up at school. My sister Tara’s birthday is soon
and I have not got her anything yet. Awkward! And my dad’s getting remarried in a
couple of months to a total nutter, which I am totally dreading. I also really want to get fit. Look at those pathetic chicken arms. What even is that? So, maybe it’s not a good idea
to commit myself to making a video every day but, hey, life is short and I really can’t wait to get
stuck in and challenge myself. Let’s see what happens. Er – let’s do this. Mum! Tara! My new camera came! Guys, say hello. Hello. Ooh, it’s so pretty! Ooh. Hello, world. It’s me, Tara! THEY LAUGH
Smile for the camera. Oh, Imogene, don’t be filming
me, my hair’s a mess today. Your hair looks gorgeous. The camera loves you. Imo, I’ve been learning the worm.
I’m getting really good. SHE LAUGHS OK. Oh, God, stop!
THEY LAUGH Tara, you literally suck at that. Don’t be mean to your sister.
She’s trying. I don’t suck! I’m getting really good at it. You are hilariously bad. OK, that is going to go viral. Er, yeah, I’m going to be famous. I suppose you’re going to
be using this to video every second of the day. That’s the plan. Yeah, well, I don’t want the entire world looking into my living room. Mm, better do some housework, Mum. Er, here’s an idea. How about you and your sister do
some housework for a change? Er, I hoovered my room this morning. Er, yeah, for about five seconds. Why don’t you make a video of
cleaning the bathroom? I bet you loads of people
would watch that. Oh, my God, Mum, you are such a
fountain of brilliant ideas. Yeah, maybe Mum should
get her own channel. Maybe I will. I’m sure
about two people would watch. Oh!
SHE YOWLS How dare you! You cheeky… Stop!
THEY LAUGH Stop tickling Tara! I’m going to wet myself! Stop, Mum, stop! Oh, God. So, here I am in my shit school
with my main gals. Girls, say hello. Hiya. Sky. Annienoos! I keep telling you, Imo,
I do not look good on screen. Come on! Get that thing away for me. No! I want to enjoy my lunch in
peace, thank you very much. Rejection. Ouch! Rosa, any thoughts of the day? Smash the patriarchy
and fuck all men. Rosa loves men, actually. Er, no, I don’t. You can
say that again. No, I don’t. OK, I want to speak to all
the people out there. Oh, for God’s sake. Listen to me and you won’t have to
make the same horrible mistakes that I did. No. What? Men are pigs. Get it? Every last one of them.
And I don’t care what you say. They’re liars. Don’t ever trust them and
don’t EVER send them nudes. Oof. Or if you do, at least make
sure your head’s cropped out. Preach, girl!
Where were you all my life? Yeah, I wish I had role models
like you growing up. Lucky escape! Oi, Sky, give me your gum,
bitch, I’m starving. Yeah, well, maybe you should get
some lunch for once, then, bitch. It’s not my fault the
school dinners are gross. Yeah, mind your own
business, lunch police. What is he doing?
Oh, those lads are the worst. Hey, he smacked me in the head with
that football last week and he didn’t even say sorry.
Wayne Dwyer, what are you doing? Stop kicking that ball right now! You are perfectly aware ball
games are prohibited. Here we go.
I SAID stop kicking the ball. No bother, Miss. Troubled boy-child
looking for attention. THEY LAUGH
Wayne! Give me that ball. Whoa. Whoa. Aw, sorry, Miss! Did you want a go?
You should’ve said. Here.
BELL RINGS See you later, ladies. Please! THEY CHUCKLE Girls, it’s five to two. You’re going to be late for class. Imogene Walsh, are you filming? WHISPERS: Shit. So, guys, introducing the new me. What do you guys think?
OK, I’ll be honest, I haven’t really done much jogging
before, but today after school, I just felt so bloated and gross
and I was like, “You know what? “I’m going to challenge myself
and do the whole running thing.” My days of being
a giant carb are over. So, 5K, let’s go! Oh, my…! Oh, my…! Oh, God. Oh, my God. Seriously cannot deal with how
red and sweaty I am right now. This is literally like the first
time in my life I’ve ever gone jogging. I have such a stitch. You’re doing it. Go girl! Ooh, I’m starting to think that 5K
might be a bit ambitious for a beginner. Nah, you can do it. You’re going to feel SO
good afterwards. Oh, God, how do people do
this for a laugh? Oh, God, my legs are
about to fall off and I’ve got blisters
on my blisters. No pain, no gain! Oh, my God! We might actually be witnessing
marijuana exchanging hands. Scandal! What are you like? I’m moving back. Come on. Oh, God, it’s probably a bit
weird that I’m filming him. Maybe I need to stop being
such a creep. It is so rough having to look
at your face on the screen. I already knew I was an ugly crier
and now I can add ugly… Jesus! Mary and Joseph,
did I scare you? Give me that back! And what’s this
sophisticated piece of technology? It’s just…nothing. Oh, looks a lot like a camera to me. No, it’s just…
Oh, so you weren’t filming me, then? No, no. It’s all right, love. The camera loves me. What! So, what do we do?
OK, wait, wait, stop. I’ll do an intro. So, here we are with a very exclusive
interview with a local legend known as… Do not call me Demented Dwyer
or I’ll fucking stab you. I was going to say Wayne. I’m only winding you up. Demented Dwyer is all
good, or Waster Wayne, or the hottest lad at school,
whatever floats your boat. Right, folks? Oh! OK, so Wayne is here to clear up
a few rumours going around. So, I just wanted to say that
whatever you saw on Imogene’s footage earlier, if it looked
like I was selling stuff or, I don’t know, whatever, I just wanted to say that… I was. I’ll do you a
great deal, too. Whatever you need, I’ll hook you up.
Contact me through Imo. OK, he’s just joking.
I swear to God, he’s joking. Say no to drugs, kids.
Oh, do do drugs, kids. Stop! This is my video. I’m not do anything wrong.
Just being a good businessman. So, I kind of feel like
I’ve failed today. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You’ve loads of time
to get on track. I know it sounds stupid, but earlier
I was so psyched up for my run and my new exercise routine and
I felt like it was a new chapter and all that BS. And I’ve just been watching back
some of the footage of my run and it really upset me. Like, obviously it’s kind of
hilarious how red-faced and sweaty I am. Like, I actually look like some kind
of horrible chubby tomato attempting to exercise. So hopefully you got some kind of
entertainment value out of it. I just don’t really like how I look.
When you’re running marathons, you’re going to watch
back those videos, you won’t even recognise yourself. There’s just so many things about
myself I need to change. Well, making a start is
the hardest part. Yeah. Look, think how good you’ll feel when you
look in the mirror and you like what you see. I just don’t know
if I’ll ever get there. Like, I just want to walk into a
room and actually feel like I’m hot. Hey, don’t talk like this. It just feels like it’s so
effortless for some people. Like, there’s so many girls at my
school with these naturally perfect bodies and I’m like, oh, it’s not fair. You can do this. Trust me. I don’t know. Mm, delicious water. Yum! OK, I’ve got to keep my voice down
or else Mum will murder me. So, guys, I had a bit of a dip there
earlier but I’m feeling way better now. Like, obviously, I know this
journey is going to be hard. That’s the point. I mean,
changing your life is hard. If it was easy,
then everyone would do it. So, yeah, I’m going to bed now and
make tomorrow into a fresh start. I’m going to try to really hard to
stay motivated and keep up the exercise plan. Good night, everybody!
