VIDEO IS HERE, I TELL YA
i am more of a visual person. so i thought i would show you a bunch of the ways that videos are now evolving. from large brands to blogs, videos are showing up everywhere. in our blogshop video class (the next one is in two weeks in LA!) we go over tips on how to shoot your videos with a nice camera or even an iphone. we talk all about the equipment to buy, music resources and styling tricks. then we show you how to edit it all in photoshop. how to add text, title cards, organizing your files, adding music, and how to do it all quickly! it’s a one day crash course on videos for your business.
check out some awesome ways that video can be used…and subscribe to the designlovefest youtube channel here!
whether it’s a DIY project, a recipe or a fashion how-to…sometimes video helps explain the story better and gives people more clarification. for instance, i love what leaf tv is doing. short lifestyle videos with style…
or this video we made a few years ago showing all the different ways i like to wear scarves. video is also a great way to show your personality on your website, that doesn’t always translate through photos!
FOR YOUR SHOP:
my friend elise from pennyweight has her own curated shop filled with beautiful items from various makers. i think video is such a fantastic & simple way to show off the items in your shop! i think it really gives people a better idea of how the items look in their environment. check out this short video of an industrial lamp:
and what about lookbooks? they come alive on the video platform! make your shop shine just like this adorable vintage shoe video from the weaver house!
some of the favorite videos we have put together around here have been based on our travels & adventures. some more highly produced, and some just shot on my iphone and edited in photoshop (that’s what we teach you in our video blogshop!) this is when my boyfriend and i traveled to barcelona and he documented it…
and a fun, home video style one from our girls trip to palm springs. i just rewatched this and smiled the entire time. video is such an awesome way to bring you right back to happy times.
and family! the perfect way to document your little ones. i will probably take one million videos when i have kids of my own. i mean, how cute is birdie from bleubird’s videos. unreal…
gosh, this wedding gets me every time. the lovely day of max & margaux, shot by sharkpig. we have students that sign up so they can learn how to edit their own wedding footage and save some cash…
we found it was really helpful when we first started blogshop to document the experience so people would know what to expect from the workshop…
and these are only a couple of the ways that video is changing the online world. it’s time to jump on the bandwagon! what do you think about videos? do they intimidate you? excite you? bore you? what’s your take?
