I was never big on photography and videography. Mostly because I completely sucked ass at it so I didn’t want to embarrass myself. Looking at what I have published so far, I must say my original intuition was correct.
What a bunch of ugly outputs by me.
Never had much creativity, probably never will.
BUT, I am beginning to develop a love for taking photos. The angles, the color, taking random pictures of people, it is quite satisfying.
Videos though, I still have a love – hate relationship. I don’t take the best clips, and my post editing skills are sub par (not to mention it’s damn annoying!). But I figured years from now it will be cool (and cringey) to re-watch these videos.
The gear I am currently using are as follows:
- Sony Alpha A5100
- Iphone 6 (I am not going to update this every time I get a new phone)
- VSCO for post photo editing
- Go Pro Hero 4
- Fei Yue SPG Stabilizer
- Go Pro Studio for post video editing
Hope you enjoy my art work! (Barf).
Hi Munky, I’m also from Toronto and will be travelling in Asia this summer. HK will be my home base and I’m hoping to visit Shanghai and a few other cities. I plan to follow some of the highlights in your 2 day itinerary for Shanghai and some of the food places you’ve mentioned for HK … any other recommendations you think I should try would be much appreciated!
ok! I am in China right now so internet is a bit shotty……will get back to you! hope you have fun in your trip.
Sounds good! Thanks!
For HK food…I recommend going to “Dong Bo” at North Point. It’s a local eatery, if you want to get some local experience. For burgers, try the Diner at LKF! After the burger you can go to LKF for some funnnnn =p. I also recommend going to this bar called Wooloomooloo in TST. It gives you a great view of HK..if i think of more i’ll let you know!
Thanks for the suggestions! I’ve heard of the bar in TST and plan to go there. The local eatery in North Point sounds good too…will have to add that one to my list!
let me know if you need more help!
So more adventures are waiting for You.
I was enticed to read what you had to say about Mah Jong and that’s how I got to know a bit more about you.
When you wrote about how you didn’t want to leave your life in Canada, surrounded by friends and things familiar, I found a similar thread in my life. What we both have in common is that we love traveling, meeting people in different cultures, and experiencing what life is like daily in the new areas of our lives.
Although we are many years different in ages, and I have stopped my adventures in the same manner, we have one more ingredient in life that makes a big difference: Courage.
I’m smiling from inside out as I wish you many more new and exciting adventures!
Thank you Millie! And thanks for stopping by. I believe that only by leaving your comfort zone you can truly understand what you can accomplish if you put your mindset to it. I hope all is well with you, and that you can restart your adventures! Age is only a number!
Thanks for the encouragement back! It’s making my day as I think about taking on a new adventure after selling all my stuff in a garage sale, cleaning my corners, meeting all my writing deadlines, quilting lap blankets for babies-to-come, close friends, and family…yes, a new adventure would be an exciting escape from all these important things I need to do.
