It's VLOG Time (The Girl Behind The Blog)!

So I am a Vlog Virgin you guys. I was reaaaaally nervous for this
(as you can tell by my shaky voice in the video)!
This was my first one...so go easy on me!

I learned a couple of things while doing this:
1--I think most of us HATE hearing our voices on camera (I am no exception).
2--I ramble when I get nervous
3--I say UM a lot and smack my lips.
4--After doing 2 before this one, I still was as nervous as the first one I did!



Why does YouTube choose the most hideous screen shots? :)

Linking up with my friends Andi & Ashley for The Girl Behind The Blog!

  4. Great vlog! I still have not had the courage to do one. When I was an education major I had to record myself reading a book and I swore I would never record myself again!

  5. Well I think you're voice sounds great! And I have to say, I really like mine on camera - just a shame about my terrible accent ha. But yeah I totally agree with you about the photography thing - it just makes you want to look and learn more about something. And honestly, no need to be nervous next time - you did a swell job :-) x

  6. I love your hair…so pretty! I've heard a ton of good things about the Canon Rebel T3i! I've heard it does everything you want and is pretty user friendly. :) I didn't even notice the lip smacking by the way!

  8. I have a Canon EOS 60D and LOVE it. I am still learning about it, but there are so many online tutorials and blogs and whatnot. I find that it takes sharp pictures, and once you get the hang of it, it's easy to use!

  11. You are adorable :)

    I am very excited for you to start your journey into the photography world. I have a canon rebel t2i and it is great for a beginner. It is easy to learn on and takes beautiful photos. Also, it is not too hard on the bank if you are looking for an affordable option.

    I recommend getting a 50mm 1.8 prime lens (these are super cheap - I am talking like only $100 when many lenses are easily over $500) it takes gorgeous photos and allows for a lot of creative room since you can get a very large aperture and really "blur" the background. Most of my photography teachers recommend getting that lens right off the bat. Trust me, you won't regret it! Can't wait to see your new photos :)

  14. Ahhhhhh I MISS YOU GIRL!! You already know how fabulous I think you are! So, I love the idea of taking a photography class! I might look into finding someone to watch 5ohBaby for me so I can do that, TOO. I have the Cannon t2i that I got at Costco and I love it.

  19. You are the cutest ever. I could never do a vlog - so scary! I do video conferences all day long and cringe all the way though but at least they are over and done with when you log out.

    You come across really well and it's lovely to get to know you!

  26. I think you did great. Love watching these blogs today. I have a nikon 3100 and although im beginner.too I love it! Super easy to work. Nice.in manual and auto.

  27. GIRL--you are an awesome vlogger! You looked great, sounded great, you were funny and sincere. Loved it! It's funny because I've never had an interest in photography (at.all.) But now that I'm blogging, I'm starting to wish I had better pictures. So I can see where this is going already...haha!

    Can't wait to hear how your classes go!

  28. You are too cute! I loved the vlog and yes.. I think just about every girls hates her own voice when they hear it. I change my voicemail gretting about 100 times for this same reason :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. You sounded so natural! It doesn't seem at all like this was your first time vlogging. You have a pretty voice. And I love your hair color! Is it natural?

    I ramble like a pro, too, so I can tell already we are going to be good friends. :]

    I love that you're looking to learn more about photography! My college roommate had a Canon t1i and it takes really good pictures. When you do get your spiffy new camera, I recommend looking to Courtney Kirkland's Move to Manual series: http://www.courtneykirkland.net/category/photography/move-to-manual/
    Courtney is a fabulous photographer and if I had a DSLR I'd have been trying out all of the tricks and tips she shares in that series.

  30. This was so cool to hear your voice! So glad you did it! I am promising myself that I am going to do it next month! You were so natural and great at Vlogging! I actually think we have the same nervous energy :)
    And ah, get a CANON! My dream camera is obviously the 1D, but I'm hoping for the 7D, its amazing!!

  31. Thought this was great! You sound just as sweet as I thought you were!

  32. That was great! You did better than I would =). And PS, that lamp shade is adorable (isn't it funny the silly little things you notice?)!

  35. Good job Jenna! You look beautiful as always! My vote is for a Canon. I have 2 and they are my favorite.

  36. Stopping by from the Hollie Rogue! your vlog was fantastic! And I am in love with your beautiful red hair! :) ~Bri~

  37. Jenna, I loved your voice! i've heard so many amazing things about you on other blogs, but seeing as I'm a pretty new follower, I haven't felt like I've gotten to know you very well. The miscarraige post was really cool to just hear your heart in that and I am so praying that God continues to heal that and use it for His glory. Thanks for sharing. =)

  38. Love it! aaand...we can def. answer any questions you have about photography. To start...Bry has a photography unraveled blog that he started way back when that has some great getting started tips etc. http://photographyunraveled.blogspot.com/
    He also has his photo blog: http://bryanmccrackenphotography.blogspot.com/ that has some great pics and examples on there (hasn't been updated in a while. We need to get on that.) But hopefully that first one gives you a jump start.
    I am a Nikon lover. It was my first film SLR camera and now is our DLSR camera. I love everything about it and it takes fantastic pics. if you have any questions, just let me know. I am at your disposal! ;)

  41. 1. Love your voice. 2. If you don't continue on with the vlogs I'm going to be upset with you. 3. You can change the thumbnail for your videos. Just go to Video Manager click edit and then you'll see where you can choose from 3 video thumbnails!
