It's been a month since I've posted here. It isn't because I've been lazy, I've actually been more productive in the last 6-8 weeks than I have in a while!
I've been making films/videos/shorts and posting them to YouTube. I finished the video with my friend Freddy (the endurance athlete). "Run At It" is on YouTube and I'm really happy with how it was received. I also shot behind the scenes footage of the shoot that day - yes, I shot Freddy and myself! It was a little hectic, but I'm happy those people with an interest in processes can get a little taste of it all.
I then shot a video for my friend Robyn. She owns an Etsy shop that sells calligraphy and hand-lettering on all sorts of things. I actually purchased one of her first globes with a great travel-inspired quote on it. I hope this video gives a little personality to her online shop!
Most recently, I got a new camera! I don't like to get too caught up in gear - it's a rabbit hole - but I'm super excited about my newest tool. This is my first new "big" camera since I began shooting in 2012. It's a Sony a6300 and a video of the unboxing is on my YouTube channel (seeing a pattern here?). I'm really stoked to get a bunch of footage shot with it.
I'm dedicating a lot of time to YouTube right now. I'm feeling much more productive and accomplished with this slight change in direction. The videos I'm releasing seem to be sticking a lot harder online and people are telling me they're enjoying them. I also just surpassed 5,000 views on my channel. I'd be super appreciative if you subscribed and checked some of my older videos out! Just search "Ryan Holden Imagery" on YouTube and you should find my channel easily.
As always, I'm extremely thankful you're around to see what I'm up to!
