I have a lot of Videos on my YouTube Channel
I have made quite a few videos on making hypertufa planters, bowls, hanging pots, etc. I have many videos about my draped hypertufa planters there also, including the ones here on the posts.
I have also made some videos for the recipes and crafts and activities from my other posts, so feel free to explore and find something you like. I try to keep the videos fairly short so that you can watch them quickly since we are all on the run these days.
Here are a couple of links . Click and be directed to the video. ( I was experimenting at getting really creative. Or maybe it was two glasses of wine that evening.)
I am learning more and more about videos as I go. Some of these are also on posts here on the website.
I work in the garage and outside when the weather permits. I am trying to learn how to use editing software, so I apologize in advance. My son laughs at some of my early “intros” for The Hypertufa Gardener and pretends to fall asleep.
You may see some really long ones in there where I experimented.
But I am having fun doing this, and perhaps viewing the procedure in action will help you. Let me know if there is anything you would like to see demonstrated.
My Equipment for Making my Videos.
Just in case you are curious about my frugal equipment
You know I am frugal and that stays the same even when I am making photos for my blog. Granted, one day I may decide to upgrade to a bigger and better camera. But for now, this is what I use.
My phone camera
I have the Samsung-SM-G920V and I set it for the highest resolution 5312 x 2988 and video size 1920×1080.
You must always take your photos and especially the videos with the phone held horizontally, not vertically. Trust me.
My other camera.
It is a Samsung WB350F and this works for photos and videos.
I recently got a tripod at a garage sale $5 (after some complaints about how unsteady I was, and it did help a lot).
Software, the biggest expense
My son was so good to me and got this for me. He used it too for his channel on YouTube, so he was able to teach me too. He is a gamer. It is a detailed program and has so much capability, more than I have discovered, I know. But I am learning day by day.
I also have dual monitors on my computer set up so that I can listen/read/make changes while looking at two screens instead of toggling between tabs. ( I confess that I do have many tabs open anyway…on both.) I know my son had a different graphics card in my computer, but most have a dual port anyway if you would like to hook up two monitors.
Hi, I am Kim and thank you so much for visiting my magazine! I am a gardener and a hypertufa maker. If you came here to learn about hypertufa, I have a lot of information. But I also write about flower gardening and using succulents which are great drought-tolerant plants.
