You Have To Be In It to Win It.
File this one under: Obvious
To make awesome home movies, you need to take your camera out of the closet.
- How many times have you seen something really cool, and you wished that you had your camcorder?
Say you went out for a beer at the Las Vegas Lounge in Philadelphia. You order a Miller Chill with lime, and then you see Danny Bonaduce walk in wearing an Evil Knievel costume. Then, he challenges you to a thumb war.
I mean, just say that happens… and you don’t have any camera.
That would really be a bummer, man!
I’m not suggesting that you should walk around everywhere with your camera bag.
That would be impracticable.
As it turns out, however- I do have a suggestion.
Keep your camera bag stocked with:
- Your camcorder (Now I’m just being flippant with you)
- 2 charged batteries
- 2 tapes or memory cards to record onto
- a decent tripod – even if it’s just a table-top model
Then, take it with you whenever it’s practical.
