How to Achieve the DSLR Look in Film-Making

 

 

 

This is my second shared post on film-making. My previous post was about camera angles. This time around, it’s about achieving the pro-film look (think Hollywood or similar) with your projects. Of course, you need the proper equipment (unless your camera has the settings mentioned in this video, already), and proper post-production software.

I have my own film project, “RYO”, that I hope I can apply these techniques to, someday.

Good luck!!

Adding Bluetooth To Your PC (Laptop or Desktop)

I’ve been using (attention hackers) Google Drive lately, to upload my photos and videos from my phone, then later downloading them to my PC. I’m still not thoroughly comfortable with putting things I’m not ready to share with the world, into cyberspace like that.

I’ve known about Bluetooth for a while…I use it every day at work, but since my home laptop doesn’t have a receiver, I resorted to cloud storage.

Today, I bought a Bluetooth receiver very cheap (shoutout to Amazon), and I’ll be installing it tomorrow.

Ever wonder how Bluetooth got it’s name? Check out this link.

Campaign (and career?) Push…

 Hey everyone, I’m doing a big campaign push for my author page on Amazon.com!
To everyone who bought copies, thank you so much! To everyone who shared, thank you as well!
Selling is hard, especially with no experience in advertising. I discovered much later in the game that a targeted audience, and/or keywords are essential to a successful marketing campaign.
Before the advent of the internet, the admen (and women) had to be on their toes with a flashy or captive advertising campaign…and hope it worked better than the competition. I think my first attempts at advertising resembled that.
I’m going with AdWords this time around because I know that not everyone is on Facebook or Twitter. I’m experimenting with various (but relevant) keywords in my ad…as I didn’t do on Facebook ads.
I can say that my name, in itself, is getting out there…this blog has been seen in well over fifty countries that I know of! That in itself is huge to me, and I appreciate the audience!
Back to my advertising, my target audiences are the United States and Japan, and if I have all my dogs in a row…maybe I’ll sell a few this time. Amazon, who sell my books, has sites in several countries…and you can find my books on any Amazon site. Just type “R.B.Bailey Jr” in the search box. Thank you in advance!
I gotta keep at it…so if you see me in front of your local train station or wherever, just take a flier and say hi.

With the recent news of Facebook leaking personal data to Cambridge Analytics, people should become more aware of what they could unintentionally share to the world (at a nice profit to many), and take steps to protect it.

There are tons of software that can do the job of hiding, and/or wiping your data from your PC, tablet or phone, perhaps making it safe. There is free software available, such as Avast! or Clean Master, but has limited options, compared to purchased or subscribed versions. In addition to having this software, the best practice is to learn to wipe your personal data from your machine yourself as frequently as possible.
