April 2021 was an amazing month as I got to share with you ‘Photo Stories’ from 30+ BIPOC Women Photographers from around the world. Each lady shared either a photo or a series through a series of conversations we had about their images and work.
This blog post is a brief recap of those stories which you can watch either chronologically or by picking any random day.
I am one of those photographers that does not like being in front of the camera but having said that I might as well get used to it seeing as I already have a YouTube channel.
Yes, you read that right, I do have a channel, but I haven’t uploaded a video for 9 months.
The more I watch myself, the more I see that I need to work on my presentation skills. I have never been so uncomfortable in front of the camera and continuing on this journey of putting myself out there will be a weird one.
Also, let me just go ahead and say that the reason I haven’t uploaded in months is that I was derailed by various events in the past few months, both good and bad. This made me lose my mojo to vlog, but I am slowly getting it back to it. I have this urge within me to share my journey as a mum and photographer and sometimes, a video works best.
I have a plan like I do with this blog, to hold myself accountable and post at least one video a week, but for now, I think I will start with one video every two weeks. I am yet to decide when to post. Perhaps every Friday like the blog post or Saturday, what do you think?
Photo Story will continue and my hope with this is to involve a few people as guests on my vlog. If this is something you would be willing to collaborate on, please leave a comment on this post. I would love to hear from you.
So, from September seeing as it’s a new year for school and all, I will be back on my channel with a new video.
Wish me luck as I conquer my fears one self-image and video at a time.
