Video Blogging 101 with Steve Garfield

October 17th, 2010

Over the past few months, I keep seeing the name Steve Garfield (of www.SteveGarfield.com).

I just finished enjoying his book “Get Seen” which was a fantastic run-down of the tips and tricks of online video.  (It’s a great book if you’re thinking of getting involved in doing video and posting it online.)

During this year’s Blog World Expo, I happened to bump into him a few times and even got the chance to thank him for the hard work he must have put into writing the book.

He also gave a session entitled Video Blogging 101 that I attended.

Steve seems to have a pleasant personality and it comes through in his videos and his presentations in person.  He talked positively about his mom’s blog and her “I can’t open it” video series.

He also gave some nice tips on video equipment.  He recommended the Zi8 Kodak camera, the Photojodo wide angle lens for iPhone, the LED simalight, and the Sennheiser shotgun mic.  All of these are nice products for producing quick videos as bloggers.

He also mentioned Music Alley for finding music that you can use in your videos.

Steve, if you’re reading this…  Thanks for the tips… and for your book.

If you are not Steve, please go buy his book.  You won’t regret it.
