With over 170+ Instagram submissions this year (most of them being videos), I’m shocked at how much I’m enjoying creating content for Instagram. I used to lump it together with “Twitter” as things I don’t like. I still don’t like Twitter, but turns out, Instagram is pretty cool. Even though I’m only allowed 15-second videos, it’s been interesting how that limitation has been pushing my creativity in new ways. Now that I’m getting better at video editing, what I do is I record stuff with my phone or dSLR and transfer the files to my computer, edit it using Sony Vegas, add music, splice/modify clips and whip them up together. I save them on my phone through dropbox and then upload them to Instagram.
It’s kind of useful for teaching very small things or showing demonstrations or making neat “advertisements” or “announcements” for my full yoga videos. Some things are so simple they don’t require a 3 minute YouTube video, but are perfect for instagram.
Order goes from newer to older in each separate category. I will attempt to organize this all better in the future hopefully.
