Seascape Photography: SUNNY CALYPSO AROUND THE BAYS by Photography Passions

'SUNNY CALYPSO AROUND THE BAYS' VIDEO
Seascape Smartphone Photography: Video & Still Photos

A Jaunt Around the Bays, in the Wake of the Sun God to Capture the Fleeting Moments on my Phone as He Paints Glorious Pictures on His Canvas where Sea meets Sky!
Here are some of these moments...enjoy.





TIP: Take still shots as well as videos if you see breathtaking scenes unfolding before your eyes! Still shots are great for freezing memorable points in time, capturing what your inspired eye is drawn to whether it's a certain scene or aspects of a scene, and cutting out the superfluous when your visual bounty is super full. Use for your video projects and as thumbnails for the latter because they are relevant and congruent to your video story.

VIDEO EDITING TIP: While Windows Movie Maker may be free to use, the downside is that it shrinks your images even when these are HD with large dimensions (2500x1500) so you get an unattractive, black border around your photos and videos. However if you upload these directly onto Youtube and then create your video using the Youtube Video Editor (YTVE) you can eliminate this detracting side-effect, even if you don't have as much versatility as you would like with this tool.

To reiterate, if your video consists mainly of photos or / and video clips that do not require much text or special effects, uploading your files directly to Youtube and then editing with the YTVE will produce better results. Check this out to see what I mean: Pretty Poppy Parade, Perfect Day For Golf versus A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky, Boat Poem. More examples at Shutterbug Shindig, Sea Jewels Youtube, see if you can spot the difference.
