It’s important to introduce yourself

There are many blogs online, which means you need to distinguish yourself and your blog.   In the Reporting and Writing Across Media class, we are learning how to post video introduction and how to use iMovie.

For my introduction, I produced a video of James McCanatha, my graduate assistant.

Shooting this video was fairly simple because I had a cooperative subject, who is very camera-friendly.  He is a photojournalist and knows what it’s like to be in front of as well as behind the camera.

What was a challenge is making sure I have my file saved in the right place because I don’t have my external hard drive today.

James actually shoots photos and posts them regularly to his blog, which is called Project 365.

He began this blog within the last few months.
