Great things about being blind. Taking video.
I have had my ipod touch for a few months now. I knew that it took video footage but never really played with it until this week. I thought that taking video would be easy and straight forward. After all, when I do, the sound of my voice and of things around me is clear and easy to understand. I took a video of myself and then my guide dog who was lying beside my chair. A friend said that when I too the video of her, I actually ended up taking video of a restaurant in the food court behind us. I thought I had the ipod right in front of the dog but it took what was beyond her instead. I always forget that people can see much further than I can hear at times. It is all a very interesting process. I think that I will get my own youtube channel and I plan to put some videos up there. In some ways, I don't mind if they're blurry etc. I'm blind. I take videos as a blind person. Then, I took one while walking and it didn't look very good either. I didn't know that while walking the video will be shaky and blurry. The sound was good. It is all very interesting.
