So you see that girl with the long brown hair? That’s me four years ago, around the time I first learned what a single-lens reflex camera was. I have been taken photos in some form since I was eight but it was always a hobby until now.
So a few weeks ago I found out that Geek and Sundry was looking to bring ten new vloggers (video bloggers) into their family. I decided to get brave and submit one to be part of the channel. The two big requirements: 1) be a geek (which I am) and 2) be passionate about something. So I started a vlog about me and my new camera and submitted the intro video to Geek and Sundry to be posted.
The next phase is voting and this is where you can help me. I need you to go to my link on the Geek and Sundry site and vote. You can also leave comments on my YouTube channel and subscribe to the channel so that you can get future vlog updates. If I get into the Top 30, then I move onto the second round of voting and the Top 10 from there get placed on the channel.
So if you like photography, personified objects, or maybe you just want to learn more about what a DSLR camera can do…go to those links and vote, comment, and subscribe. Me and Cain (my Canon) will thank you.
Now you might be asking yourself: “Lauren, what the bloody hell made you do this?” Well you have my photography mentor to thank for that a little bit. I was always planning on making a youtube channel that would show off my work somewhat but I had never planned for my face to actually appear on it. Geek and Sundry’s contest forced me to be a little bit creative and come up with this concept of me and my camera in sort of a domestic relationship. I wasn’t entirely sold on it, but now thinking about it, it promises to be comical, provide lots of audience participation, and it should be a wild ride.
So I am anxious to continue regardless, but taking a second to vote on Geek and Sundry would mean that the show will be more regulated, so if the idea of me fighting with an SLR intrigues you (even if you just want to laugh at me) please check out the video and vote.
In the meantime, while you are voting and waiting to hear the results, please visit the current vloggers on Geek and Sundry Vlogs. There is everything from thumbwrestling to writing, comics, and then there’s just Jeff. I am a fan and these people are awesome so check them out.
