Day 105 ~ D-I-Y-ness
WHAT: Fun, Project 365 (2009), Useful Stuff   |   WHEN: April 20, 2009

I love behind the scenes documentaries. Gimme a show about how something's made, and I'll give you 30 minutes of my life to watch it. Sometimes 60 if it's really cool.

Well, here's my behind-the-scenes mockumentary. Recently, I announced some new textures from Italy, and I created a video tutorial to show how I use them. After take 12, I had a pretty good video ready to go... until I listened to the audio. Sounded like I was in a windstorm, and every time I said the letter "p" or "t", the puff air created in the enunciation sounded like a tornado was camped outside my window. Zoinks, Shaggy.

Thanks to my buddy, Robin, who's got a background in AV equipment and basically all things electronic, I managed to create a DIY solution to fix the problem based on his instructions. Tools required? A wire hanger, some duct tape (of course), and a pair of panty hose. I felt like a MacGyver, and it worked like a champ to get me out of a jam. The audio sound soooo much better with this little contraption. BTW, the Nikon 70-200mm lens box served only as a stand to elevate the microphone closer to my mouth during recording.

I bet Paul Harvey didn't have such humble microphone beginnings.
