Taping

Spent the day taping episodes of Little Garden on the Prairie. Today, there was a professional cameraman who was knowledgeable about lighting. It was fascinating to watch him work. He adjusted and adjusted until he got it right. I was watching on the monitor, and every improvement was worth the trouble.

I am slowly catching on to how to speak on camera. It gets easier with every taping. But man, does it take time. I can't believe the work that goes into a five-minute segment. I am completely worn out.
