Snapshots and Scenes: Our Summer Holiday on Film

I love using my blog as a visual reminder of our family’s adventures, and over the last few months I’ve tried to incorporate a bit of film-making into my repertoire after being lucky enough to attend at Venture North Byte 17 with Nigel Camp of The Video Effect earlier in the year. At the event, Nigel showed us how to make good quality video content on a budget – and left us all feeling very inspired about what we could go away and create!

Since then I’ve made a couple of little videos, and whilst they’re by no means professional, I do love that I now have a few snippets of family life that I can go away and view time and time again. Photos are lovely, but there’s nothing quite like seeing a moment brought to life in film to take you back to a time and place and make you feel like you’re reliving it all over again.

So with summer coming to an end in the North of Scotland, here’s a roll back right to the start of our holiday season and a little highlights video of the 7-day trip we took in our campervan to the Outer Hebrides. Although it took me ages to put this video together (as a beginner, the editing is painstaking!), I’m hoping with time and practise I can get a little slicker. I’m linking this post up to the new ‘Snapshots and Scenes’ linky with Kerri-Ann at Life As Our Little Family and some of her lovely co-hosts. I do hope you enjoy this little video and maybe even get the inspiration to capture some cinematic family footage of your own!

Oh, and if this video happens to get you in the mood for a trip to the Outer Hebrides, you can find out all about our holiday, and get lots of ideas for things to do in the Western Isles in my post right here!

See you there next year?
