Ken Smith is on a distinguished road

Instagram only allows 1 minute videos. These are shot on the spot without rehearsal. Just winging it. The YouTube channel Videos were produced and shot professionally. As things happen day to day and a bass is shipping out, minutes before we pack and ship it, we sometimes shoot a video for Instagram of up to about a minute long. Wecan't do Pro shot videos daily on the spot like that.

The Instagram vids bring you into MY world on the spot with no rehearsal. Just whatever happens as if you were standing there. It has its value in my opinion.

But, thanks for the feed back. I agree with your viewpoint on the difference of quality in the shoot. But it's also good to know how and why we to the short ones on the spot as things are happening.
