Ready! iPad! Action!

I had some fun this weekend at my niece’s birthday party. I took my iPad along and took a video with a new app I downloaded called 8mm HD. There are different styles to film in so I used the 60’s and added a little film jitter, as it’s called, on the app. It’s where the film frame flicks up or down. The room was a little dark but it was fun to just experiment.

I don’t own a smart phone and I’m a PC gal so doing this was completely out of my element but it was a lot of fun and I had a captive audience. 🙂

Happy birthday, Heather!
