Oi. This was a doozy. So many things went wrong that I was reluctant to edit it, but it turned out way better than I anticipated. It was also way LONGER than anticipated, haha! I really do go into these practice sessions blind, so I had no idea what to expect... I just wasn't expecting it to be this long!
I was also messing with the manual functions of my camera to get it to look better than it has in previous weeks. I like how it looks! But of course it had to die... Now that I think of it, I think a big reason why it died sooner than I expected was because I was testing the camera settings so much before I started filming (a good half hour or so). Whoops.
The practice session itself was a workout, but it was super fun. It felt great afterwards, especially because I knew that I've finally finished an entire piece for you guys!! Well, not finished, but at least you guys have seen me practice all three movements now. :D
