In Spring this year I bought myself a GoPro Hero 5 adventure camera. There was 2 reasons for this. First of all since very soon we are going to travel through SE Asia I wanted to capture as much of the trip with camera also and share it with other people. The second reason is related to my interest with photography and naturally video making and editing is not very far from it.
During the summer I made 3 short videos, first one just for testing and just for fun. Second video was to give an overview of beautiful Taevaskoja-Kiidjärve hiking trail in Southern Estonia and the 3rd to promote different sporting activities for which I also rent equipment for. Feel free to go and have a look :)!
Youtube is full of users and channels who share interesting content on daily basis. Although there are several people I follow regarding self-improvement, training, technology, music, cars etc. there is one who’s videos are just very simple, fun and also educating to watch if you want to spend some relaxation time in Youtube not just wasting it but learning something interesting in the process. He regularly posts videos about different facts, top 10’s, fun and scary topics and much more. Go and check it out but be warned, his videos can be quite addictive :)!
If some new technologies can bring as much bad as good here are 2 that will definitely find a place in our world. The biggest problem with these kind of new things is the cost and therefore availability for bigger audience. If that issue can be solved then there could a lot of good things coming. I especially like the idea of Gravitylight. It might not mean much to people living in the modern world but there are millions of people for who this can literally be a lifesaver.
I love taking photos and I also love Photoshop. And I like lot of photographs that have been edited in Photoshop but there still nothing comparable with a photo that has this wow effect and you’re never going to believe that moment actually existed in real life. Here are a few links to some of the best collections in my opinion:
I just love what this guy and others like him manage to create using just a camera, different light sources and darkness as their loyal friend. I have also tried this technique but I still have a lot to learn. I hope that some day I will be as good as he is. I strongly believe that photography is art, not technology. Just enjoy :)!
I’ve always been fascinated about the new technologies that are slowly or in some cases rather quickly being integrated into our lives. I believe that there are always 2 sides to each story. From one side it’s great that there are a lot of new technologies that help us every day and offer us experiences that we couldn’t even dream about 10 years ago. But from other perspective it’s quite terrifying to think about what will happen with that true real human experience and human connection in the midst of this technology age. We’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. I really hope that we manage to combine the best parts from both of the worlds.
Here’s one example of technology that you can already buy. And actually these kind of things don’t even have to be outside of your body anymore…
From April 2015 I have been arranging different kind of get-togethers via Meetup community. I created a group called Tallinn Networking and Socializing Meetup where everyone can join. So far I have held 27 Meetups so far and that number will definitely grow.
I first discovered this site when I was visiting the states back in Spring 2015. In California specifically it’s hugely popular and this idea of creating my own Meetup started to form in my head. The idea of this certain group is to bring together different people (from Estonia and also worldwide) who would like to get new friends and just have a good time. There have been different topics and activities throughout the Meetups but the idea has always remained the same. I just love to have conversations with people from all over the world, everyone has their own story, everyone’s special. And I also love to see people coming together, finding new discussion partners and even friends while having fun doing it.
A lot of content will follow regarding my own group and Meetup community in general. But meanwhile go and check it out yourself:)! And of course, you are welcome to join the group!
