I have been having fun watching other peoples live videos called 'scopes'. Some of them are fun and interesting and some not so much. But I can see the potential. It is the perfect tool for sharing. It is so easy to pick up the phone and take a quick video in the studio or out in the field. The broadcasts are live so no editing is possible which lends a touch of the real thing to the broadcasts. The broadcasts are available on Periscope for 24 hours. They can also be shared and saved to the broadcaster's camera roll.
After watching scopes for the last couple of weeks I decided it would be fun to try my hand at Periscope. I had my husband take video of me as I painted a quick daily painting.
Watch my Periscope broadcast of my 10 minute demo now on Youtube. Click here to watch.
So how was the experience making a Periscope broadcast? It was fun! I love doing my You Tube videos but they are time consuming.... planning the painting, setting up the camera, uploading and editing video all take time. On the other hand doing a scope is easy....picking up the phone and shooting a quick live video is painless!
I would like to do more Periscope broadcasts and I invite you to follow along. All you need to do is get the free Periscope app. www.periscope.tv and follow me. In the app go to the people tab and search for me @karenmargulis
The broadcasts will stay on your periscope list for 24 hours so you don't have to watch them live. Let me know what you think about my scope! Is this something you would like to see me do more often?
