Thanks for making thiese two videos which could have been helpful if you had reviewed them before putting them on the web. A lot of the information was lost due to:-

  • not being able to hear you speaking as you faced away from the camera - often at the crucial moment
  • not being able to see some of the processes as you stood in front of the action
  • -not being able to hear you because of either wind noise or the microphone rubbing agaist your clothing.
  • not moving in for close-ups - e.g. showing the fruit bud at the end of the shoot - torn bark after pruning
  • not doing a sound check before starting
  • not listing the essential points at the start of the video and at again at the end e.g. fruit is formes at the end of the Bramley shoots so don't prune the tips off otherwise you will have no fruit!

Please do them again and make sure you sort out these problems. The majority of videos on-linesuffer from these problems and hence are a waisted opportunity
