How to make screencast?

Flattr this!

I’ve decided to make Photoshop tutorials for editing of photos. My friends-photographers asked me for to do it.  They also requested the format of those tutorials – video supported by narration. Screencasting looks like perfect technology for this task, because screencasting is video recording of computer screen output.

There is a plenty screencasting tools on the market. I selected CamStudio Recorder. CamStudio Recorder is an open-source software, it makes possible to use lot of video codecs and it allows also voice recording. All of this was important, because I did not want spend money (I spent time!), I wanted to use video codec compatible with YouTube and I wanted to record my voice as narration of the tutorial.

As you probable now, I signed-up last year to the very special event this year – photo workshop in the USA. Now I’m back in the Czech republic, sit down before my laptop and I am still full of emotions and experiences from this unusual trip. Originally, we’ve plan to see canyons and deserts, which is not something possible to see in my country nor in the whole Europe, but… We abandon this plan at the moment when Jiri Stransky said magical name of Oregon!

Maybe you know, maybe not, famous photos from Marc Adamus. If not, checked his gallery later on. Sure, pure technically his images are composites from several exposures, some better, some worse, but who take care at the first moment? They are simple unforgettable. So we wanted to see places as Oneonta gorge, Ruby beach, Thor well etc. see for ourselves.
