A while back, I said I would do a video about the video rig that my hubby’s friend made for me. When I set up my ARTHaven, I wanted to find a satisfactory way to arrange my video camera to record the work I do on my table, and discovered that although many people record their work, they do not tell us how they support the camera! Eventually I found a video on Youtube by Linda Israel which told me exactly what I wanted to know. She has got a marvellous rig over her table which also supports two lamps which shine down on the work.
I knew this was exactly what I wanted, so I made a drawing based on her video, and asked a friend of my hubby’s whether he would make it for me, and he did. I’ve got my two lamps, and I’ve also attached a 4-gang extension socket to one end, which has cleared a lot of the cable clutter off my table and made the work run more efficiently too.
As I was between projects, I decided to reorganise and tidy my ARTHaven as it was starting to get very untidy again, and when it was done I thought it was a good chance to video not only the video rig, but my whole ARTHaven.
The video is a bit shaky, I’m afraid, as I had to hold the camera in my hand as I went round the room. I used my normal digital camera in video mode as the video camera is set up on the rig, and the sound isn’t quite as good, unfortunately, but you can get an impression of the room, and all the space I’ve got for all my equipment and materials.
I feel very blessed to have such a lovely space for my ARTHaven. It really is my special place, and when I go in there I have a lovely upbeat feeling, and so enjoy being creative in such an atmosphere. When I look out of the window I can see our garden, and with the window open I can hear the birds singing. I’m so grateful to my hubby and Wonderwoman for helping me rearrange the room where I can feel so fulfilled and happy.
