I don’t like keeping secrets with you guys because I want to help you guys out as much as possible.

H2: Planning is Key
Every time I hop on a plane and go to explore a new country, I always feel so grateful. That being said, there’s only so many times a year where I can go out, so I want to make sure I make it count. Going into this trip to Iceland, I wanted to come out with as many long-form videos as possible without sacrificing on quality, as well as a bunch of short-form content and photos to post. So, my process for a trip like Iceland is to spend a whole bunch of time and energy planning.
The first step in planning is ideation. Basically, the week before the trip to Iceland, I spend a whole bunch of time coming up with ideas and scripting them out. I came up with the idea of doing a video about what’s in my travel camera bag, as the gear I’m taking on this trip is a lot different than on previous trips. I also thought of doing a tutorial on how to set up your camera to be a hybrid shooter, as I’m constantly changing things up during a trip. These were the starting points for my videos.
H3: Equipment and Editing
Knowing the gear I wanted to use, like the Fujifilm X100V and the Sony a7s3, helped me plan the types of videos I could create. I knew I wanted to talk about my camera bag and the different shooting techniques I used. I also planned to do editing breakdowns of the photos I took with each camera. By planning the equipment and editing process, I could create specific videos.
H3: Filming Process
The key to maximizing content from one trip is knowing which videos you can film beforehand and on location. I filmed the “What’s in My Travel Camera Bag” video beforehand in my office and linked it with footage from the trip. I also planned to film one video while I was in Iceland and take photos with the camera, which I could then edit and talk about in separate videos. By spreading out the filming process, I was able to capture different aspects of the trip.
H3: Scripting and Shot Lists
Once I had my ideas chosen, I started writing scripts for each video. This included talking points and shot lists to ensure I captured all the necessary footage. Having a script and shot list helped me stay focused while filming and prevented me from overdoing it. It also ensured I had everything I needed when I returned home to edit the long-form videos.
H3: Repurposing Content
The final step in my planning process is figuring out how to repurpose my content. Based on the long-form videos I create, I come up with ideas for short-form content. This allows me to maximize the reach and engagement of my content across different platforms. By repurposing, I can create more content from the same trip.
By following this planning process, I was able to create and post content consistently from my Iceland trip. It’s all about maximizing your potential and being intentional with your content creation. So, whether you’re going on a trip or starting a new project, take the time to plan it out and create content that resonates with your audience.
