Q: How tall are you?
A: I’m 5’1. Which means that by the time I’m my mother’s age, I’ll be 5’0, because we all shrink as we get older. T_T
Q: What’s your ethnicity?
A: I’m mostly Filipina/Pinay, but there’s also quite a bit of me that’s Spanish and Chinese. My big sister recently went through our entire family tree and is proud to say we are also .5% Jewish. Shalom.
Q: Do you have a boyfriend?
A: Yes. He’s an angel that I seriously can’t believe exists, and his name is Tony.
Q: What sort of camera, lens, and software do you use to film your standard YouTube videos?
A: I’m currently using a Canon 70D Video Creator Kit with a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens. I sometimes switch my lens out to a Canon 50mm f/1.8 or the zoom kit lens that came with my camera if I’m filming multiple people in a video, but the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 is definitely my favorite. I use Final Cut Pro X to edit my videos.
Q: What do you use to film your video blogs?
A: Tony and I currently use three different cameras to film our video blogs. A Sony RX100 m3, Sony RX100 m4, and a GoPro Hero Session 4. We mount the Sonys on selfie sticks, and we handhold the GoPro when we go underwater or do things that require a more rugged filming device.
Q: What lights do you use to film your videos?
A: I use natural lighting from a window when I can, and for supplemental lighting, I use these crazy contraptions. I also have an 18″ Diva Ring Light Nebula that I literally never use.
Q: Do you Photoshop any of your pictures?
A: Uhm, who doesn’t? I try not to go out of control, but I’ll definitely remove pimples and blemishes, fix my hair, etc. For product photos, pictures of my friends, and/or any other professional looking photos, I color edit everything. … What? I’ve been a professional photographer. It’s habit.
Q: What camera and lens do you use to take your blog pictures?
A: I use a Sony Nex-7 with a Sony 35mm f/1.8 lens and shoot in raw, then edit in Adobe Lightroom. I also use my vlogging cameras and iPhone 6+ to snap quick photos.
Q: Where do you get music for your videos?
A: I get most of my music by browsing around randomly on Soundcloud, and every so often, I’ll accept music from producers looking to promote their work in exchange for usage rights. I dig supporting independent artists.
