Also, when I filmed this video it was really freaking hot for some reason. I live in Canada and usually its negative degrees, and it was like 20-30 degrees that day and my body just wasn’t having it.

As you can see, I’m still experimenting with things on this channel. Things may be a little inconsistent until I can figure out what I really like. I tried out a new colour correction blend, and I don’t think I’ll use it again because I’m a bit overexposed.
