Capture: VHS Camcorder

In creating video art, I find it’s crucial to be good at shooting your own footage to sample and use in your work, which also means getting used to the less-than-friendly 4:3 screen ratio of VHS cameras. VHS fills, for me, a crucial niche in being able to capture short moments and movement in largely static spaces, and thus ideal for making gifs and creating a sense of environment and place.
