I started a YouTube channel and I like making videos every so often. Do people really just like gear reviews?
I don't really care for gear reviews. . In fact, I don't really care for any kind of talk about gear.
From time to time, I need a gear-related video, if I am trying to figure out my camera, or if I am deciding which camera to buy, but this stuff is just a "necessary evil", and not really enjoyable. . After all, photography is about photos, not cameras and lenses.
I like videos that discuss artistic vision, composition, the story behind the photo, things like that.
And I especially like videos that focus on my preferred subject matter, which is wildlife. . If you post up a well-produced video that goes in depth talking about a certain species of wild animal, then I will be watching that for sure. . I am far more interested in the things that I photograph than I am in the gear that I use to photograph them with.
I suspect this would be the same for many other photographers - that a fashion photographer would want to watch videos about the latest trends in clothes and accessories, that a glamour photographer would want to watch videos about beautiful people, that an aviation photographer would want to watch videos about airplanes, that a sports photographer would want to watch videos about football and soccer and snowboarding, etc, etc, etc.

you're a decent looking guy, but um,
nothing wrong with,
Yeah, I can relate to that.
I subscribe to Jessica Kobeissi. . Why? . Because I find her likable and attractive. . If she wasn't kinda pretty, no way I would spend any time watching her videos.
I also subscribe to Tony & Chelsea Northrup.
Well, two reasons:
1: . . Tony's really good at explaining technical things in a way that even I can understand.
2: . . Chelsea's beautiful face and happy, fun personality. . She's even drunk sometimes, and then her spirited personality comes out even bigger than usual!
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
