Nerdfie is a ? So What’s it gonna be ? It seems we have a choice of what we want a Nerdfie to be? Should a Nerdfie be a Photograph of a person wearing their Nerd Glasses or maybe a group of people wearing a set of Nerd Glasses? By the way it is really easy to get some Nerd Glasses, just simply go to the local two dollar shop and there is normally a few in stock and they are easy to spot amongst all the other glasses. Of course we all know what Nerds look and some think it’s a cool look, even a bit retro! Big Dark Rimmed Glasses that sit on a innocent face that belongs to some smart guy or gal that spends all their time being smart because they are no good at sports or rapping! But that’s cool the world needs these folk as well and here is a chance to pay homage to these endearing folk who happily stay at home and study while the rest of us are causing havoc at the pubs. Poor old Nerds, it’s just not fair! But hey they even had a movie made about them back in the 1980’s Nerd Movie I can still remember jumping the fence at the Drive Inns to watch it on a summers night, good fun. But because Nerds are normally quite smart would they be happy with just a Nerd Photo or would they perhaps wish to do something like a Vidfie where they are proudly wearing their Nerd Glasses in a short spinning Video showing themselves and their current whereabouts? I thin the Nerd may favour the second option but until we ask some Nerds I cannot be sure of their exact preference? Maybe we should vote on what to do with the Term Nerdfie.Com? Should it be a Photo wearing Nerd Glasses or a Vidfie where the person is wearing Nerd Glasses, personally I would love to see a Vidfie in front a punk band!
Well I just spent a whopping $1.50 on ebay to buy some “Nerd Glasses” So I couldn’t wait to do another Vidfie of me wearing them, It was done on the nature strip in the middle of the road in front of where I live ! Vidfies are easy to do, you just do a short spinning video of showing yourself and where you are while spinning. It normally goes for about ten to seconds for the best vidfie! Forget selfies, vidfies are here to stay and are so easy to do with nearly all the new phones having a video option, there’s no excuse not to show the world where you are and what you are doing a vidfie! The term Vidife appears in the Urban Dictionary Selfies are so yesterday and do not really show us where you are and what you are up to? Especially now that we can add videos to Youtube with out fuss or hassle.
The chance to do a vidfie really is upon us and you can do one anywhere you want to, just get the video cam pointing at you and then click start while you begin to slowly spin around to get some the background into the video shot. The best Vidfies are about ten to twenty seconds long, just under twenty seconds seems to be a good length and uploads onto YouTube really quickly so it sure does not take long to do one and join the new craze that is set to takeover the world of boring old Selfies, you can have a contest and see who can do the best vidfie between you and your friends. Soon you will be able to upload a clip of your vidfie right here at this site and show the world how cool your example is
Here we have an example of how not to make a vidfie. The true Vidfie involves showing your current location and a short spin to give a 360 degree view of where you are. fun fact number five, the better the location the better the Vidife.
Nice try but ….
Here is a vidfie done in Echuca on the Murry River where Victoria and New South Wales meet on the border. This is one of my favourite vidfies and shows the grand old paddleboat steamers in their full glory and as a great reminder of an era long gone now.
This was a fun Vidfie to make and it was a always one of my desired Melbourne destinations which is of course the Melbourne Star Big Wheel , this example of my Vidfies shows just how tall the Big Wheel really is when you are up close. It also show the modern spaceage looking capsules where the people enjoy the view from, please do enjoy this Vidfie
This is one of my Vdifes taken at Hosier Lane in Melbourne, the lane way is a popular destination for tourists and locals to admire all the street art on display. Many people love to have their photo taken in front of their favourite piece of street art. There are even tours that explain some of the history of the lane way and who has adorned its walls. I can’t say for sure but it is possible that the famous Banksy may have done a few pieces in the past, i will have to do my homework on that one
This Vidfie was taken inside St Kilda’s Luna Park where it was a real busy day. I tried to show a few of the rides and managed to get some of the roller coaster in the shot as well as the Ferris Wheel and a few other smaller rides. The best Vidfies entice the viewer to play them again to see what they missed the first time. I think this one is that type of Vidfie.
This Vidfie is taken in the popular Bourke Street Mall in Melbourne, the train driver gives me a warning ‘ding’ just to let me know he’s right behind me. But i knew he was there and timed the vidfie to include the tram. So all was good and we even get to hear the busker i was just watching only seconds earlier. One of my favourite vidfies for sure.
I must admit i quite like this Vidfie as it shows off Melbourne’s Federation Square and the Old Church opposite Flinders Street Train Station. At the 12 second mark you can see the mobile ticket sales booths for the Australian Tennis Open, lot’s of people were already lined up to get their ticket for the grand slam. This one of my best Vidfies for sure!
