Hello midnight kitchen San. Lovely video and thanks for the recipe. Here is a tip for when you have tripod issues; move on to still shots instead of moving shots. So shoot the bowl with the rice, make sure you’re holding the camera with two hands the body and under the lens to stabilize or on each side of the body if it’s a smaller camera. Then shoot the eggplant on top of the rice and then after you’ve drizzled the sauce etc. The eating shot can be done with the camera on a stack of books perpendicular or parallel to your body. Then depending on your editing software you can also further reduce the shakiness with stabilize the shot function. Great video regardless of technical issues 👍🏿

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s always good to see your new videos pop up, and a vegan recipe is very welcomed. I just wanted to let you know that your channel is the reason I have miso paste in my fridge at all time now. Take it easy, but keep up! Your channel is something special, and I really think it will grow and blow up eventually.
