Great examples.  I've been wanting to do stop motion but just haven't had time.  On my list now.

Yes, stop motion are great fun and can give excellent results with a good idea.
They are much more time consuming, they need a good story board and especially artificial light.
They take a long time to make and if you are using natural light, any cloud passing by will ruin the shot.
But the results are often worth the effort.
I will definitely do a specific video about stop motion

Some constructive criticism.... (please don't be offended)....



You should show timelapses at the very beginning. At the moment, there is 50" of you talking.  That's a big chunk of the video.

Show, don't tell. :-)

Well, it would be soooo much easier and so much less time consuming to do it as you say.
Sadly on YouTube it doesn't work that way.
You have to establish a contact with the audience, they need to see you as someone that they know, some of them will not like me at all, of course, other will. But if you don't talk to them you are anonymous, they forget you.
Also you need to tell them what to do: if you say subscribe, or give me thumbs up, they do it. If you don't say it, they just don't. Even more if you have things to sell: if you don't tell them, they don't buy them.
Also, don't forget that now a video on YT has to be at least 10 minutes.
Anyway, some people are zappers (especially the one using smartphone). Ignore zappers, they will never be an interesting audience. Consider as if they didn't exist.
I aim for a niche of people who watch on computer, especially with a big screen, and that are really interested in the topic I cover. Then I have to try to keep them on my channel instead then going to my competitors.
Also my target is mostly people over 40, I am not concerned at all with the smartphone zapping generation

You are right about competition. I didn't think about that

You would be better with a short intro at the beginning though, with example shots and some kind of title. That will sufficiently introduce the viewer to what they're getting into.

 YouTube videos can be much shorter than 10 minutes. The only reason to make them longer is to try and increase ad revenue, which at this point with only 60 subs probably shouldn't be your focus.

Content is king. If you produce helpful, engaging, attractive content then the audience will come. There are no shortages of video and time lapse tutorials already on youtube.

No offense but what makes your content special and better than what's already available?

I have read somewhere in the internet (so it must be true!) that there are already a few people that are doing stock photography and footage.
