Some Stuff to Catch Up With
Friday again and another post on bits and pieces, though I have to say trying to come up with new titles all the time is hard. Still it is a great way of giving you information about what I am doing or up to.
I heard back from one of the competitions and I’m afraid I didn’t do very well. Bombed out really, though I am trying not to take it too personally. I did write a small post on my experiences and what I thought about it all over on the News Blog on my website, Photography Competitions Vs Art Competitions, so good place for you to find out more.
You know I am up in the Mallee right now, but I don’t know if I told you was going to be running a workshop on Night Photography up here. The workshop was organised by Wimmera and Mallee Tourism and the Yarriambiack Shire. Well the workshop was on Wednesday night and we played around with taking photos at night, and photographing the stars. It was a great night, a busy night, but I think everyone enjoyed it. The photos in this post are from that night. I am going to be doing a post over on the News Blog today sometime on processing the star photos that I have been doing, so if you are interested in that, keep an eye out on the News Blog.
Crash Course On Google My Business
Mary McAvoy, who wrote those great posts on SEO for Photographers Part 1 and Part 2, had some news to pass on, it is an article from a free online magazine about Google and your business, so if you are interested here is the link, Crash Course On Google My Business, hopefully that works. Though I think you have to sign up for the newsletter to get the whole article. I did and it hasn’t been a problem.
Up for Discussion Posts
I have organised some more guest writers to give us some insights into some things. It is great to find people who are experts in a particular area and I hope you enjoy what they say as much as I do. It is great having that sort of resource here on the blog for us. If you know someone that you think might be able to write a great guest post for us, then please let me know. Always happy to find new people. Remember it has to be photography related, not about selling their own products, and should be informative.
I think that is about it this week. My mind is full of the Pink Lakes and Lake Albacutya, the Milky Way and Sunsets. Unfortunately the weather hasn’t been great up here this time. We aren’t seeing much of the sun, which doesn’t help a lot when you want to photograph the stars. We were going to go out last night, we saw the stars were out, and by the time we were ready to go out, you couldn’t see any. So disappointing. Hopefully we will get a chance tonight. Fingers crossed.
I am going to put the above images and a couple of others from the night in Hopetoun into a gallery. Don’t forget to check out the News Blog for some tips on processing some star photos.
