Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs
Every Tuesday I get to this post and I have no idea what I am going to tell you about, what is happening in my world of photography. There are some things so I think I can do a post on it this week.
Maxwell International Australia have sent me two more filters to play with and experiment with for the Cokin Z Pro series bracket and I will be heading down the coast in the next day or so to see I go with them. It is good using the filters, it gives me a much better understanding of how to use them. I think I can can see an Up for Discussion post on using graduated ND filters coming too, so for those of you that have no idea how to use them or why you would use them, it will help explain it.
I still have the macro lens from the same place as above, Maxwell International Australia, and I’m still trying it out. I was asked yesterday if I would do a post on how I am finding it, so I will prepare a post on it for you next week, I might do it on Tuesday. I have used it so much, it almost feels like part of my kit now.
The photos in this post were taken with the Tamron 90 mm Macro lens and are flowers in my garden.
I’m trying to get people interested in the workshops that I am going to be running up in the Mallee in just over a week. I have one in Swan Hill on Saturday the 8th of November and one in Hopetoun on Sunday the 9th. I didn’t realise that harvesting had already started and it seems that many who would like to do the course can’t, because of it. I guess that means I will have to go back early next year to run them for the people that could’t do them this time.
The workshops are really basic ones, they go right through how to use your camera, the different things your camera can do. Then looking at how to take photos with it. I call the courses Getting off Auto, I love the name, a great description of what the workshop is about.

Of course this all means that I am returning to the Mallee and will be able to take more photos up there. Not sure what I am going to take at this point, but I am hoping that I will get to the Pink Lakes again, I missed going there last time.
I don’t know if many of you have been to the Social Snappers website lately, but I have done a logo, sort of. It isn’t what I am good at, but I like it, but think it could be refined, so I will have to work on that. If you want to check it out, it the header for SocialSnappers.com.
Gift Vouchers for Christmas
I’m also busy with Social Snappers trying to get some dates down for first term next year, so I can advertise gift vouchers for Christmas. I should do the same for my One on One Photography Lessons. I just think they could be a great gift from someone who knows a person likes photography, but they don’t know what to get them. I will have to do Sample Vouchers to advertise them.
I think that is about it this week. I am doing lots, but not a lot of anything in particular. Today I am putting the Monochrome Madness post together, so if you haven’t got yours in yet, you better hurry. Here are my macro flowers.
