Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Catching Up
Slowly but surely I am starting to catch up with everything. Things are starting to take shape and I can start planning some new things.
The Newsletter finally went out yesterday. Sorry, it took me so long to get it out. I will make sure that doesn’t happen again. I had problems with my computer and I couldn’t do any tutorials, but hopefully that will be fixed for next time.
I just want to mention them again as I have just had one person sign up, so it reminded me that others might be interested. They are a great way to get individual tuition. I charge $350 for five classes and they last for an hour to two hours, depending on how we go. We can look at camera skills or photo editing. It will really be directed by you.
I have decided to start writing some better articles for the Up for Discussion posts. I want to get better at writing and I need to experiment with you guys, so I am hoping to start writing better articles on photography for you. It is a direction that I think I would really like to go. Especially since teaching is so much harder than I thought it would be. So look out, hoping to do my first this Friday, one on Tripods.
I’m also thinking about making some changes to Social Snappers and perhaps expanding it to something else as well. I have been trying to advertise it here in Melbourne, but it has been great, people are looking at the excursions but not doing them. I enjoy them so much so I want to see what I can do to get more people to come to them.
I also want to start offering some Social Snapper one off classes, like teaching night photography in the city, or doing a class down the coast on photographing the milky way. Doing editing classes. Make it a more complete thing, rather than just going out and taking photos, but offering more as well.
I will announce more soon.
Trip to the USA
No more word yet, it looks likely I will be there early in September. I don’t know what it will be like there. I suspect I will miss the fall colours, too soon, but we can hope for a mild summer and an early Autumn.
Today I went back into the archives to look for photos. I found some that I remember taking, it was of Ripponlea. I loved going there, it is such a beautiful building, but it is the gardens that are lovely.
I’m off now, I will be out getting more photos today. I feel like I am doing it all the time at the moment, it is wonderful. I hope you have a good day.
