Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: More Opportunities
Things are seemingly to be moving in fast motion around me and whizzing past, but I feel like I’m in slow motion, straining to keep up. It is a weird feeling. I know I can keep up and the key is going to be staying on top of everything. I’m sure I can do it.
I don’t know if many of you have heard of this or if it is more a Melbourne or Australian thing, but it is a great place to get information on events or places to go. I have just started writing for them and just had my first article published. I wrote it on waterfalls around the back of Lorne, surprisingly it is called Waterfalls Around Lorne. I was there on the weekend and got some great photos of the waterfalls.
They are more a subscription based thing and you subscribe and get emails about what is happening. I think they are hoping to go the wider community. If you want to visit the site, go to Weekend Notes.
Pro Blogger Podcast
The guy behind Pro Blogger and the Digital Photography School is doing some podcasts to help people work out how to blog. You can find the introduction to it here ProBlogger Podcast: Blog Tips to Help You Make Money Blogging.
Basically he is going to start a challenge for people starting on the 1st of July and will go for 30 days. Might be interesting to see how it goes and if it helps get your blog some more coverage. I am going to try it for my other blog, which I haven’t done anything on for a while. Hopefully I will have the time.
Digital Photography School
I’ve had another article published on the Digital Photography School. It is one that I sort of hinted at recently on Time Lapse Photography and I have written a tutorial on how I did it for dPs. Here is the link to it, How to Shoot and Process a Time Lapse Movie – Quick Method. It is a very quick way of doing it and I hope those of you that wanted to know how to do it will find it useful.
I also believe that today another tutorial I’ve written is coming out and when I know I will add a link. This one is on Watermarks, quite an extensive tutorial on a number of ways of adding watermarks to your images using Lightroom and Photoshop. I hope you like it.
It has now been published and you can find it here, How to Watermark Your Images Using Lightroom and Photoshop CC.
Meeting Up with People
In a couple of weeks I’m really excited that I will be meeting Kaz from daysandmonths. She is coming down to Melbourne and we are going to go to Apollo Bay for a few days to take some photos. Then we will be back in Melbourne to do some night photography and some other things. I’m sure we are going to run out of time, too much to do, it is going to be great.
Speaking of meeting people, there are plans for a bit of a WordPress Meet Up next year here in Australia, not in Melbourne, but in Sydney. We don’t know when yet, but we are starting the conversation now. One suggestion has been June next year. This is for anyone who wants to come. Could be a great event. So don’t be shy, start saving and come and meet us.
Today I have some photos that were taken almost three years ago on a couple of trips to Point Lonsdale. Lovely lighthouse there. I hope you are having a great time, maybe not as busy as mine. Take care.
