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.

Weekend Notes

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 scpointlonsdale-hpm7810-2wrote 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 scpointlonsdale-hpm7850-3to 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 scpointlonsdale-hpm7925-1Lapse 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 scpointlonsdale-hpm7805-2Melbourne 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.

Photos

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.

    June 30, 2015
    • Thank you Mary, that is such a lovely thing to say. I have been to Point Lonsdale many times, always great. Wouldn’t that be something if you could, I think so too, like lots of friends getting together but who have never met before.

    June 30, 2015

      June 30, 2015
  14. Beautiful shots throughout your post Leanne, and thank you so much for the links to your tutorials, which are really helpful. No wonder DPS keeps asking you to write more! I have to go back to Pt Lonsdale… Love your images.

    June 30, 2015

    Wow, you have been busy, Leanne. The WordPress meet up sounds great and I may even be able to make it to Sydney where do I find info ?

    June 30, 2015
    • I have Lee, but it is all good, I hope. I think the meet up could be great, at this stage just through here, we might have start a facebook page or something at some stage.
      Thank you.

      June 30, 2015

    June 30, 2015
    • Thank you Kaz, that’s great, we are going to have so much fun. I am sure we can find some piers. 🙂

      June 30, 2015
  17. Beautiful photos of the sky, and love how there was a bit of colour when you took them. All glowy and pretty. Congrats on getting the articles published, that is amazing. I had a look at the Time Lapse one on DP – I found the tutorial easy to follow especially with the arrows and circles. You make a good teacher 😀

    The Meet Up next year sounds very cool, even if it’s up in Sydney. Very, very cool 😀 Hope you’re keeping warm this winter. It hasn’t been too wet of late in Melbourne.

    June 30, 2015
    • Yes, very early morning Mabel, well some of them. Thank you, it is great to be getting some things published, I could get addicted to it. Thank you so much for taking a look at it, I’m getting better at doing them, and hopefully I will be a great writer of tutorials.
      It should be cool, yes, Sydney will be hard, but it should be fun to photograph something different. I am most of the time, it is a cold one this year. Went for a drive today and all we saw was fog, very weird. No not too wet at all.

  19. Leanne, just simply breathtaking work as usual. I love lighthouses. I am originally from the coast of Georgia in the United States. We have our own lighthouse there. It is so beautiful.

    Thank you for sharing these amazing photographs.

    June 30, 2015
    • Thank you Jarrod. I think a lot of people love lighthouses too. They are great, and it is good when you can go and take photos of them.
      You’re welcome, thanks for taking a look at them.

    June 30, 2015
    • Thank you James, have to love early morning cloudy skies. 🙂

      June 30, 2015
      • The best time is early morning – before the cows awake, and when the mist is still in the air. Just beautiful – if you get the timing right 🙂

        June 30, 2015
      • I agree, but the 2 hour drive there can be hard, haha. 🙂

        June 30, 2015
