Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: The Magazine is Here

It has been a very stressful time the last few days. I have been sick, and trying to get my website ready for the launch of Dynamic Range. I have spent the last three days trying to get the e-commerce part of my website working. OMG, it doesn’t if they say it is easy, believe me, it isn’t abd wasn’t. I went through about 5 different ones until one of them finally took me by the hand to go through it. It is all up and running now.

Dynamic Range – Get Your Copy Now

We have seven articles for you, and I would like to this opportunity to thank all the contributors, Stacey, Mel, Chris, Loré, Sharon and Emily for their brilliant articles. They had faith in the magazine and wrote for it. Great quality as well and I’ve really enjoyed reading what they’ve written.

I would also like to thank another Chris for helping with the editing and my daughter Klara. She wants to be an editor so it was good for her to get some experience. Her lack of photography knowledge could be a problem at times, but I think she is going to learn.

I would also like to thank Julie for all her work putting the magazine together. Julie came up with the logo and has worked hard putting all the articles together. She has had to put up with me telling her what to, but she handled it well.

It is available to buy and we are selling it for $5. Here is the link to purchase it if you want to read it, Dynamic Range or click on the image below.

Dynamic Range_Aug15-1The cover again and you can see all the articles that are in it, a great range I think. I think there is something there for everyone. It is going to be great to see how it evolves over the coming months.

You can only purchase it with Paypal, but  you don’t need a Paypal account and can just do it with a credit card, there should be a thing at the bottom that will explain that.

There is also a new Facebook page for the magazine as well, Dynamic Range.

Here are some photos that from articles from the magazine. There is also a chance to win a camera bag thanks to Lowepro.

  1. Much success with your magazine.

    August 4, 2015
    • Thank you David, the response has been fantastic, people seem to like it.

      August 4, 2015
  2. “Discussion and comments are encouraged here, as long as the spirit is the same as this blog.”

    Hmm, are the commercial ads part of the spirit ?

    August 4, 2015
    • The commercials are so I can keep doing the blog the way that people have come to expect, I couldn’t do a lot of what I do if I didn’t pay WordPress extra and people don’t like donating money, so I get a small amount of money from the ads, it helps pay for it.

      August 4, 2015
  3. Wishing you much success in this publication of Dynamic Range. What a worthwhile undertaking! And with your input, it should be as wonderful as your blog.

    August 4, 2015
    • Thank you, it has been a massive task, bringing it together, but the final product has been worth it, who knew I could do something like this.

      August 4, 2015
  4. Congratulations Leanne, it is so nice to see the finished product after working with you on the preparation and editing. You should be very proud.

    August 4, 2015
    • Thank you Chris, thank you for your help with it as well. I am rather proud, can’t believe I actually did it.

      August 4, 2015
  5. Well done and congratulations on publishing the first edition of your magazine. I wish you every success with it.

    August 4, 2015

  10. Wow, congratulations, that’s exactly what was needed , A Women photographer Magazin. It looks very promising, I love the cover , very dynamic….. I am also trying to build an ecommerce site , any huge tips so share??? Is your’s on wordpress???

    August 4, 2015
    • Thank you, we hope so, we hope women will support it and want to get it.
      Yes, my site that has it is a self hosted WordPress site, I had to pay for a plugin in the end, and got WP eStore, but the support was great, and they helped me to get it up and running.

      August 4, 2015
      • Thank you so much Leanne for your respond, so one more question, did you have to pay for a business membership which almost $ 300 a year, or just what ever for the plug in. Still such a novice at that, probably as you have been. Thank you so much for your patience and willingness to respond to me.

        August 4, 2015
      • No, I didn’t pay that much, way out of my budget, I paid the $50 and the then extra for the tutorials. That one did everything I wanted it to do.

        August 4, 2015
      • Thank you Leanne 🙂

        August 5, 2015

    August 4, 2015

  17. Whoo Hooo! It’s here. I went and purchased my copy. I’m so excited to see the pictures and check out the articles. You can tell that all of you worked hard to bring this together. I do have one question- it’s probably a stupid one…but… After paying for the magazine how do I view it? I hope you feel better soon!

    August 4, 2015
    • I found it. It went to my “junk mail” folder! I just skimmed through it and I have only one word for you. “WOW!” it looks fantastic, I can’t wait to sit down and read it at a leisurely pace. I feel like it’s Christmas morning! lol

      August 4, 2015
      • Oh good, sometimes you don’t get an email, I didn’t get one, something weird about my email set up.
        Oh thank you, so glad you liked it Kirsten. It is a bit like that, so exciting.

        August 4, 2015
    • It is, it is. We have worked very hard, and I worked so hard I got sick. I know that you got it, so I hope it is all good, thank you Kirsten.

      August 4, 2015
  18. Super !!

    August 4, 2015
  19. Congratulations on your publication! A few years ago I met the daughter-in-law of Lotte Jacobi. It was amazing to learn about her, she truly was a pioneer. I hope you are feeling better. It is no fun being sick when you are on deadlines!

    August 4, 2015
    • How amazing, must have been interesting. Thank you, and yes, I am sure I will get past it soon, it isn’t but it always seems to be the way.

      August 4, 2015

    Yipee!!!!!! Congratulations Leanne and all contributors to this magazine and all your hard work in getting it to through to birth. I hope it has a long and fruitful life. Off to get mine now.

    August 4, 2015
    • Oh yes Lee, Yippee, can’t believe we got it out. Thank you, I hope so too, I really hope women photographers do get behind it. Thank you so much.

      August 4, 2015
  21. Leanne, congrats on the launch. I responded to your earlier survey as to whether readers would buy the mag, and have just followed up on that feedback by ordering a copy. Looking forward to it. – 🙂

    August 4, 2015
    • Thank you so much, I am sure you will really enjoy it, everyone has been which is great.

      August 4, 2015
  22. Congrats Leanne! So glad you’ve made it!! And sorry you haven’t been well, I hope you’re better soon.

    August 4, 2015
  23. Congratulations Leanne, after all of that hard work, you have a beautiful first edition magazine. Wishing you a world of success.

    August 4, 2015
    • Thank you, it has come out much better than I thought it would. Thanks for your contribution as well.

      August 4, 2015
  24. I hope that it goes well.

  25. Reblogged this on Julie Powell – Photographer & Graphic Artist and commented:
    I would just like to say congrats to everyone, editorial and writers/ photographers on a great job………and many thanks to Leanne for her kind words. It was a lot of fun, can’t wait for the next issue

    August 4, 2015
  26. Hi Leanne, just bought a copy, is it delivered via snail or email?

    August 4, 2015
    • You should get an email Sharon, if you don’t get one with the link in it, check your spam folder and if you still don’t let me know.

      August 4, 2015
      • It came through thanks Leanne, I was being a bit impatient. Looking forward to reading it tonight. BTW I read your writer’s guidelines and there was no mention of payment. Do you have a rate? thanks, Sharon

        August 4, 2015
      • That’s great, glad you got it. At this stage there is no money for writers, unless the magazine really starts selling well, I will work out a rate, but so far all the writers are doing it for free, and what money is made is paying for a few expenses, like the editor.

        August 4, 2015
      • Thanks for getting back to me on this. I would love to contribute to the magazine but the time and effort required to research and then write a piece between 1000 and 2000 words is more than I can justify for no remuneration. It will be good for people who have not been published I suppose.

        August 4, 2015
      • I do hope that in the future we can pay for them, but it really depends on how whether or not the magazine actually makes any money really, we live in hope. So maybe you can keep us in mind.

        August 4, 2015
  27. Well done it looks fantastic…. 🙂

    August 4, 2015
    • Thank you Kara. 🙂
      It’s good to hear that people are enjoying it as well.

    August 16, 2015
    • Thank you, it is quite amazing, almost can’t believe it myself that I managed to do it. It will be nice, we really hope women photographers will get behind it and support it.
