Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs
There is a saying that I grew up with ‘head down bum up’ meaning working very hard. That is me right now. I have lots of work to get down in the next two weeks before I fly out.
I’m trying to market the magazine more, but don’t really know what I’m doing. It is all about learning I guess. I have done a page on my website for the magazine with a list of the articles and what each of them are about. I also added a link to where you can purchase it. Here is the page. I also put the magazine cover in the side bar and if you click on that it will take you to where you can purchase it.
Digital Photography School
One of the things I’m working very hard on are articles for dPS. I have to get quite a few done for when I’m away. All good though, I’m enjoying the writing. I’ve written three so far and have one more to do, well for this week.
‘I’m going to America’
I’ve got nearly everything worked out for it and these last few days emails have been flying around furiously working out dates, times and places to catch up with one another. It has been good as it has made it real. I feel a sense of panic almost as I realize there are things I have to get done before I go. Still, I can’t believe I will be boarding a plane in two weeks.
Stuff for the Trip
The lenses for the trip will be delivered any day now. That is exciting. I’m looking forward to trying out more Tamron lenses. I going to use them for the whole trip, which is going to be interesting, but I have complete faith in the lenses, I think Tamron make great lenses.
I also need to get some new SD cards. I’ve always used Sandisk cards, but I’m not sure I like the company or the Australian distributors for them, my experience with them hasn’t been great. It is hard to use a product that you don’t fully like, so I’ve been thinking of getting new ones from another company. I want to try Lexar cards, so I am wondering if any of you use them and what do you think of them?
I have to get back to work and get something done for Monochrome Madness and then put the post together, so busy day ahead.
Last week I was in the Mallee, but it was a quick trip and I didn’t get much chance to go anywhere much. One place I do really want to get back to is Lake Albacutya. I am going to have to see if I can organize it for the next time I go up there. I want to see how the area is recovering from the fires early last year. I have for you some of the photos I took there last year. Back to work for me.
