Getting the Magazine Out There

It has been a very crazy week and most of it has been taken up with trying to get this magazine out and get people to buy it, support it. The main problem has been the products page and it not displaying the images correctly. I am sure many have gone to the page and been confused about what to do. I’ve put a note to help, but I know that many people, me included, don’t always read instructions. We have decided that the best way to do this is to try using a different ecommerce plugin. There is now a shop page at the top, you can click here for it. It seems to work okay, except you have to give it a lot of information. I don’t have access to this information, but I will try and find out how to stop it.  Though I suspect you only have to do it once. I’m not sure, we are still trying to work it out. It would be great if people could try it …


MM 2-44: Monochrome Madness

Here we are again. Lots of great entries and it seems the change of day hasn’t been too much of a bother. Thanks. Our next theme for the first MM of March will be Straight. We had curves last time, so I thought let’s see what you can do with Straight. I wasn’t sure I was going to have a photo for today, but the night before last I went into the Docklands with a friend and we did some long exposures. The sun was setting in the background, but it created a nice effect.

Dynamic Range Magazine

This is a quick post to let you know that you can now purchase Issue 3 of Dynamic Range Magazine. Something did go wrong with setting it up. The Add to Cart button has disappeared and a very large image of the magazine cover is in its place. It is acting as the cart button so click on that, go down to the cart at the bottom of the page and you will see it there. I don’t know why it is doing it, but I am looking into it.

Julia Anna Gospodarou-1041

Introductions: Julia Anna Gospodarou

One of the reasons I am so excited about the next issue of Dynamic Range is because I got to interview a woman that I have admired for quite some time. I love her architectural work and so for you today I am giving you a little glimpse into the work of Julia Anna Gospodarou. I’m sure you will love it as much as I do. There is an amazing quietness to the work. Those of you who have been following me for some time know that I love that in work and it is something I try to get in my own. Hushed tones. While I tend to think of her as doing more architectural work she does do other things as well. I love the photos she has of snow. Another one of my favourite subjects. You could almost say another quiet subject. Her long exposure work is a great inspiration to me and I’m now reading the book that she co-wrote with Joel Tjintjelaar, FROM BASICS TO FINE ART, in the hope of getting …


Fun in the Sun as we catch up

Summer has arrived back in Melbourne and I’ve been out in it seeing what I can get with my camera. I don’t normally like going out in the sun, but the breeze in the shade has been good so it makes it bearable. The sun here can be so hot. My daughter had some citronella candles outside in the sun and they completely melted. I was almost tempted to buy some eggs to see if they would cook on the concrete. The strange thing is that it isn’t really that hot, it’s just the sun. Dynamic Range Magazine On Sale Wednesday We aren’t far away from publishing. I thought it was today. I got myself very confused.

MM 2-43: Monochrome Madness Curves

Here is the first theme for the year and what a great reaction to it. It has been wonderful seeing all the curves being sent in. A wonderful selection of images. I’m sure many of you have noticed that the post is 24 hours late, I’ve decided to reschedule it, and this will be the new time from now on. We will announce the next theme next week. I had hoped to get into the city and get some images of this bridge, but it just didn’t happen. I did take this earlier this year, and I think it is still curves, so this is my response to the theme.

Introductions: Beth Moon

Remember that friend of mine, you know, the one that is always introducing me to many great photographers? Well the photographer today is another one she also introduced me to. I would now like to introduce you to the amazing work of Beth Moon. The work is really stunning. While I was able to get permission to show her work, I wasn’t able to get her to answer the questions. She is well known for photographing ancient trees and from what I can understand she travels the world photographing them. I took this from her website, it is her artists statement. Many of the trees I have photographed have survived because they are out of reach of civilization; on mountainsides, private estates, or on protected land. Certain species exist only in a few isolated areas of the world.  For example; there are 6 species of spectacular baobabs, found only on the island of Madagascar. Sadly, the baobab is now one of the three most endangered species on the island. The criteria I use for choosing particular trees …
