It does seem like this year is all over the place, that I have my fingers in so many pies hoping that one of them will pay off and be fantastic for me, a great opportunity that leads to other things. It is a bizarre world we live in. I’m not complaining, okay maybe a little, but I guess the main thing is that I am still trying to get me and my photography out there. I guess I hope that persistence will pay off eventually.
Behind the Scenes
I’ve basically started a link up for photography bloggers to show their behind the scenes. The post does not have to be primarily behind the scenes, it can be your interpretation. All you have to do is add your link to your post by clicking the blue button at the bottom of this post: Behind the Scenes and comment on the post before yours with constructive feedback or a friendly compliment, and the next person will do the same to yours.
If you are interested in taking a look the link is there.
Individual Online Classes
I received another student to do some learning online the other day. It is fun doing them as each student comes to me with different problems, or different things they want to learn so it is very varied, it is something I really enjoy doing. I have my new computer all set up and got to use my new webcam today for a session with a student. If you are interested in learning photography or photo editing from me check out my page on Online Classes.
I have had a meeting with Banyule Council about my book and the direction it should go in. We are going to look at seasons and how the land looks through the seasons. It is very exciting and I’m very keen to get down to Banyule Flats and start doing some photos again.
Maxwell International Australia are lending me a Tamron 150-600mm lens to try out and review. It will be good to take it to the flats and photograph some birds. Nice to see how it handles it.
It has been suggested that I should consider doing an art book of my fine art images. I wondered what you thought of that, if you would like to see me produce a book on my special images.
I was also toying with the idea of writing a book on taking photos, my way of course, but not sure about that yet.
I think I like the idea of writing as well. Though with everything else who knows.
I’ve been thinking about doing the Social Snappers for free and then adding some extra classes for people to do. I am finding that I am having trouble getting people to do them, and I am sure that part of the reason is because I don’t have a network of people who know me here, so maybe if I do them for free, then people might do my other classes. I thought I would try it for a term and see what happens.
Today the photos are from my old cycling days, well when I used to photograph cycling. I was taking photos at an event down on Phillip Island, so some of the photos are of the grand prix track down there while others are from one of the points on the island. Not sure about them now, but it is fun to go back and look at them.
