New Video – Sharing Online
This was a great episode! We talked about topics like:
- How to share your photos online (I give some philosophical advice in addition to logistical, practical advise)
- Pricing your images and selling prints
- Getting inspiration from other online photographers
- SmugMug and how I use them (see my full SmugMug Review here)
- Memory cards and horror stories (I use Hoodman, which Leo thought was funny…hehe – but see my Hoodman Review here)
So, in addition to Lisa Bettany and Leo Laporte, we had on RC Concepcion, which was really cool. He just finished a book on this very subject, so he was a fount of knowledge. And if you guys don’t know who RC is, well then this is a great introduction to him!
Shuttle Launch Upcoming on April 29
I hope NASA doesn’t delay this thing again! Re-organizing planes, hotels, and cars is not an easy thing. Luckily, my “inside gal” got me some quick info so I was able to re-book the hotel near Cape Canaveral before it filled up. There’s gonna be a lot of people there… I should be getting in close, about three miles away in the media section. I’m excited about seeing the rocket launch, but I’m also worried about getting an interesting shot. I’ve been thinking about it a lot… I have some ideas but nothing solid yet.
Daily Photo – Coming Home to the Inn After Dinner
This is a nice feeling — this idea of walking to dinner and arriving back at the inn with family and friends just before it gets dark. I don’t know how to explain it, but perhaps you have experienced this too.
This is in the far northern part of the South Island if New Zealand. The town is named Nelson, and I think it is one of the five biggest on that island. But all of New Zealand only has four million people, and the vast majority of those are on the north island. I wonder what has happened to towns like Nelson since the big earthquake in nearby Christchurch. Maybe some of our NZ community readers can fill us in with some on-the-ground info.
