Catching up and looking ahead
My first post like this for the year and while I don’t have a lot to say, I want to get back into the habit of blogging. So this won’t be a long post.
I’m sure many of you have noticed that I now have a new theme on my website. There are still problems with it, but I haven’t really had the time yet to sit down and really work it all out. I am hoping that things will start to calm down soon and get back to normal.
One of the major things I don’t like is how the blog feed looks. It shows the whole post and I think it would look much better if it were just a summary. I have ticked that box, but it hasn’t made any difference. I am not really sure I like the home page either, so I will be playing around with that some more in the next week or so.
Good to hear from a few that they like the way the galleries show and even better to see that people have been commenting on the photos in them.
As with all things it is a work in progress and I will continue to work on it and improve it.
If you normally get emails when I do a new post and haven’t been getting one you might need to resubscribed. It seems when I installed the new theme it changed some of them.
Dynamic Range Magazine
Work will begin on the final issue soon. We have all the articles worked out and layout will start soon I hope.
It was a disappointing outcome for the magazine. I guess I really thought women would get behind it and support it, help them as well, maybe give them a voice. I will not be trying anything like that again. I’ve tried to improve things for women, listened to what they want and then tried to put things in place to help them get more recognition in the photography industry, and I’ve always been left in the cold, so to speak.
The last issue will be published in February and that will be it.
I do want to thank the people who got behind it and purchased it. I was very happy to hear how much you enjoyed it.
This is where I am going to be concentrating most of my efforts this year. I’m hoping to get published in another magazine in a couple of months. I will also continue writing for Digital Photography School. I would like to try some more books. I feel like I have the confidence now to really write a book.
I also hope to practice more writing on the blog with some articles about photography related topics. I just need to organise myself, and that seems to be something I struggle with the most.
Today’s images were taken two years ago on a hot day in January, much like what we are getting now. The air conditioners are not being turned off much. It is also horrible weather to go and take photos in. I will have to start getting up very early to go and get images.
Anyway, many of these are quite different for me, they have people in them, something I usually try to avoid. We have a few hot days ahead and think I will be spending my birthday indoors with the air conditioner on. I hope the weather is nice where you are.
