It has been a crazy couple of weeks with the trip to Tasmania and now I’m trying to settle down and get back into some work.

Dynamic Range Magazine

Of course, that is always going to mean the magazine and getting the next issue ready for you.

The number of subscribers is slowly increasing which is really good. Remember you can subscribe from the shop page.  You can also buy a copy of the magazine there, if you haven’t already.

Recurring payments. It seems that Instagram automatically sets up recurring payments for everyone, I can’t stop it when you subscribe, but I will go through and cancel them for everyone. We will let you know what will happen with your subscriptions.

New Experiments

I have talked to you about this before, but I’m thinking of doing some tutorials to sell. I get asked all the time about processing images, and I’ve been thinking about doing a series of video tutorials.

Initially I was going to start at the beginning, but then when I thought about that I realised that there is so much out there on that already. Why contribute to the glut of editing tutorials out there. However, it did occur to me that people like the way I edit, so maybe that is what I should concentrate on that.

So thinking on from that I am going to start with one video, and then see how that goes. If it is a flop, there will be no more. However, if people like it, then I will come up with others.  With this new website I can sell them here. I can put it all together in a zip file, so there will be a video tutorial, notes for what is covered to help out later on, and maybe some images for you to work on as well. Will have to think about how to do that.  So will hopefully be a nice package to get.

The next thing is how much to charge.  If you have any thoughts, let me know. I will have to do some research on what others sell theirs for.

Instagram Photos

I haven’t shown the photos from Instagram for a while, but you have seen many of them already. Here are the ones that I may have shown, but have reworked, or others that I haven’t put up here at all.

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 out and see how they go.

This is still all new and I’m so glad that many of you have supported us and continued to buy the magazine.

So now taking some advice from Melissa and her article on Marketing in the latest issue:

Some decisions have been made recently and one of them is to do my posts on two blogs. This one and the main one I’ve always used. I would like this one to become my main blog, and in time I hope everyone will find their way here.

Some other changes are going to happen as well. I plan on cutting down on how often I blog. I think I will go to four times a week, and see how that goes. I need to find some time to do some other things, which I am excited about. My posts on Friday are going to combine my Bits and Bobs post as well as looking at images I have put up on Social Media.

Social Media

Social Media seems to be a very important aspect for any photographer these days. With that in mind I’ve been trying to use it a lot more and putting more photos on certain platforms. I have been building up Instagram and trying to put one or two photos up there each day. It has been good going through all my older images and seeing what I can put up. I have also worked on some new images. I really like how my Instagram account is looking. I hope you enjoy the new and old photos.

Dynamic Range Magazine

There have been some people who have asked that I show some images of what the inside of the magazine looks like. Here are four samples of pages that can be found in the latest edition. If you haven’t got your copy yet then here is the link.
