A catch up for you
I haven’t been doing these enough, so thought we should nut out a few things.
It has to be said, I am struggling with this blog right now. I am not quite sure what to do with it, and as I’m getting more work else where, it is getting harder to find the time for it . I think since I stopped blogging everyday it has become too easy to say, nah I won’t worry about it today. I have to find some way of doing it so that it works with everything else I’m doing. I have some ideas, one is to go back to blogging everyday, perhaps schedule some, and make the posts shorter, so they are easier for me to do. I would also love to hear from you about what you would like to see here.
I am also completely open to people guest blogging, but not with advertising. I can never seem to find anyone who wants to do it, or no one ever contacts me, but I found this from a site:
Whether you are looking for more exposure, credibility, inbound links, social media exposure, networking opportunities or all of the above, guest blogging is a worthwhile content marketing strategy. While it takes dedication to consistently write great posts, the benefits far outweigh the time investment.
So perhaps it is something we should all think about. Maybe I could do a guest blog post for you in return, or something.
Trying out gear
I have been loaned the Samyang 100mm 2.8 macro lens to try out and it got me thinking of a new post I can start doing, one on trying gear out. It will be a review of sorts, but just a brief one. Really just some ideas of what I think of it, but nothing negative. If I don’t like a product, I won’t say anything about it at all.
I am finding as I do more and more writing that I am getting lots of products to review. There is no reason why I can’t share them with you here.
Long exposure workshops
I am going to be running my first long exposure workshop at the end of the month. I have enough of the Formatt Hitech gear, that people will be able to have an adaptor ring each, so that they only have to share the holders. I do have enough holders, but not enough filters. I want to set myself up so that I can do classes with around 6 people and they will all have their own filters and holders to use in it. You will also start seeing some blog posts that are just to advertise the workshops or one on ones. I need to stop being afraid of promoting myself.
Digital Photography School article
My latest article has been published at Digital Photography School and it is something I’m becoming quite passionate about:
I hope you enjoy it.
I thought I would share some more of the photos that I have had up on Instagram in the last couple of weeks. I feel like I don’t do this enough. I hope you enjoy them. Also, please give me some feedback on what you would like to see here. I can’t promise to do it, but if I can I will.
