Link of The Day - Using a Short Lens

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRMey39M8o0&feature=player_embedded

I like these comparisons, that show the how objects in the frame (apear to) interact differently at different focal lengths. It's something I need to play with and practice more.

Pic Of The Day - Just in Time - Winter Round 2


Just in Time


With all the wintery weather I couldn't help but take a few winter weather photos, next thing I knew there where enough for another series.

So, Here we go it's "Winter. Round 2". I already have about 20 photos for this series, so I may start doubling up, just so it doesn't seem like an endless winter.

Best day yet on Flickr & other good news

Today I've had more flickr views than ever before (2145), which is great, but there have been a lot of great days for number of views and comments, favourites etc. The numbers just keep going up.

A few photos have been featured in different groups on flickr and Redbubble.

Still need to work on YouTube  & Vimeo more, some how TnT's Wedding Trailer has 10 times more views on flickr than on Vimeo or YouTube

Not sure how a video gets more hits on a photo site than a video site, but it seem I've still got a lot to learn about YouTube & Vimeo.

Google+ is still a bit of mystery, but I'm spending some time there and it's fun, and seems like it has lots of potential, just not sure how to make best use of it.

It's very exciting to see some reaction to stuff, ow I'd better get to work and make some more content.

Sunrise over our neighbourhood..

This is the 12th & final photo in the current series of sights & scenes in our neighbourhood. We are finishing with a sunrise because tomorrow is a new day and a new series of photos.

I'm sure there will be more nieghbourhood photos in the future, but tomorrow I'll be starting the series 'winter 2'.

With all the wintery weather I couldn't help but take a few winter weather photos, next thing I knew there where enough for another series.

Another Australia Day link


Drawing of a kangaroo in a 16th century manuscript?

Not exactly conclusive, but they speculate it could mean Portuguese sailors made to Australia before the Dutch and English .     Pretty cool.

I heard about it on Mysterious Universe, but the article is from the Sydney Morning Herald

Another Red Letter Day!

Red Letter Day

It's been another 'Red Letter Day' for views on my flickr account. Actually it was yesterday (Sunday) and it was the biggest day yet with 713 views.

There where  a few things conspiring to make the numbers so high (compared to what I usually get), but it's still nice to know that when the circumstances are right, people will respond.

Time for a Happy Dance!

Happy Dance!

(As mentioned recently) I've been making an effort to get more eyes on my photos & it seems to be working.  I've had very nearly 1000 views on flickr in the last 3days, a well as more faves & comments than usual.
 
These may not be earth shattering numbers, but I'm pretty happy with them.

The next job is to get some more traffic to my video content. This can be a bit more difficult. Watching a video is more of a commitment than checking out a few pics.

I hope to get a bit video traffic when I release a new project next week.

The plan is to have a trailer out my Monday in all the usual places.
