This week has started out okay! This is big for a chronic sufferer of Mondayitis! I spent the morning in my ‘other office’ and the afternoon working by my heater. Its probably not ergonomic. My boss would hate to know this is what I do (I’m working for a neurologist/chiropractor and I work from home.) But eh. Whatevs.
I am thrilled to say that after getting to 30,000 words and then deleting the whole lot, my novel is back up in the 20,000 word range and flowing well. It feels good to get in a good flow on a Monday! My lunch break was spent eating a fabulously fresh and healthy meal designed to help reboot my adrenal system which is up the creek and now I am planning an engagement shoot and a wedding shoot.
I know. Fun right! The wedding is an August Wedding so light is going to be a bit of a thing – but the wedding is earlier on in the day so at least I should have something to play with. The last winter wedding I shot POURED with rain. I’m not talking ‘opportunity for cute umbrella shots’ weather. I’m talking ‘sandbag your house’ weather. Not fun. But we managed to improvise and have some fun. But I am shaking my fist at the sky this time round and saying ‘dont you dare!’
Anyway, for all the photographers out there, I thought I’d post some favourite sites of mine.
http://photographyawesomesauce.com/blogs/photography-awesomesauce – This one is awesome for beginners. Heaps of information and a blog well worth following.
http://www.mcpactions.com/blog/ – This one has plenty of presets for photoshop and lightroom available for purchase, but I really love the blog. It’s totally fab.
http://www.thephoblographer.com/category/useful-photography-tip/ – I honestly wish I thought of the name before they did, but the Phoblogpraher is great. I follow their tips page – because I happen to believe that if you love your craft, you’ll keep up to date with trends, changes and technology that surrounds it.
Anyway, just thought I’d share those three. I’ll log back on in a couple of days to talk about iPhone apps and accessories for photography.
Awww heck. You know I’ll probably log on sooner than that because I’m procrastinating. So see you then!
