Day 72 – Flower

December 1, 2009 2 comments


Just a simple quick image of a flower. I was away most of the day today without my camera and had to do a bit of a rush shoot and post. It’s a bunch of flowers from the supermarket, a house plant in the background and an off camera flash shot through an umbrella.

I downloaded another one of David Duchemins ebooks a few days ago and will be reading it in bed shortly. I expect the images will be up to his usual excellent standard.

A seven hour drive today gave me plenty of time to think about different ideas and to take on board what I have read in Dane Sanders book. I just need to write some of them down now before I forget.


Day 66 – The Clearing

November 25, 2009 2 comments


I can’t believe I never noticed this before. I walk right past it a few times a week during my lunch break but never saw it before today. I think I’ll bring my tripod with me to work some day and get this properly. It’s quite dark here and I found it hard to get an image with sufficient depth when hand held.

After yesterdays post I was about to log off and go to bed when I read a tweet from Dane Sanders. He was about to have one of his live coaching events with ex-googler Jennifer Yew. Well I had seen one before and decided it might be worth staying up to watch it. Boy am I glad I did. That 30 minute show possibly did more for me than I did for myself over the past week or two. Half way through the show I realized I forgot to order his book the last time I was on the site. I checked amazon and had the book in my cart waiting until the show was over to finish my order. Then came the best bit, Dane announced that the book was going to be offered at 50% off on his site until Friday 26th November. All you need to do is watch the video to get the promotion code at the end. It’s worth watching for the advice alone.

I ordered the book and got a pdf version of it too while I wait for it to be delivered. Great advice in there from what I have read so far.
