Here are a couple of tutorials on rule of thirds and tips to make your photos better: http://lioncubschool.blogspot.com/p/photography-tuts.html Stunning Digital Photography is also an amazing book to buy and they have some videos on YouTube also for free. We're in Southern Oregon practically on the Oregon California border and I've lived in various parts of Oregon my entire life. For lighting a window is perfect. Diffused lighting (cloudy days) are the best because you don't want direct harsh light because that will make harsh shadows. Get something white like a white poster board from the dollar store to bounce some of the window light back onto your objects or whatever you're photographing. Also having Lightroom (you can get for ten bucks a month with photoshop on the photographers special) will help you edit the lighting to be better, especially if you shoot your pics in RAW.
Hi April, thank you so much for your feedback! I really appreciate it and it came at the right time. I was wondering if maybe I needed to work more on my post, since I don't get people to interact with them. I think my problem right now is getting traffic and people to stick around and leave comments. I don't know how to make that happen.
I am thinking about going to WP because of the things you mentioned. However, I am very new to the blogging world and I'm not sure how to make the transition with out having to start from zero and losing all the work I have put into this bog (I will definitely look into it)
Btw, I subscribed to your blog, It looks amazing!
Is anyone else having a Wordpress issue with updating or publishing posts / creating drafts? The issue is that after I save, I get a POST NOT FOUND or 404 Missing page notice, when I try to VIEW POST. The post is actually there, and updated, but I need to go to the post to see it. Thanks!
I have been blogging for years, but was not very successful with my goals because I have been so afraid to 'put myself out there.' I live in a small town where everyone spreads rumors about everyone else and they don't seem to care whether it is true. So if I really put my blog out there and a rumor starts locally, I am afraid that it could ruin my writing career entirely. Does anyone else feel this way? How do you deal with the feeling of being judged and/ or rejected? Thanks!
Thank you. That is very encouraging. :) I appreciate this!
I have a HTML related question if anyone can help:
I am using Blogger for my platform and want to add a secondary menu bar with some drop down boxes for topics above my content, but when I use the app to make then I doesn't work correctly. Can someone help me with this?
