The sky outside my window at work was pretty amazing this morning. I love when the clouds are huge and puffy. The sun tried to poke through a bunch of times. I took my first show and had forgotten to adjust the white balance so I switched and took another shot, I then decided to try multiple shots each using a different white balance option. When I went to choose the photo for today I picked all of them. I tried to move them so they were in the same place but matching up clouds is really tough.
|If I really want to make a photo that fits together well I need to use a tripod and a remote. Changing the white balance could be tricky though because I may move the camera slightly. The other challenge is the clouds. Clouds move and change constantly, but with a tripod I could make sure I focused on something solid and constant and use that to match up the images. I’m not ready to step up to HDR but I may try that out sometime too. Lots to learn with that though.||
Today I recorded my 4th episode of Geek Dads Weekly with Daniel M. Clark and Joe Magennis. We talked about my blog being hacked and the state of sponsored tweets. I really enjoy having such a great outlet to talk about different topics with some really nice guys. I hope that we can do a live Geek Dads Weekly at Affiliate Summit, that would be awesome.
Speaking of conferences, I was approached the other day to participate in the Evo’10 Conference. I said yes and also that I’d love to be the con photographer. Who knows, we will see if that will happen.
Today I decided to submit a proposal to speak at the Modern Media Man Summit in Atlanta. I submitted a proposal entitled Dad as the Digital Family Historian. I hope that it gets accepted because that topic is something that I know so much about. I believe that is what I have been doing for ever since I started blogging however it extends much further than that to printed materials, videos and other things to preserve the family history in this digital world. So, wish my luck.
