Nikon D300, Nikon 18-200 VR
I received an wonderful email yesterday from Schmap.com. They have included my picture above in the “Schmap Paris Seventh Edition”! I plan to be in Paris later this year and will look for a copy. The link to Schmap Paris with this photo is http://www.schmap.com/paris/tours_tour1/#p=3029&i=3029_87.jpg ….as they say in France – Voila! (sounds like Wah-La! ) It means there it is. LOL I love when they use that saying in France! Cracks me up! Another reason to love Paris!
I have always taken photos fo rmy enjoyment and memories. But we all feel as though we would enjoy seeing our work on a wall, frame, place of business, publication…basically anywhere! Why? Because it nice to get noticed. Photography is an art. Artists can choose to be unknown or known. I prefer known. We all should have goals. If you want your work published also – you must work at it. A great start is to read the Photographer’s Market (click on the title to take you to the Amazon.com site link). If you know you have great shots – go out and get them noticed!
As you all know by my posts….I use Nikon equipment. Of course there are many other brands out there, but I enjoy using only Nikon. So for those of you that are using Nikon – there is a great show I’d enjoy telling you about. I catch it every week. It is called D-Town TV. The wonderful hosts are Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski. Every week Scott & Matt post an episode online (it is also available as a podcast). They give you great tips/tricks/news/accessories for Nikon DSLR cameras. The show is fantastic and you can click on this link to visit http://www.dtowntv.com There are guest spots by one of my favorite photographers – Joe McNally. Joe recently published a wonderful book that I enjoyed reading and using for reference on using flashes (as one day I am eager to learn how to become a portrait photographer). This book is called The Hot Shoe Diaries (click on the title and it will take you to the Amazon.com link). Another guest spot is Scott Diussa – Manager of Nikon Professional Services (NPS). Scott adds more great tips to the show! I eagerly await each new episode! Hope you enjoy D-Town TV…have fun watching and learning!
