I finally put together a resources page that I’ve been meaning to do for over a year now. Maybe this is a sign of some spontaneous productivity and I’ll actually get around to updating my way out of date about page next. Probably not though.
It’s not as if I don’t enjoy answering the questions of “what camera do you use?” “what plugin do you use for your recipes?” and all the others that occasionally come through, but now all those answers are compiled neatly on my resources page which you can see in the navigation menu up top. Whether you’re interested in what I use photography-wise or blogging-wise, a lot of that info is there.
I’m particularly happy to share the photography section with you guys because so many times I think people assume you have to have the best camera, the best lens, the most expensive tripod….totally not the case. I’m a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to all those things. My camera model is sold at Sam’s Club, up until literally yesterday, I owned 1 lens which is pretty much the cheapest one out there outside of the stock one that comes with the camera. I have no fancy lighting set up (unless you classify fancy as 2 foam boards from CVS). It’s not about the equipment, it’s about your ability to use it. And, it also may be a tad bit about me being cheap.
So I’m happy to share what I use and by no means am I saying I’m the best. That’s laughable. But if you want to see progress look at this post (please ignore my excessive use of emoticons, apparently I love a good wink face) and then this post for comparison. Same camera, same lens only difference is time and practice, not money or equipment.
On the blogging side, you’ll find domain name info, hosting info, a list of “must have” plugins (according to me) and a really great tech support company for when shit hits the fan behind the scenes (it happens to all of us) among other stuff.
That’s what makes things churn behind the scenes here, hope it can maybe help you out too!
