MSP Winter Mini-Sessions

Call your hair-stylist or barber; photography savings here!

Before we get into the details of this years first mini-session offer we would like to go over a few thing’s first.  We are changing the way we offer mini-sessions.

Instead of one day of limited slots we are now opening up the board to six day’s open for on-location shoot’s and one for studio shoots.

Also like to introduce the mini-club. Mini-Session participants will have exclusive access to items even when ordering on full sessions.

Celebrating the start of the mini-club we are excited to introduce twenty new items:  bamboo mounted prints, photo printed playing cards, sleek new rep cards, photo printed notebooks, iPhone binder style case, iPad sleeve, hard iPad case, snap-on iPhone cases, wood napkin holder, coaster set w/ wood base, note holder, wood arched bookends w/ photo display, ladies photo wallet, mens photo wallet, photo purse large / small, messenger bag w/ printed photo flap, photo printed license plate and photo jewelry; metal cuffs.

Another perk- High-res digital copies of images for mini-session participants on mini-session and full session orders are $10 ea.  Regular price $12.00 ea.

Want to make your mini-session cheaper?

Your session cost decreases by $20 per friend you refer to MSP and book their own time slot on the same mini-session offer.  Yes, you can refer enough people to get your mini-session free.  Right now this is mini-club exclusive.  Pending on how well it goes it may be merged into full sessions as well.

Photography Contest Results.

I forgot to mention that the photography contest I entered with a grand prize of $1,000 was finally judged after closing last week.  I did not win or make an honorable mention.  I am not bothered though and have already entered another photo into a free competition to earn $10 in my account so I may enter into a competition with a fee, which usually has cash prizes.  Contest subject was flowers, my entry that didn’t make the cut is to the left.

For your own chance to enter contests and possibly win, or try again, click here.  I invite anyone to share their favorite photography competition website in a comment.  As always thank you for tuning in.

More Discounts (w/ working links!)

It was brought to my attention that in my haste of posting the business cards discount post, a busy week that was, I had messed up the link.  For the proper link for 10% off your first Moo.com order click here.  As well the link is fixed in the original post.

On top of this my new business cards finally arrived!  With them came yet another chance for those new to Moo to save.

Use the following code: G2MSCG

They will prompt you for this code at the checkout.  Good for 15% off your first 50 card order.

Note:  You can only get 15% off a 50 business card order (if it’s your first one).  For larger orders use the above link for 10% off entire order.

Below are some phone snapshots of my new fancy business cards with a new feature installed!  Stay tuned for more savings, ideas and visual sauce from MSP.

Work Breaks and Edits.

I have had an exhausting weekend, I’ve really been hauling trying to make up for the few hours of free time I took yesterday.  I would have had everything under control if an email hadn’t came along with more “important” information (photos to be isolated) attached for the project I had ready to fall into place in the morning, also due in the afternoon.  Though they would prefer it monday it might be at their later convenience on tuesday due to the last minute additions and last minute reply of what exactly were the most important items to be displayed on the advertisement.

I realize at some point I’m going to have to make it clear that these type of last minute communications are not welcome and will in the future be left from the final product.  (I will and should enforce a 48 hour rule, stating that 48 hours before the due date no changes can be sent to me, any changes desired should be edited on their time from the product given with the information given in the original transactions).  This is all apart of taking control of your business, however setting up my new office has me more than occupied and other things are falling to the side lines, waiting to be addressed.

Soon I hope to have all back in order.

I edited some photo’s when I thought I was done with office work this morning (I’ve worked more than two thirds of my day away already).  I clearly should have checked my email before venturing into free photoshop time but I regret not the fruits of my playtime.

This is the fruits of a TFP session I did with a friend not too far from home.  This will be a great example for my TFP blog post (still coming soon).

Shown is a split version of two separate edits.

I welcome any questions on execution and processing.

I’m off to run some errands and tie up my night as quickly as possible so I can be up early in the morning to finish advertising work, and prepare for tomorrows meeting with Heather Nash from HMN photography.  Tomorrow is a very long day that I’ve been preparing all weekend for.  Tune in tomorrow (or tuesday if I don’t have the time) to find out what happens, more photo’s, and eventually that TFP blog post.

For now, please leave your own comments in advance with your views on TFP, I would really like to pull from some readers opinions to round out my own article.

Photo Contests w/ cash Prizes.

So I entered a photo contest yesterday, the stargazer lilly photo.  There is a cash prize for this contest and it was free to enter.  Check out I SHOT IT for more details.

Among other things accomplished I caught up on some serious internet appreciation.  It is amazing how many hours can be lost to following photos.

I want to know from you, what is your favorite photo sharing community?  Please leave your answer in the comments.

I’ve had a busy weekend of editing photo’s and favors for friends.  I even had to cancel some plans because I found myself over booked for my time.  I wish I could say I was ebbing onto this problem with clients, but hopefully soon with some help from sources shared with you earlier.

I edited yet another photo from the Bancroft farm series.

Click on the image for a larger view.

This and other recent works will be available in my web store finally later today.  I hope to see these end up in some neat places.

I also worked on the flower series for my mother, for mothers day.  I have a few options to choose from for her MD print, it’s hard for me to decide at this point.  For now to view the lilly visit my Flickr feed, posted to the right of this entry.

Coming soon, TFP; to do it or not?  Why?  A personal perspective.

Mixing it up. HDR & Symmetry.

Apologies for my absence yesterday, it was an insanely busy day between driving to and from errands, taking photo’s, editing photo’s and working on some projects I just didn’t have the energy when I found the time; somewhere around 1 am, to write.

Above is the visual fruits of yesterday’s labor for my Fine Art print galleries.  The images though HDR would hold far more detail if it hadn’t been so windy.  Tired of waiting for this endless wind to die down plus have a vibrant beautiful day without empty skies I shot anyway.  The irony is I believe I haven’t seen a blade of grass or limb on a tree move outside my windows this morning and it’s as vibrantly beautiful today as yesterday.

I was so excited to take photo’s outside again, to have the time weather and means to do so at once; the feeling was was exhilarating.  So much I may have formatted an entire card of cupcake photo’s I hadn’t uploaded to my computer yet.  I was at first sure I had but after the format was finished I got a sick feeling that maybe I was wrong… The results of yesterdays small road side session however is well worth whatever deserts were lost.

I stumbled upon a great composition I couldn’t ignore.  Below is a gallery of the various results from my processing.  I sometimes get carried away on just one idea.  I’m sure I’m not the only one.

If you want to know the steps behind a photo then like this post and leave a comment stating which photo you want to know about.

If I get 3 inquires I will write a responding post with the requested information.  Thank you for tuning in.
