Freshening up with the Rain…

Power-of-Nature

Rainy days often inspire me to take a walk which then afterwards always seems to inspire a tidy up or refresh of something.

After a few years running this site under the same theme, I decided I’d have a fresh look through the available free themes with a photography basis behind them. This one took my fancy amongst a few others, so I am giving it a try for a while and see what I think. I’ll also upgrade to my Next Gen and Next Gen Pro plugins for this site and recreate updated galleries since I have had them and have been running them on my Store Site for a year now.

Unfortunately changing the theme removed the featured images for all of the blog posts. I’m pretty sure I’ve managed to fix them all, but it’s possible I’ve missed one or two, or got them wrong. Most likely it will only affect new readers, although I suppose they’re not to know what image originally went with which post and if you’ve already read the previously posted entries you won’t be going back.


Slowly But Surely…

Added a few more photos this week, it’s been a long time coming. Been on holidays this week and finally got around to updating the various blogs to latest version of WordPress and updating Themes that had them. After that I thought since being on a roll I should get some more photos up. I’ve also added 2 more pages, Landscapes and Portraits & Self Portraits.


Moving Ahead…

I’ve finally managed to devote a bit of time to getting this blog moving ahead. I’ve added some photos, and tried to tidy up the few things that didn’t seem to be working properly. Mostly this was to do with my unfamiliarity with the theme I’m using, Minimatica and how to make the most of it. Hopefully I’ll get the photos up for the other pages shortly. I know it may seem egotistical, but I’ve been putting copyright water marks on the images on the site, mostly because on the internet you just can’t be sure where something will end up. Not that I’m about to make any huge income on my photography (at least not in the short to medium term), but it’s worth imagining!


First Bloom…

Floral-Gold

I’ve started work on getting some shots up on here now, only a dozen or so for now. I’ve created some pages, but the form of this blog may change over time once I get a feel for it. I’m still yet to understand completely how this blog theme is meant to be used to it’s most effective.

But at this stage I’ve setup my presets for pushing out exports from Lightroom 4 at the correct size to quickly get them up on the blog.


Conception starts somewhere…

Serious

It’s been a decision that’s taken way too long, but now it’s done. At least for now! I’ve been tossing about the ideas of using the more popular photography display site, but decided that for now, the bulk of my ideas are going here; where I can manage it myself. This, at least for now…
