For four years now i have had a blog and in that duration i have questioned myself many times on how valuable or useful a blog is to have. Over the last year it has become apparent that the blog does serve a pivotal role in establishing a career. The rewards of a blog are well worth the time invested into making and maintaining a blog. But with the constant changing of information, technique, and basic settings how does one go about setting up a blog? Which brings me to my next point.
A couple years ago Dad introduced me to one of his good friends and fellow instructor Rc Concepcion. I quickly learned he is one crazy guy but he is also incredibly smart. Rc knows more about blogging than anyone else that i know of. He spent hours of his own time doing research, learning coding and applying all that in different web scenarios so he could provide what he learned for the public. That way EVERYONE can have a blog and EVERYONE can show off their work. Because it is a photographic community, i emphasis community we share with each other. Our knowledge and experience are the best tools we have and what better way to show that off then with our images on our own blogs. Rc has made this so available over the years from Kelby Training and now for the first time he was written a book, Get Your Photography On The Web, filled with everything from the basics of making a site, to the appropriate settings for importing images, to the general maintenance and expansion of your work into the years to come. Best yet his book is filled with screen captures so you can see exactly what he is doing step by step. He wants you to learn, he wants you to show of your work, we all do. The best part of being a photographer is showing off those images with everyone else, we are visual people it’s how we learn and it’s how we grow. Pick up his book it’s well worth it’s weight in gold, I’ve already started reading mine and can’t wait to see what else is in there.
