Quick, shoot it

It was a Saturday afternoon when my friends decided to go hang out at a park. We went out to eat first at a Korean BBQ couple blocks from our house.
After eating, we went to a park where I was amazed because this is my first time going to that park and also the size of it. It was huge with a lake and fountain in the middle of the lake. This park is great for fishing, ball sport such as basketball, football, baseball, soccer, and tennis. There is also a playground for kids and also for adults.

Also, I was amazed by the number of birds flying around. There are flying and walking everywhere. I had my camera at that time and I decided to load up and see if I can capture at least one bird flying.

With my camera and my quick panning of the bird, I shot this image.

It turned out beautiful, the bird was focused while the background is not. It took me a while to get this shot.

I am grateful that my friend helped me take this shot, they were running around just to get the bird flying.

Get Started with Photo Blogging

A photo blog can be anything that you want it to be, but you have to remember that it is a photo blog that means — photos.
Photo blogs have many options like asking users/readers for photos to submit, your own, pulled in from across the web, or combination of the three.

 

  1. To get started:Pick a Platform
    • Tumblr: A microblogging platform — it is a short-form blogging tool that is mixed as a social network. It is simple to use, free, and you can have a lot of readers. Users can follow your blog, “reblog” or share your pictures to their followers.
    • Blogger: Easy set-up, editable templates, basic photo sharing.
    • WordPress: Highly customizable, a lot of photo blogs plug-ins.
    • I recommend to use Tumblr because it is popular and users can see your photo blog immediately and gain popularity in an instance.
  2. Customize
    Remember:

    • Resize photos to same dimension
    • Be consistent with your posting schedule. Tumblr is great for this. You can have a queue that is posted with in a specific time or you can choose when to post it. Do not spam.
    • Make credits. This is a must.
    • Stick with posting photos only. Remember it is a photo blog.
  3. Promote
    • Get involved with audience
    • Share
    • Pay attention to what audience like about your blog
