- Bought a tripod. Yes, another one, so that is...4 in my possession. Benro Travel Angel TRCB269, the new carbon-fiber model. This one is a "travel tripod," one that is packable, yet stable enough to use just to stabilize a normal load. Initial test say it works. No, I would do a money shoot with it, but if you are traveling, it may save a shot or 300, especially if you bounce and sway as much as I do. Of course, if you are not a tripod user, I don't know if there is anything I can say to persuade you to use one. To each his/her own.
- A friend starting up her business has issued a freebie for Oahu folk, or people that will be on Oahu as that time, anyway. From her Facebook page:
Hi Everyone (well... everyone that lives on Oahu ^_^)... Just a heads up for those interested. Within the next week I'll be posting on my facebook "fan" page a giveaway. I'll be randomly (yes, the whole pick the name out of the hat thing) picking 3 people to give a mini session to. The session will include 30 minutes of shooting ti...me and a dvd of fully edited / hi-res photos (along with the copyright release form so you can print to your heart's content). All you have to do is become a fan of my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/edit/?id=142403585780860&sk=basic#!/pages/Kaneohe-HI/Nikki-Jennifer-Photography-LLC/142403585780860 and wait until I post the official giveaway. Once I post the giveaway, if you are interested in receiving the free mini session... "like" the status and in comments... let me know why you'd like a mini session... and what kind of shoot you would like to do. Spread the word... let your friends know... if this is a big hit... I just may do another giveaway ^_^
I should say that this is a "heads-up." Just spreading the word.
