I often get asked about photo locations in Lethbridge. While there are many public or semi private ones that you can use without booking or paying there are more and more that are starting to charge. Below is a list that I have contacted to check on any requirements. I am not including private locations as this changes so fast, will keep it to ones that most clients ask about. Will update as I get more information……. (update June 14, 2018)
If you are going to take the time to do any marketing of yourself or your business “Do it right”!!! What do I mean? Simple if you are running a site on social media or even your own website give people the information that they need easily!
Getting a great picture is as much good fortune as anything. I know many great photographers that understand their camera inside and out but they do not get any really great images. I know other photographers that struggle to understand ISO and shutter speed but they get lots of great images. So why the difference???
Learning, Learning & Learning
I have been learning a lot with the build of my van……… it has been a lot of fun, a challenge and I have to say again FUN!!! I love learning new things and building the van has really challenged me to learn. Looking at the van today I am 100% done with the functional part of the build. I could leave tomorrow and drive anyplace in the world and the van would do what I want it to.

So you are trying to figure out if it is time for a new camera, what are some of the things to consider?
Finishing the small things
So doing the initial build was easy, but I am still doing the little finishing that needs to be done. As mentioned before I hate to preplan the build to far in advance as things seem to change as the build progresses. So I had a pile of small finishing projects to work on that I managed to get done over the past week.
Several little projects are now done……
I hear so often about people that put all their faith in what Google tells them. If something is wrong they Google it, if they want to know how to do something they Google it and while I do the same thing when I am stuck I do it with a lot of caution. It is not just Google that can be an issue it is any place that offers free information or FREE courses and classes. The other day I listened to a guest on the radio tell about the pitfalls of listening to on-line results with respect to medical diagnoses and how much someone can be messed up by the results. If you want to know how bad it is just Google something like “Red bump on arm” and see the results, anything from a cancerous growth, to a steph infection, to a poisonous spider bite when all it was was a mosquito bite.
Had a great day, birds co-operated, weather was amazing.

After reading many posts on various forums about printing and using color profiles (canned VS custom) it got me thinking. I decided to do some tests to see the difference between provided profiles from Epson and paper manufacturers and the profiles that I make.

Van electrical Part 2
Once the wiring was done to get a basic van electrical system running from the van battery to the new house battery it was time to hook up the accessories to run the van’s electrical appliances. I was doing this work to power the fridge and the Espar heater now and for some lights and a fan later on.
