So, apologies for lack of posting – it’s been nearly a week since our last post but we haven’t made it out for any photography since then. The weekend weather as per usual has been pretty grim and we didn’t get out for any shots.
Also, during the week we have been working on a different project which has taken some time away from photography as we get everything set up. We used to do something called live streaming via Beam.pro. This site hosts channels for people to live stream their video games gameplay, playing music for people, creating art via graphic art, oil paintings, watercolour, jewellery making, cooking, you name it you can stream it!
We have a channel on there, JJ-TV (as in Jon Jenn tv!) which we decided to get up and running again. It gives us a chance to interact with people from all over the world and we have met some great people on there we would never normally get to chat with.
Basically you log into the channel, you will see the game we are playing with webcams of us in the bottom of each corner so you can see us and what we are doing and we can interact with you better. The viewers have a chat box on the right where you can type in comments, questions, whatever and we can see those comments and respond to them. It is a cool way of interacting with people.
It is great to see what people come up with to stream out to people. We have, in the past done a couple of photography streams where we look at the basics of how to use a camera and cover ISO, aperture, shutterspeed and how they work with each other and some composition and editing tips.
At the moment we are concentrating on getting the stream looking and running as good as possible and streaming the games we are currently playing. Photography may get a revisit at some point though 🙂
So that is what has been occupying us recently. But we haven’t forgotten the photography – we can’t, we love it too much. We have some time off next week – taking Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th March as holiday as it is my 50th birthday on Tuesday – eek! It gives us 4 days to hopefully get some decent weather and get out for the day instead of just a quick run after work to grab a sunset (if the weather complies).
I am also hoping during those 4 days to get one good day of sunshine so I can finally get some shots for my planned business venture. Without those shots I cannot build the website or create business cards. Fingers and toes crossed for this week. I mean, come on, it’s spring now! Time for some better weather. 🙂
I don’t have any new photos to post this time but here are a couple of old ones to keep you going! 🙂
Till next time…
