50mm – Thank you and an intro to Festivale Week!Posted: April 3, 2012
First a Thank You and a Welcome!
Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the March 2012 Challenge: Water – when people participate, it really makes me feel like this blog is worthwhile! The winner will be announced in 1-2 weeks time.
Also, welcome to all of the new 50mm Experiment Blog Followers. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve noticed a number of people decide to follow the blog – thank you as well! I hope that you get something out of reading and looking at the photos on this blog. Most of all, I hope that you participate in the challenges I will be posting every month.
I am still currently on Kangaroo Island and mostly out of internet range therefore this weeks posts will again be pre-written and I will respond to any comments as soon as I get into range!
I have noticed that although the blog has attracted many followers, there’s a lot of people who have yet to participate in the 50mm Challenges. Once I get back to civilization, I will working towards finding out why that is, and what I can do to entice people to participate. So if you’re a reader but haven’t taken the plunge into the challenges, have a think about why that is, and what I can do to improve the challenges.
So what’s on the menu for this week?
A couple of weeks ago, I found out that I won second and third prize in Launceston’s Festivale Photo contest. It was a great feeling to be recognized for my work!
Alas, the photos I submitted were not taken with my 50mm. The were taken with my 85mm f1.8, so I can’t really include them on this blog! So this week I will be posting photos from Festivale (a food/wine/entertainment festival in Launceston Tasmania) that were taken with my 50mm f1.8.
First post comes tomorrow.
