What’s the best camera for taking pictures for like tumblr, blogs, and internet marketing?
I like the colored Pentax K-r 12.4MP DSLR Camera’s, but i don’t know if they’re good or not? I’ve heard Canons are the best though, I’m looking to spend no more than $700 maybe $800. I like a lot of COLOR, so i like cameras that catch every color, clearly!
“tumblr, blogs, and internet marketing” call for only very simple cameras, however you will need some knowledge to make the most of it.
I assume internet marketing means product photography for selling goods on sites such as ebay, right?
For much less than your budget you could get a very nice bridge camera, which would you do perfectly for your needs.
Just make sure to study your user guide (manual) very thoroughly, plus pick up some books or tutorials about general photography – that will get you started.
Here are some tips about the product photography:
To take good product photos, you don’t need a special camera, you just need to pay attention to your details.
Here is how to do it the cheap way:
– Build yourself a light tent, it can be as basic as a card board box http://www.digital-photography-school.com/how-to-make-a-inexpensive-light-tent
– Use desk lamps with bright full spectrum (a.k.a. Daylight) bulbs
– Use white background paper and change it often to keep it spotless
– put your camera on a tripod
– set up custom white balance (read your manual on how to do that) for perfect colour
– if your product is tiny, be sure to use the (super) macro setting on your camera
– overexpose the photo to keep the whites white, instead of grey (because due all the bright light, your camera will want to under expose the shot). Either go fully manual, or use exposure compensation (read the manual if you don’t know how to do this).
– In Photoshop (or other editing program), put on the finishing touches – but you shouldn’t need too much since you are starting out with a very good photo.
What is a good blogging website for hairstyle type blogs?
A lot of people ask how i do my hair up and stuff, so i just thought perhaps i could start a blog with all the little tips and tricks i have picked up 😉
Starting a blog about hair style is a great idea!
I’ve been blogging for three years and I can tell you that the trick to starting a blog that reaches a large audience is to find a topic that is untapped. There are lot’s of bloggers blogging about baseball, internet marketing, politics but not many ‘hair style’ blogs.
If you really want to have a good brand, you should purchase your own domain ( http://www.blogtap.net/buying-a-domain-for-your-blog/ ) and then self-host the blog: http://www.blogtap.net/how-to-host-your-own-blog-in-5-easy-steps/
You can download free, open-source blogging software at wordpress.org. You can also choose to not buy a domain and not-self host (all free). WordPress.com is a good site for doing that.
Even if you are passionate about your topic, the readers will not always just come. That is why you should market your blog with social sharing sites, link building, guest blogging, SEO, etc. This may sound overwhelming at first but I started a blog recently to teach non-blogger people how to do this. Leave a comment and I will be glad to answer your question, sometimes with an entire blog post. You can check it out in the link below.
From the rule of thirds, to leaving a bit of headroom, to alternating sides for each shot. Interview composition can be a bit tricky. Especially, when shooting with your iPhone. Recently, we wrote a post about how to use a tripod …
I’ve discovered a new way (at least, for me) to create stunning looking videos with a white background. Inside this video, I’ll share
with you my new little setup and how you too can create videos like this. Welcome to another video! My name is Gideon
Shalwick. Inside this video, I want to share with you my new setup for creating white screen background videos. Something very similar
to the one you are watching right now. Up until this point, I’ve been using a Canon 60D DSLR camera to create my videos to get
this kind of effect. The reason I use that is because I had all these nice little settings for the white balance, exposure, focus and
the aperture setting. All those sort of stuff to create nice, professional looking, using a white background.
Recently, I got approached by Jules Watkins from iPhone Video Hero. He wanted me to have a look at his course that shows you how to
use your iPhone to create really wonderful, professional looking videos. So I thought I’ll give it a go and see what it’s like.
‘Cause up until this time, I haven’t really thought about using my iPhone as professional type of video cap up. I went through the course and this is the result. This is the result of going through the iPhone Video Hero course and creating this video that you’re watching right now.
What I’d like to do next is show you my setup because I’m pretty excited about it. One of the reasons I’m really excited is because
with your iPhone, of course it’s always with you. Whenever you’re carrying your phone with you, you’ve got a video camera with you, as
well. Not the case with a DSLR camera, ’cause you’re not always carrying that with you. It’s a little bit clanky, even with handicams,
it’s a little bit clanky to carry them around you wherever you go. For those opportunities here you just quickly want to record a video, you always have your iPhone with you, or a SmartPhone perhaps. I’ll talk a little bit more about that towards the end, so keep watching.
Next, I want to show you my setup; I hope you enjoy it. I hope you can see how simple it is to set up your own studio using your
iPhone to record white screen backgrounds as well. Here is the office space where I’m sitting. It is a very very simple setup actually. It
might look a little bit more complicated in the video but I’ll talk you through it. Where I was sitting before was actually in this chair; I was looking at my computer screen if I had some notes or presentation I was talking about. Over here was a little iPhone recording me. That’s basically the setup. The cord you see here is just the power cord and the data cord for getting the videos on toÂ my little MacBook Air here after I’ve recorded
them. But at some time, it’s powering my iPhone while I’m recording so I don’t lose any battery power. It’s pretty cool stuff. I will just show you a few other things that I’ve used for making this work. I’ve just tacked a little mirror here so that when I’m sitting in position, (actually let me just
sit down), you’ll be able to see me looking at the mirror. So basically, this allows me to see the back of my video camera, my littleÂ iPhone. That’s just a nice way to let me position myself while I’m recording. There’s a way also that you can do other things to start and stop the video. But for me, I just really got up overtime, press record on the iPhone. I’ve got a fancy cover here that really isn’t iPhone. It was not a big deal getting up, pressing on recording, come down and sit.
Other things I’ve got here are some lights. One is sitting over here; and another one over here. These are just two lights of 45-degree angles from where I’m sitting at my desk. And here’s my chair. If I move back a little bit towards where the camera’s position is, you can see a white background and a couple more lights just to light that up to make it nice and bright. Over all it’s a pretty simple setup; not difficultÂ to set up at all. There are a few little tricks you can do or use the right piece of softwareÂ to make it all look good in the final production. But I’ll share with you in a second more of what we can learn more about that. One thing that I forgot to mention inside the little “show and tell” before was the microphone that I’m using. Also, the tripodâ¦ The microphone here is Rhode Podcaster microphone that I just plug in to my MacBook Air. I’m actually recording the sound using Screenflow on my computer. Afterwards, during editing I put the video image from my iPhone together with the sound that I’ve recorded on my littleÂ MacBook Air. The iPhone is held just on a normal tripod. I just used actually the swivel container or holder to hold the iPhone. It’s not even a proper thing to do but you can also use other things like the GlifÂ little thing, but this one doesn’t work with my iPhone because I’ve got a fancy case on my iPhone. I thought I’ll share that with you, as well. There’s a ton of other things that you can do to make your videos look really amazing.
There are a few little tips and tricks to get the white screen looking the way that I’ve got mine looking; nice and clean and pure white.
But before I share too much, I like to share with you where you can get access to the course that I went through as well. It’s called iPhone Video Hero by Jules Watkins. Amazing, amazing course! It is my number one video course ofÂ the year, by far. I really loved going through
it because it has just really opened up a ton of other opportunities for me. In fact, I’m even considering getting rid of a lot of my professional production gear, or at least putting it into the cupboard ’causeÂ I’m not going to use it all that often. I’m just going to use my iPhone much more, especially for creating videos for my video blog. That’s a really big statement coming from me. And I’ve been a big fan boy of the DSLR
cameras. But so far, I’m really loving what I can do with my iPhone and I’m sure you will love going through the course as well.
Also, I’d love to hear your comments on what you think of using your iPhone as a professional video camera. And also, how the iPhone might
compare to a Samsung Galaxy or other SmartPhones of your choice. Perhaps, you’re not as much of an Apple fan boy as I am and you might
want to express your views in the comments area.
I’d love to hear from you whether it’s positiveÂ or negative, it doesn’t matter. This is where the discussion happens, where the learning happens. So I’d love to hear your thoughts. But if you’re ready to join the iPhone Video Hero course through my affiliate link below this videoÂ I look forward to chatting with you soon. Bye!
Which of the following marketing messages are consumers most likely to trust?
A TV commercial
An article about the company in a city newspaper
An Internet advertisement
A phone conversation with an employee of the company
Which of the following can help you evaluate the performance of your ads and other marketingstrategies?
Asking competitors what they think of your advertising strategy
Collecting secondary data about your target market
Asking customers how they found out about your company or product
Sending out a press release multiple times
Theres no better trust than 1 to 1. But, your question depends on the power of the advert. Plus, phone conversations are next best thing to 1 to 1, but only if they know you are calling. We all expect a sales call dont we, and we all hate em. To evaluate performance of ads? Ask the people who bothered to react why they bothered? Ask as many people as you can what they think of you ads and put the info together to get an idea.
Describe several B2B technologies and applications?
Your brother owns a gourmet food company named Grandma’s Treats, and he is faced with an interesting decision. He inherited your grandmother’s recipe box and adapted the recipes to accommodate his wife’s diabetes. You, your friends, and relatives couldn’t tell that his creations were low sugar, and word of his delicious baked goods spread throughout the community. Last year, he left his full-time job to produce and sell his creations to the public, caterers, and restaurants. Recently, one of his restaurant chain clients approached him to supply all of their locations. They also suggested that he could attract more customers and operate his business more effectively if he creates a website, advertises, and sells his “treats” on the World Wide Web. You have more business experience than your brother does, so you’ve offered to help him investigate this opportunity. Starting an e-business, or expanding a current business into the Internet, involves as much planning and risk
as starting or expanding a traditional business. Some of the things that you have to consider include:
The cost of the technology.
The design of the website.
The marketingstrategies you will use.
The choices of what to sell and how to sell it over the Internet.
The advantages of online communication with customers and suppliers.
The risks of doing business on the Internet.
You start exploring alternatives and seek the advice of experienced e-business professionals. There is a lot to learn, and you have heard many stories about people who have started e-businesses (or traditional businesses) and end up failing because they did not have or follow a solid plan.
You will strive to understand some of the basic principles of e-business in addition to understanding traditional business strategies so you can make wise choices as you bring your brother’s business into the Information Age. The varieties of tasks you will pursue are the development of an e-commerce plan, the exploration of different technologies that are used competitively in e-business, Internetmarketingstrategies, security, and ethics.
Describe several B2B technologies and applications, as well as describe several applications or ways B2C can use technology that Grandma’s Treats could utilize as part of an e-business strategy. Search the Cybrary and provide at least two research citations that illustrate examples of companies that are utilizing e-business strategies (e.g., B2B, B2C), and discuss how Grandma’s Treats could benefit from employing similar strategies.
