I'm Speaking at Social Media Camp 2011Super Excited! It’s only days away!  What’s “it” ? Well, I posted about this in February, that I had been selected as a speaker for Social Media Camp 2011 in Victoria.

I’m considered “alumni” … having spoken at Social Media Camp 2010 as well, where my topic was “Small Towns, Big Ideas” and how Social Media can level the playing field for everyone in business, especially for those in small towns and for those who live rural.

For 2011 I’ve got a Super FUN topic! I’ve Got an iPhone, Now What? Photography apps and Sharing Images via Social Media”

 

Here’s the “official” blurb:

My Session Title: I’ve got an iPhone, now what? Photography Apps and Social Media for Sharing Images.

Session Extract😕 SHOW. Like. Trust. Images sell.

Almost everything online is sold and marketed using text content and/or images. iPhone and cell phone photography is growing at a rapid pace, not only as an artistic tool for creative expression, but as a viable tool to be used for business and marketing online via Social Media and image sharing. Brenda’s tool of choice is the iPhone 3G. Yes, the iPhone 3G. She has chosen to challenge herself by not upgrading to the new and shiny, bigger and faster is better, but to create stunning images using the 1st generation iPhone camera. There is no shutter speed or aperture, and Brenda knows that the most FUN and creativity come from living in the unknown and letting go of control.

What will you come away with? ( Oh my goodness, I hope you do 🙂 P.S. Here’s the speaking schedule in case you want to sign up for my session.

  • Learn tips and tricks on how you can improve your iPhone photography skills, using a few basic elements of fine art and design
  • Learn the basics of how to make images “pop” using a few of Brenda’s favorite photography and art apps.
  • Brenda will also share how, why and which brands are using iPhone photography, and why you too, can join in this super FUN and powerful way of working and sharing online
  • Learn where you can share your images online using social networks
  • Although the session is geared to iPhone photography, many of the points will be applicable to any cell phone photographer and everyone is welcome to attend whether you have an iPhone or not
  • Brenda will present images she has created that show how she used apps and her iPhone as an artistic tool
  • How you too, can tap into the FUN and joy of iPhone photography

So if you are at Social Media Camp 2011 please do come and say HI before or after my session, would LOVE to meet you in person and get connected on Twitter as well, if we are not already 🙂

Now how the heck did I do this? ( * iPhone Photo Art )

Although I’m a few days behind in my posts, for my 50th birthday iPhone Art and Photography project, I’ve taken way more than 50 photos since beginning on April 13th, 2011.

The challenge of the iPhone 3G camera, the challenge of finding something new each day to photograph that excites me or calms me, and the challenge in choosing daily, what might have meaning for you, has been an incredibly joyful process.

The image below comes from my forest walk this morning, and it is almost better than what I saw in the forest, yet at the same time, when I look at it, it’s almost as if it takes me back there again in a flash … but it also takes me to a new place that I’ve never been before. Fascinating. What do you see?

So, here is Number 23 of my 50 Photos 50 Years iPhone image project and lucky me, I live within minutes of this forest walk, and no matter how many times I walk it, it changes every day. When in the forest, what I see, what I feel, what I find and how I view it, changes daily. That’s what I love about nature. It’s just never the same.

Going to the same place, never reveals the same image, if you just look, and SEE.

Here we go … (50 photos at one per day is a lot more than I thought! LOL) … More Vancouver Island images … LOVE the beauty that surrounds me on Vancouver Island, and the fact that it changes every single day. Number 17 of my 50 Photos 50 Years iPhone image project. A friend of mine commented “Deluscious!” on this photo, and I like it! It’s a perfect description and I’m enjoying this 50th birthday photo adventure all the way, every day.

Ding. Dong. Number 14 of my 50 Photos 50 Years iPhone image project : (* Along with loving the challenge of what I call a “crappy” camera in the iPhone 3G, I LOVE a challenge of capturing simple, everyday objects in an interesting way, like this bell which hangs at my front door. Ding Dong combined with magic lighting at supper time produced a lovely result 🙂
