Web Fest Results so Far

Web Fest Results so Far

| July 11, 2016 | Reply

Web Fest Results so Far I have only submitted to five festivals, as there usually isn’t a perfect category for Late Bloomer, which is educational entertainment, or Edutainment. Miami Web Fest had this category and I won. Submitting to festivals costs money, and attending out of area fests, especially out of country fests, costs a […]

YouTube suggests vlogging to build audience for your channel. Travel makes a great excuse for vlogging. Young people are […]

Rain barrel set-up is harder than it looks, as witnessed in my latest Late Bloomer!

Today I am remembering a mentor, photographer Jimmy Moore. Jimmy was a top New York fashion photographer in the 1960’s and 70’s, who went on to direct commercials.
