#6 and Learn Music Rights

Number  six is one of my  2011 Photography Goals, I can check it of my list!

 I decide to go with Vimeo as a option to share my videos and slideshows. Vimeo is easy to work with and all you have to do is upload your video or slideshow  to share with others.  I use iMove to create a slideshow for my photography and Triple Scoop Music to set the tone for the slideshow. Thanks to Dane Sander's live webcast episode while back, I learned the right of purchased music from itunes or from the store.

Every Tuesday, Dane Sanders  (Fast Track Photography Author) has a live webcast , where he has a special guest regarding business or photography.  Episode 107 is Using Music to Transform Your Business and the guess was Roy Ashen, the cofounder of Triple Scoop Music. From this episode I learned that when you purchase music from the store or  itunes, it is  for the personal listening use only. You only get the right to listen to the song and not for commercials purposes. It dose not  cover any business use, such as, advertising, slideshows, websites, video or to give to clients in any form.

I think Triple Scoop Music sets the tone for my  slideshow. Each song you purchase you have single user and lifetime right to the song.  You can use the song as many times as you want. Triple Scoop Music has a verity of songs you can hand pick  to complete  your slideshow!

PEAK and SEEK: Julieanne + Rain

Everyone  knows the fabulous wedding photographer, Jasmine Star. I adopted this ides from her. She has a weekly blog post called Kisses and Disses. They are random entries dedicated to her life highlighting the great part (Kisses)  and the bad parts (disses). I liked the idea. So I created my own called PEAK and SEEK. The PEAK is, as you probably guessed it, the high parts and  SEEK  is the bad parts. 
    • Julieanne Kost is an great teacher for  Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3. She can show you the features and tools of adobe photoshop Lightroom.
    • Fleeces. They are very worm and cozy for a snowy or rainy days.
    • Cool Ranch Doritos. They have been my choice of a snack lately.

    • Rain. It  has rained for two days strait. 
    • I smashed my left thumb in the car door when going to a Bambi Cantrell event. My thumb hurt so bad, I stuck it in the snow. Did I tell you that I am left handed. No Joke!
    • Noxzema face cleaner. I went to clean my face with Noxzema, a few hours later, my face had a rash.

    Have a great weekend!

    Nathan: Birthday

    The first time Nathan visited Pump It Up Party Center was when he attended a birthday party, he had so much fun, he wanted to go back. He asked his Mother if he can have his party their, who  would have know that his birthday party would have been at an inflatable arena. He told some of his friends to mark the calendar for February 26, 2011. He was so excited for the day to come, he would talk about it every chance he would get, while insuring his brother he would have fun. The talk at school  was about a new inflatable, the Slippery Slope, it was all of the craze, who can reach the star first. With a little help Nathan is the first and only person to reach the star at the party. He kept it funk and fresh while playing in the rooms filled with inflatable slides, bounce house, optical course and the slippery slope. Who would have know that party room had a Large king chair, where he opens his presents and blew out 7 candles. As a thank you gift, everyone received a goody bag and a balloon.

    I 'm honored to be a part of his day and capture little moments in action! Here is a link to a sideshow of the exciting day and some of my favorite photos!
