Photo Tips and Feel Good Tricks

Now Available!

It stuck me this week, just how much my regard for the mailman has changed over the years.

I can still remember as a kid, the extreme pleasure of anticipation I felt as my birthday drew near. Everyday I would rush to the mailbox to see if my birthday cards had begun to arrive. The hope and excitement went on for days until I knew the very last of the cards had arrived.

And don’t even get me started on how great it felt to wait for a package to arrive! Days seem like weeks when you’re a kid, which only served to amplify the excitement.

No matter how much my beloved dog Dusty barked, I still loved a visit from the mailman.

These days, not so much.

He brings mostly bills and junk mail. And it seems all too frequently.

With email and Facebook and Twitter it seems we’ve all taken most of our contact and conversation online. Truth be told, while it tends to create more interaction, I find the quality of that contact a bit less memorable than physical contact. I may read thousands of words each day on the internet, but quite frankly, remember little the next day. Including some information that I made note to remember, but now can’t locate a link for, even to save my life.

What I do enjoy, is the few magazines and newsletters the mailman brings once a month. I can enjoy reading the article in my most comfortable chair, or out by the pool now that summer is here. I can start now, put it down as I drift off to sleep, and then come back to the very same page later, without having to remember the “link”. There’s something wonderful still about the physical page that no amount of internet hype or Kindle Reader will ever replace.

Birthday cards now come too often and too fast. And seldom with the gifts inside that I’d received as a kid!

But I am grateful for the mailman, at least once a month, when he brings me my favorite reading material.

So I thought of you, my loyal readers, and wondered if you too would like to appreciate the dedicated mailman a little more? I wondered if you wouldn’t like to get your hands on – really get your hands on – some of the greatest information I’ve found on photography.

Tips on taking better photos. Tips on using Photoshop. Tips on the health and wellness benefits of photography. Tips on the best products to buy. Tips even, on where to get more tips! All in a wonderfully lite newsletter you can take anywhere  to enjoy.

This month (July 2011) there are tips on using the Photoshop CS5 Content Aware, there’s a research article by a notable doctor on how to use activities like photography to improve your health, there’s an article on the best way to capture Fireworks, and info on a great new audio program for changing your life through photography, and more.

Maybe if you’d like a little more happy mail, you’ll have a look at my new, “made-from-real-paper” newsletter!

Happy Summer!

P.S. While I may take issue with the content he brings, I have the utmost respect and regard for the tireless and dedicated postal workers. Six days a week, through the coldest, windiest and snowiest BUFFALO winters they bring the mail every day. Humid summer heat and rain, ooh the rain! The mail still comes. It’s an incredibly physical job and they do it without complaint. I have tremendous personal respect for the mailman. Especially, since I was one once. For a WEEK!

If only he’d quit bringing those darned BILLS! =)
