Hello World!

Not only is it a great song by one of my favorite bands, Lady Antebellum, but it’s also the universal computer programmer’s announcement of all things new. Being the geek that I am, it seemed befitting.

So, here it is… I’m so happy to announce that after all the developments in my photography over 2010 and building my photo business little by little, I’ve finally gotten around to starting my own photography blog. It seems that every photographer has one of these so why shouldn’t I? It’s the digital age and the age of total connectivity so it’s time to add one more distraction into my life.

With that being said, bear with me as this bad boy is a work in progress. I will get my links all activated and fill in my blogroll. I might even throw in a few surprises in the way of some fancy WordPress plugins (Lightbox photos, anyone?).

I will try my best to post on a semi-regular basis about what sort of shoots I’m doing as well as share some images and stories from shoots and all that fun stuff. So stay tuned for that. If you are really ambitious, you can even click that orange radar symbol up next to my URL and grab the RSS feed – what’s better than delivery? Well… Digiorno I guess, but sadly blogs aren’t boxed up, frozen, or cooked in an oven.

If you are willing to go even a little further and want to stay up to date on an even more regular basis, feel free to check me out on my many social media platforms. I usually include commentary from shoots (even while I’m shooting!) and other photos from different photowalks, projects, etc. that might not make it on the blog.

The first question I have is what everyone thinks of the basic design. I spent a little bit of time customizing this to match the site a bit and I’ve got to say that for a built-in WordPress theme, the CSS code is really tough to understand especially when there are no real guidelines or comments in the code. Yikes! Either way, drop me a comment and let me know what you think of the design.

P.S. If you notice that the green “glow” at the bottom isn’t flush with the bottom, have no fear, it will look great and line up perfectly when the blog gets filled out a bit more.

  • My first blog post also referenced ‘hello world’ / programming! haha!

    I do have to disagree with one thing…apparently, a blog *can* be frozen, my blog is proof of that!!! LOL

    Looks good, Vuji I like the clean layout! Not so sure about the green glow. Doesn’t really fit the color scheme.

    • Thanks, Tim! I definitely wondered about the green glow myself now that I have the header in place. I think I might just simplify and remove it all together and just leave the solid black.

  • Very nice, Mike! I want to wish you the best for 2011! Rock On my friend!
