Like or do photography and are on

twitter then post a link here..

ill start http://twitter.com/trcwest

I am a keen twitter user with a love and passion for photography. So I thought this could be a great place to get people talking about being on twitter and enjoying photogrpahy for what its meant to be.

I have been looking arround the twinternet and so far i have not found any sites that list or archive good photographers or good photographic content.

So what i am proposing is this…

  1. Get on twitter if your not already
  2. Post a link here to your twitter account http://twitter.com/…..
  3. Enjoy posting links and tweets to one another

But no seriously here are some tips…

Twitpic seems to be the place to be for small time tacky photos online but why not ad some top notch stuff onto there…

Integrate you photoblog with a twitter plugin like Twitter Tools This will mean that every time you make a new blog post it will update twitter..

Post links using the link shorteners like tinyurl or is.gd

RT, which means re tweet, other peoples tweets that you like and if photography is your thing then why not start now and join in..

Go for it…

Dont forget to post your twitter

link in the comments.. cheers

New Photo Blog www.trcwest.com/photoblog/

By | Coding, Cool Things, Design, photography | No Comments

Hey every one i have just set up a new photoblog as i was inspired by eight6.com’s theme Monotone

It is a really cool theme that 

Monotone takes the first image attached to a post and samples colors from it for use in the surrounding layout. 

Basically it is like a cool little photo blog that is like a Chameleon and adapts to each photo and puts the sole focus on the image in the post. not more rubbish tiny images that are not framed right. 

As you can see it beautifully chooses the most dominant colour theme in the Photo 

Really nice interface… simple and powerful

I must say now i take my hat of to Noel Jackson director of Eight 6 for developing this cool theme and also for the help that he gave me. He was kind enough to sift through my feeble attempts to fix a .htaccess issue and rename and re point to the right directory as it was in a sub folder. Basically the .htaccess file and the  thumb.php are important and need to be set up right if not using it in a stand alone directory. 

It would be great to hear some feed back about peoples photo blogs and what ones they like using???

Please let me know what you think of mine and my images??

Thanks again Noel
