Pet Image Gallery

Photographing pets on location is much like photographing children on location. Mainly, you just stay ready at all times to click the shutter. Sometimes you click the shutter in anticipation of what you think they might do. And, sometimes you just get lucky. Children and animals are my favorite photographic subjects. Ph

13 Dos and Don'ts Of Performing At Open Mics



13 Dos and Don'ts Of Performing At Open Mics
by Robin Yukiko August 3rd 2012



DON’T play and leave.

DO talk to EVERYONE and remember their names. You can even write their name and description and review it at the end of the night. They will be so impressed the next week.

DON’T expect to be discovered. This is a networking opportunity with other musicians. Open mics only lead to gigs if you work your contacts and follow up.

DON'T just say "Good job". Be specific and sincere like "I really liked your hook" or "Your low range sounds great!" so they know you were paying attention.

DO introduce others. Even if you aren't interested in collaborating with someone, maybe you can give someone a good lead.

DON’T heckle. No one wants you to request Free Bird.

DO be gracious. If only one person is listening, play just for that person, and yourself.

DON’T talk loudly over a ballad. Everyone chats, just be respectful about it.

DO play contrasting songs. (One slow, one fast, one in major, one in minor, etc.)

Similarly, DON’T play two songs in the same key back-to-back. Even if an audience doesn't know, their ears will start to get bored.

DON’T apologize before you play a song. People want you to be excited about your song, not hear excuses for why it's going to suck.

DO make friends with the host, bartenders, and all staff. People like to work with their friends, so be a friend to everyone you meet.

DO have fun! If it's not fun, what's the point?

Catching Up and Changing Directions



At best moving can only be described as a PIA. This one has taken me three months. And, sorry to say it may not be my last. And, it may not last long. But, for now, I am here. And, I plan to make the best of it. Last week I began to slowly get back into the groove of working with my photography. Yesterday I began updating my web (Bad Habit Photography) site, and continued the project this morning. I will also once again begin posting special projects on my Flickr sites.

Essentially, my specialties (EVENTS, LIFESTYLE and TRAVEL) will not change, but I will be accepting any opportunities to shoot any subject or project that I can, EXCEPT WEDDINGS. I plan to do a lot of industrial (trucks and the oilfield) work as long as I am living in this part of the country. But, I do hope to travel again soon. Travel will be another ongoing project for me. I seem to think and plan better when I am on long drives. When I am not driving I am always too busy being active in my daily life to sort through decisions and plans that need to be made.

Last night I began posting a new "Pet" gallery to my Bad Habit Photography web site. I have also posted some new floral shots in the Fine Art: Floral.1 gallery. I have, and will be, archiving some galleries and posting new ones in the near future. Finally, I hope to start traveling to small music venues in the region to begin photographing live music events and working on photography projects. It will be slow. But, IT WILL BE.
