A Little Trick to Add Internal Links

Tips & Tricks

September 20, 2017

There's a little trick that willl help you add an internal link into your website, meaning adding a link to an existing page of your site. Here, we want to add a link to the Team page into the Contact & Info page. The trick is to add the last part of the URL only — not the entire link. For the page delphinelinder.com/meet-the-team, we will add /meet-the-team. It's faster and you'll stay logged in when trying the link. Here is how you do: 

 


1. Start by selecting the text that you want to link to the page and click the link icon.

 

 

 

2. In the link popup window, under Link Info, in the field URL, add the last part of the page URL: /meet-the-team (the entire URL being www.delphinelinder.com/meet-the-team). Click OK.

 

 

3. You're done! The link is added, you can try it out without being logged out.

5 Blogging Mistakes to Avoid

Tips & Tricks

August 24, 2017

One of the most common misconceptions about blogging is that it is an easy thing to do. After all, how hard could it be to write a few articles loosely related a topic that you are truly passionate about? It’s usually not until somebody sits down to write that they realise creating and managing a successful blog is not quite the walk in the park they assumed it to be.


In this article, we’ll cover why it’s important for your creative business to have a blog before addressing some of the most common blogging mistakes that can harm your chances of blogging success.

Why Write a Blog?

A well-written blog has the power to transform your creative business. Blogging is a powerful tool through which you can communicate and connect with your audience on a more personal level. 

 

You can effectively communicate the quirks of your personality and the admirable ideals of your company. Additionally, you can give readers an exclusive insight into the interesting happenings that go on behind the scenes of your day to day creative adventures and mishaps.  

 

What’s more is that the search engines love them. When blogging is done right, you can expect to see your website shoot right up the search engine rankings. This is wonderful because it conveniently provides you with more traffic to your site. More traffic means more business, no matter how obscure or enigmatic your creative tastes are!

 

So without further ado, let’s carefully examine the most common pitfalls that aspiring bloggers fall victim to and discover what we can do to avoid them.

Mária Svarbová

Into the world of creatives

August 16, 2017

 

 

Mária Švarbová is a photographer based in Slovakia. Despite studying restoration and archaeology, her preferred artistic medium is photography. From 2010 to the present, the immediacy of Mária's photographic instinct continues to garner international acclaim and is setting new precedents in photographic expression. The recipient of several prestigious awards, her solo and group exhibitions have placed her among the vanguard of her contemporaries, attracting features in Vogue, Forbes, The Guardian, and publications around the world; her work is frequently in the limelight of social media. 

 

Mária’s distinctive style departs from traditional portraiture and focuses on experimentation with space, colour, and atmosphere. Taking an interest in Socialist era architecture and public spaces, Mária transforms each scene with a modern freshness that highlights the depth and range of her creative palette. The human body throughout her œuvre is more or less a peripheral afterthought, often portrayed as aloof and demure rather than substantive. Carefully composed figures create thematic, dream-like scenes with ordinary objects. Her images hold a silent tension that hints at emergent possibilities under the lilt of clean and smooth surfaces.

8 Best Apps for Photographers 2017

Tips & Tricks

August 09, 2017

With so many photography apps currently available, yet so few of them of pitched towards serious photographers, it can be tricky to work out which ones are worth installing. Check out our guide to the best photography apps and discover which ones are right for your shooting style.

 


 

Photography has never been more popular than it is right now, consequently there are plenty of apps catering for this market. The thing is though, most of these are designed for those taking snaps for social media, not shooting high quality images for demanding clients. Unsurprisingly then, the majority of photography apps available are geared towards making fairly average photos look more interesting by processing the living daylights out of them. 

 

There's nothing wrong with that of course, but if you're a serious photographer, another app full of dubious presets is unlikely to be of much interest. Surely there must be some apps out there that are designed to make life easier for pro- and semipro-level shooters? 

 

Indeed there are. But in reality, even among these, only a very few are likely to be of genuine use to the serious photographer. Take for example the crop of apps intended to help with location scouting, such as Panoramio, ShotHotspot, Spot a Spot, Map-a-Pic and Stuck on Earth. These all offer fairly similar resources, allowing you to search for a geographical location by means of overlays on Google Maps, then see what other photographers have shot there, and finally upload your own photos and location tips. 

 

Sure, it's often wise to check out a new location before you get there, especially if it's on the other side of the world. But a combination of Google Maps and a quick Flickr search already allows you to do this without the need to choke your smartphone with yet another app. 

 

What's more, after composition, use of light and people skills, it's details such as casting, props and location that set a good photographer apart from the competition. If you've found a great "secret" location, why would you want to share it with every other photographer on the planet? Conversely, what's the point of traveling half way around the world just to shoot the same view as everyone else?

 

Thankfully, though, not all apps available are quite so redundant. Given that we pretty much all walk around with smartphones now anyway, it makes little sense to carry unnecessary hardware if our phone can do these same tasks for us just as efficiently. To save you the hassle of sorting through all the dead wood and useless gimmicks, we've rounded up 8 of the best apps for professional photographers:
