Education Post Roundup for March 2019

Education Post Roundup for March 2019

I have been posting a lot about cameras and how to use them over recent months, so I thought a smartphone and DSLR roundup of posts would be a help for anyone who needs to refer to them.

There are one or two surprises, especially for smartphone users in this week’s brief post.

DSLR Roundup with Miss Max from the Cat Cafe

Our DSLR post roundup

  • If you think your smartphone can’t good pictures, think again. Check this post about bees to see how amazing smartphones can ‘be’.
  • Panicking about that DSLR you bought? Try this!
  • Taking action cat pictures. Beginner’s inspiration.
  • Think you can’t make a pet movie? Give it a try with our useful tips and encouragement.
  • Smartphone movies the lazy way? Don’t edit!

CWA Certificate news

The Pet Parade has been spotlighting my camera journey and I am pleased to announce that two of my posts on a moviemaking or science theme have won certificates in the Cat Writers Association Annual Awards.

  1. Filming Solo for Your Rescue or Cat Blog
  2. Facial Recognition Technology Helps Find Lost Pets

The Cat Writers Association have very high standards of excellence, so this is a major achievement for me and the blog.

The CWA is also celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019. A tremendous achievement of consistency in these times of transformation and change. The CWA are holding their conference in St. Louis Mo. in April.

Sparkle the tortie

If you are a cat creative you can attend. You do not have to be a member of the CWA, and you will learn lots about cats.

Are you celebrating a win this week? The Crew and your Pet Parade co-hosts want to hear about it so let us see your best social media posts in the hop! FB posts, blog posts, tweets and Instagram visuals are all welcome in our DSLR Roundup!

  1. Congratulations!!! The conference was in Houston last year but we’d just moved here and I didn’t know about it until it was in full swing. Thanks for sharing your movie making knowledge with us.

  2. Congrats on your award! Wow, what an honor. I’ve been reading through your DSLR and mobile phone posts. I love them! I cant wait to see what is next 😉

    • Thank you. We aim to encourage and help nervous newbies and those wanting to get a bit better so they take great pictures.

  3. Congratulations on your awards! Your videos are always inspiring. It is so awesome that you are sharing your journey and encouraging others to make movies.

  4. Congratulations on your CWA awards!! Yeay! I love reading your DSLR tips. They are so helpful for a beginner like me. I have to start out simple as I only have a smartphone but it’s nice to have a resource to go when I finally upgrade! Congrats again. You deserve it!

  5. Congrats on your CWA awards! I always enjoy reading your posts. Hopefully next year BlogPaws will have a conference and meet some of the CWA folks.

    • I dearly hope so. The two organisations have so much in common and BlogPaws was a really special event. a

  6. Congratulations on your awards – I am so glad you have been recognized for all your hard work getting everyone into videos. Your articles make it so much easier- well done. I have to say, I love my iPhone and my Sony 4K Handycam- even that I screw up the settings so still holding off a new camera and lenses. We shot Kids’ Pet Club with Red Cameras in 6K and lots of lenses and lights- very glad I just nodded encouragement to my amazing DOP. Thanks for the recap.

  7. Holy smokes and congratulations – so proud of you, and happy for you! You’ve been at it for a while, and it’s so nice when you get recognized! Excellent roundup of your always great DSLR posts!

  8. Excellent roundup of your great DSLR posts! I tweeted & pinned.
    Love & Biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  9. Congratulations I am so happy for you, and as always Layla woofs thank you for the blog hop . You always amaze me

  10. That’s amazing congratulations on the certificates! I’m definitely going to check out the roundup. Jack looked so adorable the other night and it would have made a great picture, but I grabbed my camera and remembered pictures always look orange inside in the evening. I fiddled around with the settings, found one that worked but now I’m stuck in it. It’s about time I learned how to use the camera, I won’t tell you how long ago I bought it!

  11. Congratulations on your awards, you have worked so hard and produced some great articles for us to enjoy, and wonderful pictures, too.

  12. Great (and helpful) recap, Marjorie! Oh, and lest we forget, congratulations on your well deserved certificates! We are so happy for you, and proud OF you. 🙂

  13. I think I missed some of these the first time. Thank you for the recap!
    And congratulations on your certificates!
