Google search is one of the most powerful ways that people will find you and your business. They are always changing their algorithms and this time they added a new criteria for your website called “Mobile Friendliness”.

This means Google takes into account how your website loads and acts on mobile devices. If it’s not “Mobile Friendly” your mobile search traffic may be effected.

Here is a tool to check if your site is “Mobile Friendly” or not. https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

This video SUCKS without Sound Effects, Music and Graphics

The point of this video is simple. Without sound effects, music and graphics the video just sucks. But when you see and hear the video in it’s finished form it’s a totally different animal, it’s AWESOME.

We personally use Video and Audio Blocks for all the graphics and audio clips we need for our videos. All I can say is give them a try because not only is it affordable it’s effective. The proof is right there in the clips.

If you are like many other creators out there today you are creating a lot more videos. With video you need sound effects, audio and extra video clips to take your videos to a better place. With AudioBlocks and VideoBlocks you can make that happen for a small payment once a year.

My EXACT Process for Photo Editing

Recently I shot behind the scenes production stills of a commercial being filmed at Charlie’s Jeans by Todd Wolfe.

Many of us know that shooting the pictures is only half the battle. It’s what you do with the images you captured after the fact that takes your images from RAW files to completed masterpieces.

The only issue is how do you decide what images you want to fully edit. It’s a good practice in my option to import your images, re-name them and make selections of the images you want to fully edit.

In part one of this series I show you exactly how I select the images that are keepers and the reasons why some of them are not.

In part two I take you through the process of editing each keeper to its final state in Adobe Lightroom. Watch as the RAW files come to life and take shape as I tweak the images each step of the way.
