How to create a Email Submit or Subscribe box on Wordpress?
So I was doing some SEO work on my blog and the tools that test your site for SEO-niceness look for a “subscribe to site” capability. On a previous blog that was very easy to do and frankly I was a little surprised that WP does not currently have that capability.
So off I went searching for answers. I quickly realized that it was not automatic and it was going to require a little code. Not to worry, it turns out there is a solution that is relatively easy.

1. I wanted to be working in WordPress, the most popular Content Management System (CMS) in the world, so that I can easily help my clients with their web pages and blogs etc
2. From a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) perspective, it is much better to be blogging at your main domain, in this case www.waynemoran.com so that you are driving traffic to your domain and not the generic typepad.com domain.

This is all part of the large commercial shoot I am doing for a local Parking Vender. These guys are a great team of wonderful people.
Have you ever noticed that when you are shooting an image, you look at the image on your screen on your camera and you notice right away that the colors do not look right? You know, they are too blue or too red or whatever. Yes you can run into this situation even when you are shooting with a camera that has a great auto white balance setting. As you get more and more careful with the quality of your images and when you want to capture super high quality images the first time so that you can limit post production edits. So how do you fix this color issue which is a white balance issue?
The Guthrie Theater is a Tony Award winning center for theater performance, production, education, and professional training in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is the result of the desire of Sir Tyrone Guthrie, Oliver Rea, and Peter Zeisler to create a resident acting company that would produce and perform the classics in an atmosphere removed from the commercial pressures of Broadway.
The Guthrie Theater has performed in two main-stage facilities. The first building was designed by architect Ralph Rapson and included a 1,441-seat thrust stage designed by Tanya Moiseiwitsch, which was active from 1963-2006. After closing its 2005-2006 season, the theater moved to its current facility designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.
The Guthrie Theater is the best place in the city to take portraits, to see great theater, to eat or just to hang out. I love this place.
Take me out to the ball game…

So I received my new (used) nikon sb 24 flash (yes I know I am a canon guy), and the Cybersync transmitter and receivers , the light stands and umbrellas etc so last night I had some time to work with them and try to get the whole package working.
To my surprise, it was easy to get the Nikon firing with my canon 5D Mark II. I even was able to fire the Nikon light with my light meter hoocked up to the radio transmitter.
