H-Day Turbo Tuedsay

Advertisements

Happy Tuesday! It’s Turbo Tuesday Rebooted! I’ve attended 4 H-Day events in the past. I either attend the Saturday or Sunday portion of the show. I finally got a chance to attend both days of H-Day at Maryland International Raceway. I finished the 1st page of the event galleries. There’ll be 4 pages of content from this event nearly 2 weeks ago. It’s clear there is more great content from this event to share with everyone who loves these types of events. I can thank Betterment and Yotta for helping me save up to afford the tickets. I updated the events page for future events as the weather starts to warm up. I’m also getting funding help from my eBay store. I recently added a new inventory for those looking to upgrade their summer fun itinerary. I’m getting back to spring cleaning to have space for summer fun in the next few weeks.

The Daily Drive has been rebranded to specific days as a result of the updated schedules and availability. I finally got images from the 2022 Washington Auto Show uploaded this week. It’s great to get the 1st event gallery for 2022 uploaded is exciting. I’m also finally catching up on a good portion of the feature model gallery from last year posted on this website. I plan to get a few more feature model galleries posted either this weekend or days before another photoshoot takes place next week. I also made some changes to my Bonanza account a few weeks ago. I’m now making changes to the many revenue sources to support the website besides the official online store here. I feel much better with the potential of watching this revenue stream relaunched to create new opportunities for future fans to enjoy.

Turbo Tuesday Restarted 1

I just finished putting the finishing touches on one of my car show galleries from last year. Now, I have room to set up the 2022 Car Show Galleries section. I’m also working on adding new feature model galleries to get the 2022 feature model section up and running. Several photoshoots from last year are still in the post-production stage. The Washington Auto Show is now playing until Sunday. On top of that, The Maryland Auto Show is happening this weekend. Last year, this is was not an option due to the global pandemic. The pandemic is still here, and I took the necessary steps to stay safe as I create new content weekly.

It’s been a crazy 1st month of 2022. My phone was out of order for a week. It turns out it needed a new battery, and it’s now functional. I had to clean up from 2 snowstorms. My other sources of income dealt with a normal slowdown from an active December 2021.  On top of that, I just had 2 scheduled photoshoots rescheduled due to Covid-19 issues. I did get 1 feature model photo shoot completed this month with another one scheduled next week. I also have several car show galleries posted online. I’m on the verge of creating a 2022 Car Show gallery with the Washington Auto Show returning after a year off. I also got the uncensored set (18+) from this photoshoot last summer sold! Stay tuned for another feature model gallery posted!

Weekend Drive End of Year Special

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year, Divas-N-Rides fans! For those wondering what was up with the radio silence, I was preoccupied with prior commitments over the last few months. I was able to update the events calendar section on the website for the 2022 calendar year. It’s still a work in progress as new events get added. However with news of the latest development in the global pandemic, there’s a good chance some events will be changed in response to the everchanging health crisis. I also added new content to the website. I added some new galleries with the models I worked with this past summer and fall. I also posted a few events I attended in 2021.  Finally, the folks at YottaSavings put together this coll song recapping my 2021. It’s called #YottaRapped! It’s so wild and funny that I had to share it with you. Also, if you want big with Yotta, sign up using my promo code Aaron174.

Turbo Tuesday Recharged: Back From Off Track

In 2 days, we’ll have another feature model photoshoot. This week’s feature model is from February 2020. This took place before a global pandemic changed everything we did and then some. The last photoshoot involved apparel from the original Divas-N-Rides Store. This month’s photoshoot will feature this design from our Spreadshirt store. If you haven’t seen the newly designed apparel, you can found it with March’s feature model photoshoot. In the next few days, I’ll have the more recent feature model photoshoots posted soon before the end of the month.

Turbo Tuesdays Recharged

If you noticed why there hasn’t been a Daily Drive for the past few weeks. Here’s the lowdown. I did attend 2 automotive events last month. The images from the Asphalt Angels Spring Show and Southern High FFA Alumni Car, Truck, and Tractor show are now available online. I did 3 different feature model photoshoots that are now uploaded on the servers, and they’ll be posted by the end of the week. Images of Myrra and Lois are now online for viewing. Now, I found a great way to get to earn more money without putting in extra work. I’ve been making a bi-weekly deposit to my Yotta Savings account, and I won several times. It’s called the fun money account. I also started a spending account with Stash last year. They gave me a reloadable that has a stock back reward. In plain English, I own a piece of stock from a company with each purchase. Therefore, I’ll more financial support to keep new content daily, weekly, or monthly!

Turbo Tuesdays Photoshoot Basics

Advertisements

Greetings! I just finished watching the Men’s and Women’s Final Four this past weekend. I also added a new gallery to the Flashback Fridays page. Now, I can shift my focus to photoshoot prep. Here’s the deal! I got back-to-back photoshoots starting April 11th. A good photo shoot involves proper communication and planning. It also involves having clarity in what you need from this photoshoot. However, it’s easy to screw up a potential photoshoot. Here are the 5 areas of a photoshoot you need to address before the 1st image is captured.

  1. Bookings: It’s about finding the right time for all parties involved. You don’t want to schedule anything that conflicts with any other activities. Check your schedule to find the best time available. I look at my calendar to ensure that I’m not booking something that might create schedule conflicts with other commitments. Don’t assume you got the date set in stone until to tied that date up in advance. 
  2. Location: Make sure the location is available. If that location isn’t an option, you need to have an alternative venue available. That’s why I bookmarked PeerSpace. I also had talent used their place in town as a spot for photoshoots.
  3. Budget: You want to avoid being pennywise, but pound foolish. Make sure you have the right amount of money to carry out this project. I also ask about rates, whether it’s paid or unpaid, etc. 
  4. Equipment: Make sure you have all the gear needed for a photoshoot. I recently bought my own lights for venues that don’t supply their own lights. I also had to get extra batteries, a battery organizer, an sd card, or a Compact flashcard.
  5. Wardrobe: What clothes will be a part of the photoshoot? I usually state what type of outfits will be a part of the photoshoot. I also let the interested party know that I might be bringing clothes from the Divas-N-Rides store

That’s just a brief rundown on how Divas-N-Rides get their feature model photoshoots set up. Stay tuned for items we’re sharing from past photoshoot and event coverage.

The Daily Drive, Turbo Tuesdays 4

Advertisements

Greetings! If you noticed that I haven’t posted anything lately. I’ve been tied up with many things in the past few weeks. This goes beyond March Madness Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments. One of the things I’ve been tied up with is photography. I successfully completed 1 photoshoot on February, 3 in March, and 2 H.O.P.S events last week. I also posted new images for 2 new Flashback Fridays that I plan to post this coming Friday. Both involve past photoshoots that will be posted on my Bentbox page (18+). I also will have the latest feature model photoshoot posted before the week is over. I’m also returning to Vanaheim Studio next month because I couldn’t find any open spots at Union 206. However, I did get a timeslot book at Union 206 booked next month. Finally, I got the stimulus check 2 weeks ago, and I used some of it to pay down debt and renewed my WordPress account. I choose to have that part of the website taken care of so it wouldn’t take too much time to resolve. This month, I had multiple weeks of multiple sales on Mercari. I’m adding new items for sale over there and at my eBay store. I got a block of time for new content creation and additions to be shared with everyone before the end of the month.

Daily Drive Turbo Tuesdays 3

Here’s an update on the event schedule! This is related to the events at Maryland International Raceway. It’s clear that I have to wait a little longer to see spectators attend those events. Several events I posted are for racers, crew members, and their families. The 2021 rules are similar to the 2020 rules. When I was updating the page, I missed this important detail.It’s clear that until most of the states, let alone the nation, reach herd immunity, it’s clear many of us will be on the outside looking in. That means alternative plans until safe to visit this track or any other tracks in the near future. Until then, I will post new non-automotive content to the website. I also have 2 confirmed photo shoots starting this Saturday. I also plan to add new galleries in the Flashback Fridays and Eye Candy sections.
