It’s been a long time waiting and we finally have a trademark for Everyday Focus Clothing and Apparel. We’re launching our t-shirts first and all other things will soon follow.
What is your Everyday Focus? You Define It
We’re looking forward to getting our hands on the Lumix GH3. The price retails about $1300 for the body, not too shabby compared to what a good camera goes for nowadays. This allows more budget for super crazy lenses! Based on reviews we have seen, it is comparable to the Canon 5D and has exceeded most peoples’ expectations. Most videographers and photographers are usually unwilling to try something different. Especially when the investment into existing equipment leans more towards… the higher thousands of dollars and was most likely accumulated over years. Like the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” But we have seen faithful Canon users convert over to Lumix and only have good things to say about it.
If anyone else cares, here are some of the features:
- Professional HD Video up to 1080/60p in H.264 format
- Sealed magnesium-alloy body helps the camera withstand the rigors of professional use.
- Full Area High-Speed AF System for fast shooting and focus in both still and video modes
- Dual-OLED Displays are used for both the Live View Finder and the rear monitor and feature 100% coverage, exhibits virtually no perceptible lag time and ensures the subject is shown with natural coloring.

OH NO!!!! Our email is hosted by GoDaddy.com and if you haven’t heard yet, GoDaddy.com is down right now… which means our emails don’t work. Any “@triplemdesignz.com” email will not work. Not sure when it’ll be up and going again. Thankfully our website is still running. Our domain is registered with GoDaddy.com but not hosted. Glad we made that decision.

In today’s competitive world there are so many ways to get our name out there and earn new business. With all these different ways to market, sometimes we lose sight of what’s important to us, our existing clients. We want you to come back again and again and again. Although getting new clients is a very crucial part of our growth, it is similarly crucial for us to keep, you. Like any relationship you have to continue to give to receive. And, like any relationship, this courtship is not over, we have to earn your loyalty and win you over every time. Otherwise, you can easily go to “the other guy”. We can’t have that now, can we?
So tell us. We want your feedback.
- What are we doing that’s working?
- Is there anything we can improve upon?
- Is there something that we should be doing that we’re currently not?
You do not need to be an existing client to give feedback. Any feedback is welcome.
When a video is needed, before even considering a videographer, you have to know what type of video you want. That’s the starting point. There are different requirements for different types of videos like weddings, music videos, special events, and commercials, but they all have the same underlying factors. Now, here are the top 5 things to consider when choosing your videographer for any type of video. (These are not in any particular order)
Most videographers will be able to describe their style to you, but always see for yourself. Be sure to watch some of their previous work. Look at what they’ve done in the past. Best thing is to see their most current work, as styles may have changed or evolved. Make sure you like what you see. It’s easier to go with someone with your own style and taste rather than having them change to fit you. Choose the path of least resistance.
Equipment is key when it comes to being able to capture high quality video. Without the right equipment you can only count on the talents of the videographer. They can be great videographers but without the right equipment, they can only do so much. A quality camera will capture quality video. If your video requires audio, a low grade microphone just won’t cut it. You can manipulate video to make it better, but poor audio is simply poor audio. Additional lighting is needed if you’re not filming outside in the daylight, otherwise your video will be dark, gloomy and grainy. With everything pretty much captured in HD it’s important to have all aspects of your video on the same level.
Cost is usually the first to be considered but shouldn’t always be your primary reason, however it is important. The statement “you get what you pay for” is true most of the time, but not all of the time. Industry standards right now is around the $150 per hour rate. This is a good benchmark to budget for a video but most videographers will quote a package price or fee based on the project type, since they should know relatively how much time they spend on each. Just because their prices are lower doesn’t mean they’re bad. Just because they charge an arm and a leg doesn’t mean they are any good. You’ll have to find a middle ground based on industry standards and what you’re willing to pay. Remember, there are many videographers to choose from and it never hurts to ask for a better price.
You’re going to have to deal with this person or team of people for the duration of your video shoot. Be sure they are “compatible” with you, otherwise it’ll be a struggle if you’re always butting heads.
You’ll want someone that has experience because… practice only makes perfect. Get someone who knows what they’re doing. Their experience will determine the time spent (or wasted) preparing, filming and editing your video. You really don’t want someone “learning on the job” at your wedding. Nor do you want someone experimenting techniques for the first time. Although it never hurts to give the “up and comers” a chance at your business, it’s always a good ideas to ask for references and ask to see credentials if they are fresh out of school. Just be sure to at least know what they can do before agreeing to anything.

Are you ready for another Break? Well, Lady X and her team didn’t waste any time before starting again. The Break, Talk Show is back for Season 3, Wednesday August 22, 2012. The show is filmed on location at Jolt’n Joe’s in the downtown San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. The Break is a talk show that provides a platform for San Diego artists (not limited to music) to showcase their work and reach out to their fans. To add to that, the show also features a local business interview, in which Melissa Myers, visits these entrepreneurs at their locations, giving viewers a little insight at what they do and offer San Diego. Earl’s Corner with Earl Wilson is a part of the show that is ever evolving. We’ll never know what Earl will do, it could be a serious interview, rants about the Illuminati or just talks about his obsession with shoes. Nonetheless, always fun to watch. At the end of last season, The Break introduced a new cast member, Wendy Wang aka “Dubs”. She joined Earl to interview a dance crew on the season finale, but in this season will be providing viewers with upcoming events and recommendations on how to spend time in San Diego.
You can catch up on all episodes at iamstrictlybusiness.com. For more information on how to get on the show or become a featured business contact I Am Strictly Business at email@example.com.

We’ve all been to tradeshows and expos and they give out promo items like t-shirts, pens, bottle openers, flashlights, keychains, water bottles, tote bags, and all sorts of neat stuff. Every business usually has something with their name on it to give away in hopes of drawing in more clientele. But what are the items that people actually hang on to? Some stuff are so useless that it ends up in the junk drawer. What’s going to be used or displayed where other people can see it? One time, I got a little foam thing that was in a shape of a house. I had no clue what it was supposed to be used for. That thing just ended up in the trash and didn’t even make it to my junk drawer.
We want to start giving out promo items to get out name and brand out to the masses, but we don’t quite have the budget to waste on things that may get tossed. Let us know what you’d actually use. Give us your suggestions.
