Just Checkin’ In

25 May

How are everyone’s Long Exposure photos coming for this month’s community project? Anyone stuck and looking for ideas?

To me, it seems like the hardest thing about doing this project is the creativity aspect of it.  Taking a concept and making it your own can be intimidating sometimes.  If you’re anything like me, you want it to be good…no…great if you’re going to put it out there for the world to see.  But remember, my creative friends, we are in the tree of trust!  We grow through experimentation.  Don’t be afraid to try!  Sometimes our biggest inspirations comes from improving upon something that didn’t live up to what we envisioned.

I promise, your ideas have potential.  Don’t be afraid to push yourself to realize that potential!  Nick and I encourage you to make this project your own.  Learn the skills for long exposure (did I mention you’ll need them for the awesome-ness coming in next month’s project?? 😉 Well, if I didn’t…now you know! haha) but just as importantly, let the creativity flow!

If you have questions, or need someone to toss ideas around with, Nick and I are here for you.  Like all of you cool cats, we spend a lot of time on Facebook (SSP, NE) and we both happen to be email junkies.  Which, just to clarify, is not the same as liking junk mail. haha  And while you’re there, hitting the “like” button will keep you in the loop for future collabs, events and give-aways.  (Yes, I said give-aways!!)

So, in summary:
A) Long Exposures + Creative Expression = Awesome
B) We can generally be reached pretty quickly if you need someone to talk to about ideas.
C) You are awesome and we appreciate you!
D) Make sure to keep spreading the word about this project – re-blog, re-post, etc! More people is more fun. It’s also a larger resource for you…the more people we have in our community, the more knowledge and experience we have to draw off of.  See?  Everybody wins!
E) Those last few aren’t really a summary…but they are still important.  Seriously, you guys rock!

    I must admit I’m struggling to find something exciting so far. I’ll keep trying though.
