Although I’m an introvert by nature, I’ve discovered that over the long haul, having company along for the ride can be more enjoyable.
When I started this challenge, I thought I might find a friend or two to join me. Never did I imagine that over 200 people would join and more than a handful of those would be active participants in the challenge via blogs, twitter, and facebook. It’s been an amazing ride after less than 2 months. The people I’ve met along the way are one of the best aspects of this entire journey.
I thought the VW van above captured this idea perfectly. VW vans were created for company, lots of people, and plenty of fun. That’s what I hope this tasra365 challenge provides for you.
Featured 365-er: Ben Riddick. Ben started exactly one week after I did. Although he felt a bit narcissistic telling his story, he decided to share anyway. Here are some of his thoughts on being along for the ride…
“Not only have I been pushing myself to go out and take pictures every day, but I am also meeting a lot of cool people through different social medias because of it. I have been making myself go out and look at other photographers out there, not only the big famous ones that are published or incredibly successful, but also the ones that are new with an incredible talent, and pushing themselves with every photo they take. It has been absolutely amazing and just great. I have made some really great friends, I have heard many great critiques, and I feel I have been growing and developing my own kind of style.
I will say that the manual page every day got kind of old for me. It is difficult to stay interested in that. However, while I may have stopped reading a page a day, I have made sure to read something about my camera, my editing software, and/or social media every day to stay ahead and continue pushing myself.”
Manual: Page 87—Custom Settings. When resetting custom settings, you can either reset individual ones, just the custom settings, or the entire camera.
Images: Looked at images of Rich Legg, guest blogger on Photofocus and stock photographer. Discovered a cool Mac trick when he posted a negative image and then you can view the positive of the image by pressing CTRL-OPTION-COMMAND 8.
Added: Found Rich Legg via fellow 365-er James Berghout.
