I pray everyone had a blessed Christmas that was in the "true" spirit of the season and that his "gift" continues to guide you now and into the New Year ahead.
Now there are several of you, and you know who you are, who have signed up for my newsletter and I want to thank you for that. There are also another 30+ who frequent my Blog daily and you also know who you are; please feel free to sign up as well to stay informed of the updates. There might also be another few random visitors who find the Blog and perhaps like what you see. Well, I need to hear from all of you; this is where the "Group Participation" piece comes in.
I want to get your candid feedback on where you'd like me to take certain aspects of my work. In 2008, I did more shoots with people, crossed over into the commercial world and explored my creative side a bit more. I was told to consider a book which I am. It was also mentioned that several of my fall and winter shots were postcard worthy, etc. Those all sound like great ideas which I will pursue and I want to take this time to get additional ideas for my 2009 plans. 2009 is just around the corner so time is critical if you feel led to participate via your feedback.
I will be headed to Chicago this afternoon to visit friends and hope to get my Best Friend out to do some shooting and hopefully get his work "off the hard drive" as his wife so lovingly reminds him. I will have my laptop with me and will Blog some of my/our best photo's over the weekend. I really want to explore parts of Chicago that I don't normally visit and get some unusual shots and perspectives. So folks, I will be waiting to hear from you. Also, some of you will be getting personal invitations to participate in this feedback process if I don't hear from you AND you do know who you are :)
Much love and thanks!
