Back to Blogging

So I’m here at WPPI and I’m going through the classes and everything. So I’m sitting in a session with Christine Tremoulet and she is sharing something very powerful about stories. She states that the necessity of sharing stories is crucial. On the top of one of those aha/ I’m doing it all wrong moments comes an epiphany (actually several) in that there is a serious need to share stories. So that is something that I intend to start doing in some of these blog posts. 

I have blogged seriously before and I had built up quite a following and I stopped because some serious life changes happened. However it was kind of a therapy for me. I think that doing it again as a business therapy is a good idea. We all lose who we are a little if we allow ourselves and put on a persona. In doing so our clients lose who they are dealing with and become out of touch with us and our brand.

Now I am known to pen some pretty lengthy tomes which can be overwhelming and I think in the beginning I will just put it all on there and sort it out later. For now though I will use my blog to communicate what I would like to do and to add some business therapy for myself. I honestly don’t know how much about photography I’m going to talk about, because my life is a journey and I’m not the same person I was 5 years ago. I’ve learned so much and I think that if you read my blog that you will learn quite a bit as well.

Looking forward to seeing you in the next post. Some posts will have pictures and some won’t. It will depend on how I’m feeling.

WPPI Platform Class Christine Tremoulet

Christine Tremoulet who penned WordPress which this part of my blog is based on speaks about the importance of telling the story behind the shot. As the Sexiness Avenger she explains that we are wired to put a story to it. Our brains crave stories and in the absence of a storyline we will make one up. This means that it is important to fill in the blanks as much as possible and with images pretty much all the time.
