share your passion?

In all of the lurking I have done over the last few months, I have forgotten where I saw this question, but I *do* remember it being asked .... someone asked us to identify our passions when it comes to photography.

Some answered portraits, others lifestyle, other nature, etc ...

How would you guys feel about sharing your passion and your perspective on that passion with the board in the new year?

Maybe Katie could talk to us about what she looks for when composing lifestyle portraits or Amy could talk to us about some of the lessons she has learned with her nature photography?

Just one person a month on a voluntary basis.

Even if you just wanted to share a collection of links to places that you go for inspiration.

What do you guys think? I know that I would love to learn how to see the world through my lens the way some of you guys see it. Just a different perspective and a chance to learn something new.

Let me know what you think.

Best,
GiGi

I'd like to start compiling topics and asking for volunteers - b/c I don't want to rope anyone into participating.

some of the topics could include:

** b&w processing
** nature
** macro
** sports
** head shots
** landscapes
** seniors
** families
** newborn/babies
** silhouettes
** still images/product photography

Please let me know if you have any topics to add or switch out. Ideally, I'd like to have 12 - one for each month next year but right now these are all that come to mind.

I will take 'sports.' Though I am no expert by any means, it *is* where my passion lies. I will do it in January so we can all get a feel for what this little project will be like.

Sound OK?

Let me know if you can think of any other topics or if you would like to volunteer. I don't think we need to limit to just a single person either. I would like for this to be a bit of a 'conversation' where those who have a passion for a particular style of photography can share what they know, love, and have learned about their favorite areas of photography.

Best,
GiGi

I'd like to take families. Smile I love doing family shoots! I could also do a "children" topic as well, if we need another one.

I'd love it if people could share their advice on a variety of topics, wish I could contribute but I am pretty new to photography so I'm still pretty unsure on many things.
