    Default thinking aloud

    I've been thinking a lot about the responses I read on the 'Attn Lurkers' thread.

    It's true that many on this board are looking for pro- or semi-pro- quality results from our photography. Whether it's a future (or present) career move or just wanting that look in our family photos.

    But that is not ALL that this board is about. We all started here b/c we're a click happy group, afterall.

    And I know we all take pics that we just don't post b/c they're just for us or our family or friends. Just a moment we wanted to keep. Even if it was just taken w/ our iPhone.

    First, I want to encourage any and everyone to post away! I personally love seeing your shots, snaps, and priceless portraits! BRING 'EM ON!

    And second, I've been thinking about bringing back a thread we used to share week-to-week in days gone past. Just a 'my 3 favorites' of the week kind of thread. I was thinking about posting it on Fridays and that way we'd have the weekend and a whole work week to pick a few favorites to share with the group.

    No voting, no c&c. Just a share of the 3 pics that caught your eye, made you smile, or even sniffle that week.

    Anyone interested?

    Let me know.

    GiGi, I totally agree!! In fact several times, months ago, I mentioned here & there that sometimes it gets too "stuffy" in here and it'd be nice to just keep it more relaxed and fun IN ADDITION to the invaluable learning of pro photography, which we all love indeed and will always need help with.

    I love the idea of the weekly fun share. I love seeing everything, the serious and the fun.

    ITA! While I may not be able to get portrait worthy pics, I always find the time to get some snaps of my one year old in action. And really, while I love to see others work and build their skills by sharing pics, I would also really enjoy looking at the snaps of our photo board ladies' lives and families and day to day fun!
    And, I think if a board member doesn't enjoy that type of stuff, that's okay too, they don't have to participate in the "just for fun" stuff, right?

    Love the idea! There are some snaps that I LOVE but don't feel like I should post because they are just that, snaps. I think it would get more sharing going on.

    I'd be interested! It'd give me incentive to take more pics these days too.

    Love the idea! I kind of stuck that thread up there to ge some feedback on how we can attract and keep more posters. I think we need to remember that not every post is for CC and sharing is fun and inspiring! THANKS

    awesome! We'll start this Friday ... so look back over the last week or so (no hard dates) and start thinking of your favorite 3 to share.

    I'll post the thread on Friday and we'll keep it going until the NEXT Friday.

    Best,
    GiGi
