Share your photography

Things I recommend sharing online

  1. Photography
  2. Art
  3. Genealogy Research

There are more, but these are ones that you and others will benefit from sharing.

It's Scary Out There

Yes, It certainly can be daunting to put your heart and soul out there, but do it anyway! One of the best ways to improve as a photographer (or artist or genealogist) is to share your work in public. You'll find other photographers and learn from them (contact me if you don't know any others, hey, it's a start) and again improve your own photography. 

Share like you're in kindergarten 

Be confident that sharing will make you feel good. Remember those school days where you shared with your classmates and it made you feel good? Same thins applies to sharing your images. People will like them, some will tell you they like them and you'll feel better. Yes, there will be the occasional nay sayer that will want to pick your photos apart, but they're few and far between, so steel your will and get those images out there. As you share, you'll push yourself to share better photos and that will help you take some risks and find new locations and techniques. Let people know you want to expand your horizons when you share. Don't worry, you'll like it! 

Share to become humble

People will critique your work -- whether you want them to or not -- and it will be fine. Constructive criticism will help you refine and enhance your skills and less thoughtful criticism will teach you resilience. (Yes, there may be some days that you won't want any more resilience! Share anyway!) You'll learn a tremendous amount from people and if you use the input to improve what you are putting out into the world you are still the winner. 

Start Sharing Now! 

Not sure where to start sharing? Facebook and Instagram are good options. If you're sharing on Facebook make your image public - be brave, you can do it!
