As I have been working through the healing of a broken foot, I have had more time than usual to study and read and sharpen my photography skills. Sometimes when I get really busy I let my ongoing education fall to the back burner and get stuck in a creative rut. Well, tell a photographer she has to be off her foot, literally for 2 months, well what do I do. I could pound my fists and get made or, I can use this time to study, learn, teach and re-energize my creativity and my business. one of the forums I love is http://chiccritiqueforum.com/. On this forum you can not only learn a lot but you can engage with other professional photographers who have thriving businesses. You can get critiques of your work and take classes on building your business.
I really love learning from other photographers and stretching my abilities as far as possible. I want to continue to provide fresh ideas for our clients. Check out Chic Critique for some great ideas and great education opportunities that are really affordable.
Just for fun see below, at least I picked a cool color and have sweet friends who will paint my toes to match the beautiful purple.
