Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Showing a genuine you, part of Social Media for Photo and Video Pros (2013).
What it means to be genuine?…Well, you want to get your work out there for people to see, but it should be work that you're proud of.…Sometimes that's going to personal, sometimes it's going to professional, …but make sure it's something that brings a smile to your face.…It's not important to put everything up, just put the stuff up that you want to be known for.…A little bit of self filtering goes a long way.…So for example, I'm getting increasingly comfortable putting my pictures out there.…I love using a site like 500px to share and get feedback from others.…
I don't worry so much about the scores, but it does make me feel good that sometimes people like my photos.…And it's good to get that material out there, particularly, when you get comments from others…that help you understand or get a better insight into your own work.…Sometimes people will see things in your work that you don't see and a little bit of criticism…or a little bit of praise can strengthen your artistic vision.…I like getting my stuff out there and it's good for feedback.…
