Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Social media tenets, part of Social Media for Photo and Video Pros (2013).
We've talked about the reasons why you should do this.…I'd like to push the reset button on your mental state.…A lot of folks have hang ups about social media.…They're worried that their stuff isn't good enough.…I don't want to post until it's perfect.…I put rough photos up all the time, rough videos. I get input.…I share some of my failures, as well as my successes. At the end of the day, I'm little more human,…a lot more humble, and I have better feedback.…So a couple of tenets that you need to think about.…
