We’re delighted to publish the latest article to Lola Mitchell’s App Nerds Workshop Column. In case you’re new to this wonderful column we wanted to give you a little background. Lola’s bi-weekly Column is called ‘The App Nerds Workshop‘. It is a virtual classroom, an environment for new talent to share their work, for Lola to share some of the ways she uses apps and for the not so new talent to share some secrets. Lola sometimes assigns broad themes to keep the creative juices flowing. Your minds will be tickled into creating, experimenting, daring, dreaming, making and doing.
We have a dedicated Flickr group where you can submit your images for consideration, please follow the link to that.
This week is another inspiring article and we are sure you will love it, over to you Lola…(foreword by Joanne Carter).
“I always read that you should take your time editing and taking photos, creating. That it is not a race and the goal is not to post daily but post quality pics.
Well I did not really listen, I always posted right away. Especially at the beginning.
My process was take the photo, that I could sit on for a while. But once I started editing, I would do it in one sitting and post immediately. In fact to me it was to help me call a photo done and helped me avoiding over-editing. Or so I thought.
It turns out I do not post right away. In fact in the past months I have done the opposite. Even if I am extremely happy with an edit, I sleep on it.
I actually think that it is a really good advice that is given time and time again. Now the funny thing is that I edit a lot (on my iPhone) it is like knitting or cooking for me. Since I am constantly taking photos I always have things I want to tweak, play around with, try. And most times these pics will never be posted anywhere. Today I was looking for a photo in my hard drive and I came across one of these. But I was surprised at how much I liked it : )
So I guess the moral of the story is do take it slowly, sleep on it, but do look back. 🙂 Even when you think you are just playing the results can be interesting.
So many great photos in our Flickr Group Please please keep uploading here“
