Do Photographers Complain Often? Or are they like any other Career Individual?

I stumbled upon another great article from Fstoppers. Entitled Eight Annoying Things Photographers Do That Harm the Industry. (By Paul Adshead)

His List, I broke down, is as follows:

1. By Being Creepy

2. Forgetting Manners

3. Name-Dropping Too Much

4. Not Giving Credit on Social Media

5. Breaking Promises

6. Obsessing Over Gear

7. Rejecting Any Kind of Criticism or Suggestions

and

8. Telling Lies

The read is interesting as there is a well written and detailed response under each segment. Worth checking out for certain. The one I responded to the most was #7 Rejecting Any Kind of Criticism or Suggestions. Now this goes both ways sharing AND receiving. If the ego is to controlled to accept criticism, this will not help. But at the same time I have received excellent criticism and also just down right insults disguised as criticism. You have to think both through. Giving criticisms takes some thought if your truly want it to help another. And the same goes coming back.

Donald Bowers Photography and Music Video Performances

I had forgot about many of these performances I have photographed over the years. I decided to make a short vignette of some of the greatest performances and events I have been to and photographed. Florence was very overwhelmed at the size of the space as it shot up 4 stores in size. Santigold was at ease and had quite the dance squad.

Things I Want to Eat Everyday

Having a little Toddler is thrilling in so many ways. One of them is food consumption. I never thought I would eat off the floor, but i do, regularly. Take for example DumDums Lollipops, there is a still a large sized Halloween bag in our home. Needless to say there are many sticky sticks of hard candy in far corners of our home. I’ve looked at them long enough now that I have seen them enough to want to do something about it. Thats right, a small photo shot. First part is to collect the covers over a wide range, I really had to push the root beer on the kid, he seemed to only want the fruit. Oh Well, I could have faked it but he pulled the cover off in the way that only a toddler could. Torn and tattered I collected them one by one. I guess I should call his dentist. Maybe this was not a good idea at all!

Inspirational

I shot some Stock Video of an inspirational pursuit In Central Park. The young woman is an actress that has been in several short independent movies. Very outgoing and takes direction very well. We worked though a small section of Central Park in an area I frequent often. We had a gorgeous summer day and plenty of foot traffic which helped in the busy feel of the clips. The sun near the Pond was amazing at this hour and you can really see it during the stretching portion of the clip. I was surprised we didn't have any "NY" moments during the filming of this. As we shot the running section, the model complained that she did not jog and also was fine with that confession. :) I really enjoy working with people in my Photography/Video.
