I just signed up for an on-line photo "class" of sorts called SuperHero Photos. It is done by the same inspirational person who writes the SuperHero Journal. The course is several weeks long and is meant to help the participant see things differently and try new ways of taking photos. It's less of a technical "how to" and more of a "open your mind and your heart and capture what you see."
I'm also participating in HopeLab's Joy Campaign which is a 6 month endeavor to create and spread joy in celebration of their 10th anniversary. Because why wouldn't you want to create and spread joy?
There are interesting possibilities in the combination of these two activities and I look forward to sharing them with you here. I'll be posting my photos on flikr, with commentary and links here.
I'll need help along the way with some of the exercises that the photo class will be giving me, so prepare yourself. I hope that I can spread some joy in your world!
To begin this adventure, I'd like to share with you a favorite photo of my grandfather who knew how to find joy in every moment like no other person I've ever known. He knew how to have fun and how to make others feel special about themselves. I like that brand of joy.
