I’d like to give you a short to do list… let’s see if we can’t make the love of photography translate into something even more.
- Pass it On. Mentor at least one youth a year. This can be a scouting group, a church group, a relative, or an acquaintance. The questions they ask will inspire you to learn more too.
- Take Family Pictures. Start making some snapshots again and get your loved ones back in the frame. Not every picture needs to be fine art, make some memories that are just for you and those you love.
- Call Your Mother. It is Mother’s Day after all… and even if it wasn’t, it’s still a good idea to say thanks every once in a while.Via photofocus.com
I don’t have any apprentices. My nice initially showed some interest and I donated my used Nikon D40 to her. Since then though her interest has waned. I want to do more of number 2 including making photo books. I feel nostalgia for sitting around with a book of family photos talking to the kids about the personalities of the people in our extended family.
I did call my mother.
