I’ve said it before, but this time of year is truly magical. The creativity seems to soar! Josh and I are inspired by so much around us and today we bring you photos from a project we did inspired by none other than Christmas Lights!!!
Anyone can take a picture. We have Instagram to show us that! But it takes someone who understands light to be able to manipulate it and create art with it. These images here are shared from an exercize in capturing personality through light. There is a wide variety in the finished project which is unusual for us as we like to have a theme to the finish in the end product. Ah but light is fluid, like personality and so this project is all about mood and how light plays to those moods. Enjoy! Comment! Share! (Just please remember to give proper photo credit)
In this time of year we all enjoy the renewal the light and the New Year brings. It’s a hope and promise of good things to come. This season has been marred by an unthinkable event. Josh and I choose to find solace in the good and beauty that is out there and be reminded that there is far more of it than the other. Our holiday wish for you: Let’s revel in the joy that is children. Let’s play in the magic of the season. Let’s hold on to light. hope, and all things good. That said, let’s light it up!!!
You made it through the year!!! Congratulations!!!! Evaluate where you’ve been and how far you’ve come. Have you followed the monthly challenge assignments? If so, you should find yourself in a better place then you were a year ago today. Remember, this industry is a marathon, not a sprint!! It takes time to cultivate authentic relationships and it takes time to learn the workings of the business. This month is typically slow for auditions so relax and watch old classic movies. Take time to learn some of Hollywood’s history. You will be surprised at how much there is to glean my studying these great films and the actors, directors, and producers who made them.
What will the new year bring for you? This is the month to get your ducks in a row before pilot season. Make sure your reps have all the materials they need to market you properly. Take a workshop or two and don’t forget to give back!! Find a way to spread good cheer. It can only do good and you never really know how where it can go. There karma things often find a way to come back in really interesting ways.
Remember ever this is an evolving business and growth..never stop learning! Never stop growing! Never stop dreaming!
We hope you enjoyed the challenge assignments this year of 2012. In 2013 we will bring you a new monthly series. If you have thoughts or ideas of what you would like to see us blog about, comment here or feel free to connect with us via email, twitter, instagram, and Facebook. All the best to you this holiday season!!
