Today = sensory overload! Soooooo much information in such little time! I knew how many vendors were going to be at Imaging, but I didn’t really know . . . well I guess I didn’t really conceive. I don’t even know what I saw in there, well thats not true I remember a few places and have bags, brochures, card samples, price lists, business cards, coupons and more from many others, telling me I visited those booths today. . . All I know is when I got to the entrance they had just opened up the expo and I was caught in the heard, one false move and it would not have been pretty, especially with the venti hot tea in my hand. The good news is I made it through without any injuries, though I definitely walked in a couple circles and got a little lost once or twice. I have a plan though, tomorrow I am going to one end and walking down each aisle to make sure I see everything, then Tuesday I can concentrate on specific booths with more questions and maybe even take advantage of some of the sweet deals going on.
I know you all are thinking, yikes did she spend a whole day there in sensory overload and not learn anything!?! Well, you can put your worries to rest my dears I went to four classes today! Many amazing photographers and speakers, thank you to all that shared your knowledge with the rest of us!
Two photographers I saw today you all should check out, Joel Grimes and Jennifer Hudson. Super talented people with two very different and distinct styles. They truly are artists, some may argue that photographers are simply photographers not artists, but as Joel says: “If you have a passion to create, then by definition you are an artist.”
I have been inspired and have learned so much from these two individuals and all others listened to, I can’t wait to go over all my notes and try some of their techniques . . . maybe even incorporate one or two into my brand . . . after all I am recreating my brand am I not 🙂
The new member reception was a nice retreat right in the middle of the day, thank you very much Imaging for our hidden little gathering. Cannon heat up the night welcome party to end the day, very hopping, but a very long day. Yes a long day, I must sleep now, continental breakfast at 6:30am tomorrow so I can be at class at 7am.
