Photoshop & Photography Community
First off, I’d like to wish my beautiful wife, Kim, a very Happy Engagement Anniversary! In the wee hours of April 7, 2007 after returning home from Photoshop World in Boston, Kim surprised me at my apartment to welcome me home. We spent the next several hours talking and when I presented her with my grandmother’s wedding ring, she and I decided to spend the rest of our lives together. Now, 3 years later, we have a very happy marriage, a house, an awesome puppy, and our first little one on his way at anytime.
Thank you Kim, for loving me the way you do and for sharing this adventure with me! I am truly blessed! I Love You!
And now, on with the post…
(NOTE: This post was intended to be posted last week, but there was an error between the seat and the keyboard, later found to be an Id10-T problem, when scheduling. My apologies.)
Ever since I refocused my online presence towards Photoshop and digital photography back in 2006 with the Photoshop & Photography Blogroll, one of my main goals was to develop a community of creative people who would participate in projects and contests, offer tips and tutorials, and simply engage one another as we each develop our craft.
I have been extremely fortunate over the past few years to have gained a number of great friends and contacts through our efforts here. Admittedly, I haven’t always done the best job of keeping up with some of the regular series that have been featured here – one of the unfortunate side-effects of having a day-job and not nearly enough time in the day to commit to your passions – but I know there are some devoted readers, contributors, and partners out there who have really helped make this place what it is.
As we take some steps forward in the coming weeks and months, I’d like to make things more collaborative around here. I’d really like to get to know you better and work towards developing this site more into a community that meets the needs of the readers, fosters creative growth, and inspires us all to strive for great things.
To that end, I’d like you all to take a moment and leave a comment below. Let me know where you are, what your website is (site/blog/Flickr/Twitter/etc.), what your level of experience is, and what you’d like to see here. More interactive projects to participate in? More photo and/or product reviews? More workflows/tutorials? In what capacity would you be interested in contributing (Points of View, Guest Blogger, send in your photos for review, something else entirely…)? How can we make this a better community?
Even if you just want to share where you’re from and what you do, that would be great! I’d like to hear from everyone so, at the very least, we can begin to connect as a community.
So please, fill in the comment form below and help us get things moving in the right directions so I can continue to grow and provide you with the content and resources you’ve come to expect.
Thank you in advance!
