Lately on Instagram: June 6-10, 2017

Here we are nearly the middle of June, and the weather is just now starting to heat up here in Northern Nevada.

But for now, I wanted to update y’all on some of the posts I’ve been working on and some instagram accounts I LOVE.  If I have forgotten anything please feel free to weigh in, I love hearing from you.

This Book (Iphone 7 Plus)

Read it: ‘Don’t Shoot 66 Reasons not to become a professional photographer’ by S. Dirk Schafer.   I found this book on Kickstarter, and was one of the first to receive a signed copy.  This book is on point. (and funny).

Instagram account I Love: this week

aigadesign     why I love it:  I often go outside my craft (photography) to find inspiration, and this instagram is a favorite of mine for Graphic Design, (another interest of mine).  By going outside ‘your niche’ you can learn new ways of doing things and/or see things differently which adds to the creative force behind what we do.

If you enjoyed this post, let me know, I would love to hear from you…

Until next time.
