08 Apr Ditching Perfection

I haven’t taken a day off since I returned from France on March 19th. I even missed the 24 hour project this weekend because I was stuck in my office. Yes, running international  photo workshops is amazing, there is nothing else I would rather do. But I have to admit that the time between trips is far from glamorous. I have an office assistant now and I’m giving her more and more tasks. It takes time to let go after being a solo entrepreneur for so many years. But letting go little by little of the things that suck more and more of my time has never felt so good!

There are many exciting things happening. My webinar series is very successful, the preparations for the #DoSomethingForNothing New-York-Paris exhibit are underway, I’m writing, still producing a podcast every Thursday and loving it! But best of all, I’m about to meet 10 photographers in Italy for a week of visual storytelling in Roma! So, clearly, all this time in the office between Paris and Rome is well worth it!

Last week I received the new Lensbaby Burnside 35 creative effect lens. It’s a manual focus lens designed for artists who want to experience creativity in the field, not in the computer. The beauty of all the Lensbaby lenses is that it forces you to let go of perfection. Nothing is sharp, edges disappear, bokeh becomes a magical swirl… I LOVE IT!…
