Well we’ve tried to hype up this mystery video for a little while now. Posted teasers and trailers (which you can see in these older posts: Teaser, Teaser 2 for ?????, Third Teaser ie Teaser #3) and now I’m happy to announce that the big day is finally here.
This sunday we’ll be launching our little project and I hope you all have an opportunity to see it. I guess that’s about all the info I can give, so until Sunday then, peeps!
You won’t notice much most likely, but our website has just undergone what I’d like to call a “massive makeover”. It seems like after I’m done making any changes to the site I’m always quite pleased with myself. Then after a while I begin to hate it. I’m not really sure if that’s going to be a continued trend or not. In hindsight I feel like every change it’s been given has always been for the better. I suppose it doesn’t matter too much so long as I’m happy with it now, right?
Hope everyone likes the new look, I know I’m quite pleased with it!
Personally, I always prefer to go it alone. For a number of reasons, though I’m not sure how to rank them, I just feel best when I’ve done something I’ve set out to do on my own steam. Afterwards… I tend to think that’s just stupid. I go back and I review my decisions to tough things out alone and I ask myself “What were you thinking, why didn’t you just get help??”. Doing things on your own is great but there are times when stepping up to the plate means knowing what you’re capable of and making the right choices at the right times.
I’m not sure if I feel like asking for help is cheating, or I’m just less proud of myself, but for whatever reason I’m quite stubborn when it comes to it. I end up putting a lot of pressure on myself and yeah I get the job done but afterwards I feel silly thinking there may have been a better way. I guess I also want to avoid taking advantage of the people around me. But that’s just silly in its own, right? Well either way – I’m going to try to put my ego aside a bit more often from now on and ask for help when a little aid can go a long way.
The reason this is on my mind is that we’re working on a project that I simply need help with. So I’ve had to ask for what help I can get and the truth is, help came. Some of it might not be the answer to all my ‘prayers’ but it doesn’t matter. Help arrives if you simply let it know it’s needed. I’m quite thankful to those that have helped and everyone seems to shrug it off, saying it’s “no big deal”. People say that, but I’m also starting to think it’s true because after some thought I realize… I say that, too! And I usually mean it.
I guess the point is if you’re as stubborn as I am about this sort of thing.. forget about it. You’re not taking advantage of people that would like to help you. In a way, you can’t. You may even be surprised or honoured or simply glad at the outcome of asking for help. So do what ever it takes to make yourself comfortable with it and ask for help. The measure of a man is not only his capacity for doing but also his capacity for knowing what he cannot do… at least without help ;).
So it’s been a super long interim and I’m quite sad about how long it’s been.. Nevertheless they’re back and you can find all the info you need at www.thursdayroundups.com.
For those of you that don’t know Thursday Roundups is a Toronto based photography group that I’ve been working on where anyone can come out and join us on a shoot. At a specified place, at a specified time.. you can meet me (usually) and join in on the picture taking fun. There will be things to learn, and people to get to know. The first three Thursdays of each month will be shooting sessions with the last Thursday of every month taking place at 2D Photography and we will be discussing and comparing images from previous roundups. We’ll also be holding giveaways to make the evening that much more interesting.
I hope to meet a lot of new people and have many opportunities to share my passion for photography. There’s no fee involved in coming and anyone and everyong is welcome. For more info on upcoming Roundups have a loot at the site! Again that’s www.thursdayroundups.com!
We’ve got a new team member here at 2D Photography! His name is Kevin Luc and I’m quite excited to have him onboard. He’s joining the team and bringing a good deal of creativity over to 2D. We’ve got a lot of new things coming up in the near future and Kevin will be a welcome addition to help rear in all the fun upcoming projects. You can check out what little info we’ve got on him (there will be more in a couple of days) here. In the mean time Kevin will be using his skills and creativity to aid in our ongoing endeavours but you expect to see more of him soon…. and perhaps a return of Casual Fridays starring myself and THIS GUY.
This is the third and final teaser for our project we hope to put out this summer. I special thanks to my friend Ben who helped us out by starring in this one on his vacation. Actually had a bit too much fun shooting this but it was worth it. Hope it gets your curiosity peaked!
