Honored (okay, “geeked up”) to have one of my photos make the short list on the summary of Social Media Day at the mother of all social media blogs, Mashable.com (photo #11 in the slideshow). It’s not every day a wedding photographer gets big web guru coverage, however vague. (And I hate to watermark my images, but this is one time I’m second-guessing that decision!) It’s even more rewarding because the particular image was one that I first pre-visualized, had to schmooze to get access to the vantage point, then had to overcome technical challenges; working hard on the scene and innovatively in post-production. (I shared the technical recipe in this previous post.) It’s not that I want to make my job sound so hard. It’s just so rewarding to have something that I put so much into be one that gets recognized. Thanks to Mashable, and thanks to whomever local may have had a hand in getting my image in front of their eyes.
