Virtual Event: HoustonPhotowalks Follow Friday!

What's Follow Friday?

Let's get our Self-Promotion engine going for our 3rd anual Follow Friday!

Follow Friday is a chance for you to post/share your online personal profile link(s). For example if you're a player on Twitter, or post like mad on Flickr and/or 500Pix, this is your chance post some links.

In return, as other folks post their links throughout the day, you check out their stuff, and "Like", "Follow", "Share", and "Join" the stuff you think is noteworthy.

Why Follow Friday?

It might seem a little strange to market your photography to photographers, but its cool getting kudos and nods from fellow photowalkers. Follow Friday is also one of our favorite ways to keep the fun going even when it's insane too hot outside.

How Follow Friday works

Anytime this Friday, post your *personal* social media profile link(s) in a single comment on THIS event page. You can post two or three links, more than that would be kinda spammy. So pick your favorites. Throughout the day, everyone else will be posting THEIR profiles too, giving you lots of interesting links to click on!

Remember to include the "http://" on the front of your links so Meetup will treat them as a hyperlink!

      Thanks! And I've decided to completely redesign my site. As a designer in a former life, I'm sick of looking at this one so it may take a bit longer to make all those decisions that go with designing a new site... :)

    Joe this was a fantastic "event". I've always known there was a lot of talent in this group from the event photos posted. But it was really great to see the work that folks are doing outside the group too. I'm amazed and inspired by what I've seen.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/17381206@N07/?savedsettings=9039725330#photo[masked]

    Lately, I've been snapping a lot of pics with my iPhone and editing them with iPhone camera apps. And I've taking a lot of pics of 5th Ward neighborhood churches, not because I'm religious, but because I can't believe how many there are in one area of town. Also, I love manipulated photos, so almost all the photos on my 'stream have been manipulated, which is something I know a lot of members of this group don't like.

    1 · June 14, 2013

    • Angel

      Loving the carnival shots. I also really like the processing. A lot of your work has a "mixed media art" feel to it that I find really nice! and your use of perspective is really interesting.

      Sergio, Joe, Cindi, Debi, Janet. Thank you for the very kind words. Janet, some women make being worthwhile. Janet was one of those. She took an enormous lemon of life and made my life lemonade.

    Some very interesting and impressive work is done by photowalk members. Many I follow on Flickr but always enjoyable to see just how accomplished many of these folks are. A tremendous variety of subject matter interests from astronomy to snakes and everything between--I think there was a zebra or two also. Thanks to everyone for sharing.

    June 15, 2013

  • Virginia Ann U.

    This was great. I got to see the work of others that we don't often share. I wish that people would of offered some comments on all of the participant's pictures. Being that I have been taking pictures for a long time but have just gotten into the art aspect of photography I would have appreciated some constructive criticism or praise from the more seasoned photographers. Thanks all for the views of your diverse and wonderful albums.

    • James W.

      Thanks to all for the very nice comments ... Janet, I'd have to give some thought to whether or not I could teach someone the artistic style I've developed over the past couple of years ... with the right images, there's a certain look that I try to achieve. I usually start with HDR to bring out the details, but I keep the image looking real. I also do quite a bit of tweaking within LightRoom (i.e., clarity, vibrance, shadows, contrast, etc) until I get to the look I want. Sometimes I can get the look I want without using HDR.

      1 · June 14, 2013

    • Janet M.

      Thanks for responding! Well, your work is beautiful and I suspect that it's beautiful right out of the camera! I just tweak and tweak my photos and they never come out looking as good as yours! I look forward to seeing more of your work!

      June 14, 2013

  • Janet M.

    Ok, last link, I promise. This is my personal blog where I share my photos and experiences during my annual Autumn trips to Salem, Massachusetts. I won 2nd place in a photo contest in Salem and they made my photo into a Salem postcard. That is the main photo you see at the top. Also, the other photo that you see of an orange house was featured in the 2011 Salem Tourist Guide. The header at the top rotates so you may have to refresh to see the photos. You can scroll down and see my photos that help me tell my stories! Thanks again for looking!

    If you're into facebook, please follow and be my friend. I love the feedback.

    Is anyone interested in sharing photos? I would love to have new references. From what I've seen, you guys are fantastic photographers. I don't really need good shots. I need references. I don't copy anything directly but I will study the elements of a building or animal and then come up with my own version. Alot of my photos are the same way. They are studies instead of 'brilliant compositions."

      LOL, don't feel bad. My new work-at-home lifestyle had me thinking I should be getting my gear ready for a sunrise photowalk tomorrow at Kemah. Happens to all of us. :) Just trying to rush Friday along I guess. Its so easy losing track of Thursday now that Seinfeld is gone.

      June 13, 2013

    • Joe L.

      Thats great Michele Wambaugh! If you're on a full-day photowalk and can't post a hyperlink into a comment field, I totally understand. You don't even have to explain or leave a comment! If you change your mind, you know how to find the comments field. You don't even have to RSVP to participate! Glad you finally get to go on a "real" photowalk! Since you joined the photowalk group 6 months ago, we've had 10 photowalks and you haven't been able to attend any of them. There was the one we did after you suggested it, but you no-showed. We don't do weekly "virtual" events like you host at the other group, but we make the best of 3 or 4 a year. BTW, is this your 3rd or 4th snippy comments since our email exchange where I had to explain that I wasn't comfortable making a complete stranger a group/event organizer? I know I deleted two bad-mojo comments last week.
