Welcome to Grab Shots - Just like grab shots in photography these will be just as random. It's a series of random thoughts about the photographic industry, people in general, business and life. I'm going to keep them short and do my best to "plant a few seeds".
I admit it, I miss a few typos now and then, but I still proofread everything. Well, many of you don't proofread anything - not your posts, copy on your website, even brochures and flyers. If you're going to be publishing something then you at least need to pay attention to grammar basics and spelling.
Every day I look at dozens of sites. Sometimes I can't understand what the photographer is even trying to say. It's only because they didn't proof-read what they wrote. So, here are some suggestions before you publish anything.
We all make mistakes, but that's not what you need to worry about. Pay attention to what you're writing and make sure everybody else is going to understand what you were trying to say.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
