First off this week, I would like to thank all of you who have been so supportive and encouraging and for those who have been so gracious as to contribute to my series of blogger profiles. As of now, I have a total of 6 posted and another 7 coming over the next couple of weeks. It's been really fun for me to learn about my fellow bloggers and I've really enjoyed getting to know your work.
As always, if you have any ideas for who to profile in the future, or if you would like to be profiled and added to the blogroll, please email me today!
I have been working up a few ideas for other projects to embark upon here at Soup Questions and I'll have more information later as they become more fully developed. The first is along the lines of a project I've written about before called the 100 Images Project. I don't think it will be the same in all respects, and I'm open to suggestions and if anyone is interested, but I think it will be a fun endeavor.
In addition, on the Photoshop side of things, I'd like to invite members of the blogroll to submit two versions of a photo, the original and the processed version, along with a step-by-step description of what you did to get from one to the other. Feel free to include camera settings (EXIF metadata, etc.), factors considered in composition, and any other information about the shot and what you were trying to say with it.
I may start one or both of these projects later on in the spring but I'd love to hear your thoughts and interest in participating.
In the meantime, here’s what’s been happening this week in The Photoshop & Photography Blogroll:
