Did anyone else know this?  In prepping the podcast for the transition to PLM, I am finding myself with a number of things to do, including:

  1. Composing a headshot
  2. Writing a bio
  3. Sending them images to use for the artwork

I guess the first two of these make sense, but having to pick 2 or 3 of my best photos?  Man!  Remember the post about reviewing your work I made a while ago?  It seemed like a good idea at the time, but as it turns out, I’d be dead in the water now if I hadn’t done that.  Since I did 2008, I was able to apply the same criteria to all my images from previous years too, and now I am down to about twelve total from each of the last 3 years.  To see your work culled down into 36 photos is pretty humbling.  It shows that I have made certain strides, but also that I have only scratched the surface.  As I cull those 36 down to 3, here is one that stands out for some reason:

Reflections

I’ll share more as I get this into a more manageable state.  Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow when I’ll have the Think Tank Streetwalker bag review completed along with photos of how it stacks up too.  Any other products you would like reviewed?  Share your thoughts in the comments!  In the meantime, happy shooting, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow!

  1. I find I always have the task of picking my “best” images when I haven’t been keeping up with them. Kudos to you for narrowing yours down so much… I keep changing my mind over what my favorites are and nearly start from scratch each time!

  2. Morning all, thanks for the kind words – I guess a blind squirrel CAN find a nut every once and a while! 🙂 @ Marc – the day I talked about reviewing your work is back on the 22nd of December – “Year in Review”. I’ll update this post to link back to that days content, but the direct link is here: http://www.canonblogger.com/2008/12/22/year-in-review/

  3. I really like the lily shot Jason, I can see why you consider it one of the best.

  4. Thats a great shot to use for the podcast. I’m working on my business tasks right now and one of my tasks is to archive and streamline my images for my portfolio. Never and easy thing. Looking forward to the new podcast from PLM. Kevin
