I learned a lot about people. I shot photos of over a hundred people in 5 months. People that I knew and people that I had meet for the first time.
What I learned the most was about people and their willingness to give. People want to support organizations that are really trying to make a difference in their communities.
People want to be apart of something bigger and creatively different. I feel as though I was able to accomplish that with Project Bookface.
What I learned from taking the photos more importantly is that a project like this takes time and lots of detailed work. I had to make sure each photo looked it’s best.
I also learned that preparing the images to be put on display took a lot of hard work. I was blessed to have great people around me who gave me such great support.
But I think the biggest lesson that I took from it all was the promotional side of it. How important it is to promote your photo projects or business. I sometimes only like to say something once because I do not like to be annoying. “Here comes that photo guy with his project thing…”, is what I think most people will say about me.
I only hope to inspire people to make change. Think outside of their box and challenge themselves to be the difference in their community.
