7.9.12 To Avoid Criticism – Monday’s Inspiration Share this:ShareFacebookTwitterEmailStumbleUponGoogle +1RedditDiggPrintLinkedIn Filed in:InspirationTagged in: photography blog | photography inspiration | start a photography business « Failure is the Condiment – Sunday’s Inspiration Photography Marketing is an art form in itself » + - 2 comments July 10, 2012 - 7:15 am Serendipity is Sweet - Thank you for your inspirations! I really enjoy finding them in my in box. I recently received a harsh “anonymous” comment on my blog and it initially sent me for a loop. But I realized that those kind of comments should be ignored. While I have a lot to work on and a long way to go in my photography journey, it is a journey and I will keep moving forward. Constructive critiques are fantastic and encouraging. Tearing someone down just to prove a point or make yourself feel better has little to do with the person you are criticizing and everything to do with you. Thank you for sharing your insights, talent and positive encouragement July 10, 2012 - 10:02 am Carrie - Thank you! I think those types of comments happen to everyone. I’ve received some comments on here that are less than friendly by “big wig” photographers and I just delete them. But I wouldn’t get any comments at all if I wasn’t doing what I do.
