Hmm...sounds cool. I use Lightroom for proofing with a tv. I wonder if that be a viable option with an iPad. I specialize in boudoir so I think it would create a more intimate proofing experience.

Love this feature about Angie Piskorski and keeping a positive attitude during one of life's most trying times.
The Brave & Bright Spotlight took a week off for Spring break! This week’s introduction to our Spotlight is written by Jane Ammon, who nominated Angie Piskorski. I remember the moment I felt it. We were sitting on the side of the baseball field, she was writing in the books for her husband, Mark, who [&hellip

Thongs come with lots of promises. Never again worry about panty lines! Better yet, every time you take your pants off, your sweetheart will think you are sexy! The reality? Thongs = wedgies. Annoying. Painful. So not sexy. Wedgies are not worth it in your life or your business. What are you doing that is uncomfortable just to please others? What would happen if you stopped?
Wedgies are not worth it in your life or your business. What are you doing that is uncomfortable just to please others? Isn't it time you stopped?

I'm copying & pasting what +Holly Homer wrote in her post about this because it rings SO TRUE. The FTC is just taking things a bit TOO far. 

Here is Holly's post that goes with this photo: 
Hashtagging Motivation -

The FTC letter to Cole Haan has gotten me thinking...and a little worked up:  http://www.ftc.gov/system/files/documents/closing_letters/cole-haan-inc./140320colehaanclosingletter.pdf

Cliff notes:  Cole Haan runs contest.  To enter contest people share products Cole Haan {or other things} with contest hashtag.  FTC says motivation of people sharing was not clear enough to followers.

I totally GET that people most likely would not have shared those products or other things at that given time without the motivation of the prize.  It is actually something I have thought about when I run my own giveaways...but #ad  and #sponsored don't seem to really work for entries since 99% of the people are not going to win.

It seems BIG BROTHER to me.

It also seems to encourage the over sharing mentality of modern life.  I can't just say something.  YOU need to know my agenda.  The FTC needs to know my motivation.

Obviously I am trying to hide something.

So, we add a hashtag for contest entries:   #contest  #giveaway #entry #IdonotlikethisbutIhaveachancetowin   #HiFTC 

But what about the other social shares that we do every day that also have an agenda?

#sheisafriend   #gotitonsale   #hadtocomeupwithsomethingtopost   #heisinfluentialsoIamsharing  #wishIhadthoughtofit #tribeshare #buildingabrand   #makesmelookgood   #increasesfollowers   #hopingforpopularity   #partofmyjob   #testingsomethingout 

Are we really to the point where I need to explain my #motivation for everything I do online?

#warning for my followers:  Everything I do online is intentional.  I have my reasons.  If you are uncomfortable with that, you can write to the FTC and see if it is OK for you to #unfollow  me.

As a boudoir photographer myself, I was very picky about WHO would do boudoir photographs for me. A long time fan of Petra of Bella Boudoir's work, I was thrilled when fate lined everything up for me and I was able to visit her Kansas City studio for a session of my own for my birthday in September! Petra is an absolute professional, and she knows just what to say to make you feel amazing and fabulous about yourself. Her photographs are so beautiful, and I am so glad I made the decision to go to her for my session! It was worth the detour out of my way to visit her beautiful studio, without a doubt!

Regina is one of the most delightful people you could possibly work with - she is the type of person that will put you completely at ease, keep you calm, and just keep everyone smiling. Her years of photojournalism education and experience give her a unique perspective. Nothing at all escapes her attention - she sees every little detail, nuances of family relationships, and everything else. I can not say enough good things about her! She is inspiring, amazing, and just wonderful!
