If you have someone take the photo with your phone instead of using a selfie stick, they own the rights to the Photo. Even with a personal photo this could be problematic if it's not someone you know personally.

There is also the possibility of them dropping your phone, or running off with it... so selfie sticks actually address a legitimate issue.

I usually agree with Jared on a lot of things but this is something we will have to agree to disagree on. It's a product that solves a problem. If you have an expensive phone, handing it to a stranger to take a picture is something you're going to think twice about.But it doesn't mean you shouldn't capture a moment.

Finding a Mentor can be extremely important in your journey as a Creative. Having someone to show you what is possible, answer questions or set a good example for you, can have tremendous value. But what if you don't have access to a mentor locally?

I tackle this issue and more in this episode of the Create Something Awesome Today Podcast!

+Tonic Ascent It won't let me reply to you directly on your comment. My advice is you have to find something to fall in love with and share. That's what it comes down to. If you love games. Share your love of games. If you love anything share it. If you're struggling maybe you share that in the hopes it helps other.

That is the best advice I can give.

Your comment on my channel would'nt let me reply so I'm doing it here. Yes the laptop is working great for me, even as a budget solution it is doing high quality work and has been a great return on investment.

My new Asus Laptop is working out very well for me and my full review will be out this Tuesday, but now I'm looking at some things I need to upgrade for traveling and working on the go.
Asus Laptop is the F555LA 1TB 8GB Intel i5
http://amzn.to/1LKbqQS

So here is what I'm thinking about for my completely new mobile setup working on the road:

I'm going to probably end up getting a new Wacom tablet that is small enough to travel with. The Wacom Pen and Touch small seems like a good fit and is only $99 http://amzn.to/1HDaGLG

But I really need a new portable hard drive.And I'm going to go with Western Digital since they are working for my other stuff.
http://amzn.to/1LKarAg

My old one's work okay but you always have to worry about anything tech that is for 4-5 years old. I got those when I got my previous laptop. So I'm looking at getting a few of these WD Passport Ultra's for traveling with.

I might also get a Lacie Rugged External as a backup of the entire laptop system. http://amzn.to/1LOkGV3

If I want to do the podcast or do tutorials while traveling I've been looking at how I may want to do that and I'm thinking of getting the Audio Technica ATR2500 USB Mic http://amzn.to/1HDaQTk
Its a bit better than my ATR2100 so I may get two of these until I'm ready to upgrade to RodeProcaster Microphones. Probably after the podcast starts making money.

I've already bought my new Web Cam which is the Logitech C920 and I've already done some live streaming and client conferences with it and it works great. http://amzn.to/1LOl9qk

The audio on this laptop could be better but I don't use the speakers, I mostly use my Sennheisser Headphones for it.
http://amzn.to/1Chf4jc

So that is what I'm thinking in terms of my new ‪#‎Laptop‬ setup covering audio, live streaming, video conferencing, backups and external data and using a drawing tablet. I may also get some bluetooth speakers and or a bluetooth mouse for the rare times when I decide to do anything gaming.

If you want to recommend any gear that would be very cool. If you have questions about my setup and what I'm buying or what software I'm using for my screen recording, audio editing or ‪#‎videoediting‬ let me know in the comments. Let me know what ‪#‎Tech‬ you are using in you mobile setup.

You realize that all the comment spamming you're doing is going to hurt your channel and you're not going to be able to grow it or to get sponsorship in the future if you keep it up right?

For those of you who do #Cosplay my friend +Blikku has some advice on contacts and where she buys them and about finding quality lenses. She also can tell you about opaque contacts for those of us with darker eye colors to begin with!

Story
Tagline
Photographer Graphic Designer Digital Artist
Introduction
Roberto Blake is a Graphic Designer from Brooklyn New York, with a mutli-discipline skill set that alllows him to design for across mediums. Roberto takes photography assignments and digital art and illustration commissions.

"Graphic Design is more than just what I do, its a core part of who I am and what I believe in. Today's Graphic Designers are more like alchemist, we take something, break it apart, and remake it into something people can use. We turn abstractions into stunning visuals that drive people in one way or another. We turn words into STATEMENTS, we turn art into MOVEMENTS, and were turn people in SYMBOLS."

"Through Graphic Design and what its taught me I've learned how to create my own bridge between what can be imagined and what is real, and it is by this philosophy that I live and breathe. Beyond my career Graphic Design is WHO I AM."
