I can do more than surf the Internet, ya know?

I do actually sit down and read a book or two. I do sometimes take out time away from the Internet. At this moment these are the two books that I am reading. I have others, but they were in the other room at the time of shooting. :-) lol

The Dale Carnegie is one that the PPA suggested that you read if you are a photographer and trying to run a successful business. The second is one that I picked up at one of the camera stores. I hadn't seen that one before and thought I'd give it a look. So far both have some outstanding advice in them.

Especially the Successful Self-Promotion for Photographers one. It stresses the import qualities of being successful like being true to yourself, knowing what you want and being willing to challenge yourself, to name a few. The last statement I found to be very true especially since we're on day 29 of our 365 challenge. I have found that 24 days (remember I started on 1/5??) of shooting has been very challenging. But I'm hanging in there. So I've got 24 down 336 to go! Woo hoo!

Have you had your portrait created today?
