Down There By The Train: "..and we'll give you photo credit."

benmorse:

Dear potential people I work with:

I love taking pictures. Some times, I’ll even offer to do it for free. However, offering someone “photo credit” is massively insulting. I know you don’t mean it to be, but let me explain.

If I posted an MP3 of your music, I would hopefully say who it was by. If…

Camera Collection is a rad short animation about famous cameras in history!

Antonio Vicentini animated, Billy Brown illustrated, and Ben Hantoot wrote the music.

If you’re like most of us, you log in to Facebook every day, write something in the box. And then what?
Instead of leaving them on screen, poet and writer Rishi Dastidar has  been transcribing his status updates into notebooks for over three  years. That’s more than a thousand posts that he’s now recorded and  kept.
Why? According to Rishi, “It struck me quite early on in using  Facebook that status updates were more than that, and actually provided  quite a deep glimpse into you and your personality.
“I was interested in how that might look over an extended period of  time, and what that might reveal about someone. And it made sense to  start with me. I hope this inspires people to think a bit more deeply  about how they use Facebook, and how much of themselves they share.”

Don’t settle.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
