Sweet Shot Tuesday

Welcome to our 42nd Sweet Shot Tuesday! I cannot believe that number. For the regulars – you’ve got nearly a year’s worth of Sweet Shots. The improvement in our shots, collectively, has been so much fun to watch.

I also have the privilege of announcing the winners to last week’s Sweet Shot Tuesday giveaway from Kristy at Life in Reflection. Not only is she a Sweet Shot Tuesday sponsor – she is also a regular here with her gorgeous artwork. Don’t forget to visit her.

#1 Carmen from A Lovely Journey
#2 Denise from Denise Feagans Photography
#3 Tabi from, well… Tabi. 🙂

Please shoot me an email, so I can get you in touch with Kristy!

Next on the agenda – I’m excited to announce that my friend and pro photographer / photo educator Kent Weakley and I will be co-hosting a twitter party. We’re going to be taking your questions live – from photo blogging, tech questions, camera questions, lighting questions, equipment questions. We know you have them, and Kent is an amazing resource to help me tackle these answers.

Since 31 Days to a Better Photo, people have wanted to follow up with more intermediate questions or clarify some basic ones. Kent is the author of several eclasses, and is known for both his beautiful photography and his ability to impart knowledge clearly and concisely. What we can’t tackle in an hour on twitter will help Kent and I know what you want to see on the blogs. I’m also considering making this twitter party semi-regular, if there’s enough interest.


The hashtag will be #photochat.
Who: You!
What: Your questions answered
When:February 15th at 9pm Eastern, 8pm Central, 7pm Mountain and 6pm Pacific – chat lasting 1 hour
Where: twitter.com

I recommend Tweetdeck or Tweetgrid and make a column for the #photochat hashtag. These parties usually move pretty fast! There will be a linky sign up for interest in the party coming soon! You’ll be able to link up your twitter URL so you can see other attendees.

Okay – onward! Let’s see your Sweet Shots!

  4. Oh how fun. I might just have to join twitter to listen in. However I will just have to catch the next one if you do another. I have a meeting on Tue eve, and I’m in the pacific time zone.

  5. : ) I can’t really understand twitter, but I will try to just for this party!

  6. That stinks, I will be hosting the B90days chat that night, same time. 🙁

  11. I have to second what Amy Avery up there says. Thank you! I am looking forward to the Twitter party, that is right up my alley – but I too am a Twitter virgin, I am hoping I can figure that sucker out. 🙂

    Thanks again Darcy – I love looking at everyone’s Sweet Shots, you inspired me to create a blog and join in the fun, this is my first week participating. 🙂

    (PS – do you mind if we link to this page on facebook/twitter/blog for the Twitter party? Sorry if that’s a dumb question, just don’t want to overstep any bounds being new and all.) 🙂

    • Of course – the more the merrier! Invite anyone you think has photo questions they want answered. Kent and I will be having a twitter name sign up soon. working on the logistics for all this.

      It’s a new idea for Kent and I, too, so we’re learning as we go. And what we figure out this party, we’ll make better for the next one!
