Confessions of an Instagram Junkie. Why I love “In the moment” photography

I admit it. I am an Instagram junkie. Why? Because it’s “in the moment” photography, quite different from my career in television and video production, which is all about having a plan (and a budget) for production that achieves a specific goal for the client. Instagram is about seeing something interesting and being able to capture and share it quickly.
Instagram is fun for me because it encourages spontaneity of thought in composition and speedy interaction with others about your image. All of the images in this post were created with very little forethought. The ability to apply a filter, enhance the image and post it to your network all within five minutes of having the first idea of the image frees up my creative energy. I hope you enjoy these photos, I enjoy snapping them… Follow me -> Instagram: tracetvfilm

How I Screwed Up Branding, How You Can Do Better!

Introducing The Social Freelancer Blog and Facebook Page

Why?

I have dreamed up some great names for businesses, bands and websites over the years, but gave very little thought as to how to protect them. I thought as long as I was using something as an email address or domain name on website, I was somewhat protected. WRONG.

Communicating With Color

Image Communications Expert Cathrine Hatcher discusses color and how it affects public perception in this video for TraceTV – Film – Music – Social Media.

YouTube Preview Image

We are all constantly communicating, both verbally, and non-verbally. Cathrine’s message here exposes how our choice of color in clothing can affect those that we meet with in our daily lives. It is interesting to note the origins of our perceptions of blue and red in particular. It also seems evident that these concepts carry over to the colors chosen for websites, advertising, television; anywhere, anytime we are communicating a message to one or more individuals. As soon as you arrive for a meeting, or as soon as a potential client is visiting your blog or website they are forming subconscious impressions of you based simply on color.
