Let’s just say I am not afraid to tell people what I am truly feeling. If I think something is wrong, I will voice it, and I typically won’t let it go. The members of TPP know this about me. I am also extremely critical over the photos we choose to use on social media. I am pretty much in charge of what gets posted to Instagram; however I am not the only one taking the photos. Brian and I like to have friendly little competitions of whose photos are better. We will set up the scene and both take photos of the same piece. We then proceed to argue over who took the better shot.
We never meant for this to improve our content, but it actually does. We push each other to do better and to be better. I feel it is so important to have some criticism; of course we all need a little praise too. ; ) We are learning as we move forward how important communication is, and how necessary it is to voice opinions. The one thing that goes unsaid may lead to conflict down the road. Brainstorming and talking out ideas leads to great work and growth. So speak you mind, explain your ideas, and criticize each other’s work. I think the results may surprise you.
