The Click Chick
Pin a Little
So last time I told you I would tell you about my new obsession. And quite frankly millions of people’s obsession.
Pinterest is a fairly new website that is for the crafty, the chef, the home school teacher, the designer, and of course the photographer. Anyone can use it, you can actually look for anything. It is amazing.
So here is how it works.
- Get invited.
- Start your account.
- Build your boards according to your own interests – some suggestions are recipes, DIY, Holidays, Photos.
- Follow your friends
- Pin and repin photos and things that you like!
So if you aren’t used to pinning, this could be a little confusing. You “pin” things you like and then catagorize them into “boards.” So for example, I have different types of portrait genre boards – maternity, newborn, toddler, family, engagement, etc. Then when I see things on the Internet or on Pinterest that I like, I can repin them into one of my many boards so I can easily go back and find them.
I do this a lot to show my clients what to wear on family sessions or concepts for their next session. Photographers are loving this site for creative exploration as well as a great way to communicate to their base.
But as stated before it is not just for photographers. I have spent hours pinning recipes, room designs, holiday décor, things to occupy a toddler, etc. The sky is the limit. I have 30 boards with over 1300 pins. I go there frequently for gift ideas, dinner, gifts, home decor, stuff to do with my son on a rainy day, etc.
So if you are looking for some creative inspiration or just a way to waste an hour. Check out Pinterest. Once on, find me! I have a ton of pins you’ll love. Enjoy and don’t blame me if you never get anything done again!
So until next time. Keep clickin’ because sometimes it takes 1000 photos to get 1 good one.
