What flavor of Kool Aid you Drinking? Is it grape aka purple or Cherry aka Red? Either way, I want some

Ever notice how some people just don’t know when to mind their own business? Never seems to fail that no matter what someone may be doing, every mofo got their mouths on something they don’t know anything about. The only reason why they think they know something is because they may have heard it from someone else.

It makes me wonder if people really do not have anything going on their respective lives. Does it really affect your world that someone may be doing well and you feel the need to bring them down. As an African-American female or Black woman( believe I am comfortable with both) I have noticed in my race especially that we can’t stand it when one of us uses what God gave us to succeed and actually does it. I can never understand why we have the crab mentality. Don’t ever want someone to better and if they are, they better find a way to hook you up. But I digress.

All your business doesn’t necessarily need to be out in the street but if somehow manages to get there, you may want to re-think the mofo’s you actually tell anything to. You can even test your theory by telling a bold face lie and see how it may come back to you.  You then might be able to tell who to keep close and who to leave on the curbside for NY’s Strongest to come pick up.

It has nothing to do with their work. I don’t like them as a person.

 

Hi all. Every once and awhile I come across someones work that is great , down right phenomenal. But as with most of these networking sites these days, you do have the opportunity to interact via a chat client or room. There you can kinda get a handle on the type of person you may be dealing with. Problem is of course some people view as just the net , it doesn’t mean anything but in all honestly it does. If you come of as an asshole, people will think of you as one. Doesn’t really matter whether or not people in the chat may know you personally, you are viewed to a stranger as an asshole. Some say they don’t care and they do not have to. Afterall once they sign off, they have a “real-life”. The truth of the matter is the Internet has become a part of our real lives because there was a time when we did function without it, but it very rare these days for someone not to have an email address, or a website or as it seems to making people’s careers a blog.  So I am sorry if some people feel the Internet isn’t real because it is. It amazes me how people can compartmentalize things. The Internet isn’t real yet we use to find info on real things.  Amazing isn’t it?

But I will tell you , there are some photographers I don’t like and I am sure there ate those that don’t like me. I don’t like people who constantly need the ego stroke, The LOOK AT ME syndrome, If you don’t say hi to me first I will not talk to you. Fucking PRIMAS.   If you are good , know it but don’t let it consume you. There are people who are willing to pay you for your talent so basically the stroke comes from the pay check. If your peers like your work, even better. Try not to make it the expectation that every morning you wake up, somebody better tell me I am good or I will throw  a tantrum.

So not a good look

The Reluctant Critic

Nicole ID Models

Hi All. I know its been a bit but I am re-tooling my blog a lil bit and making a few changes.  This particular blog comes because sometimes I get asked to critique someones photographic work.  Now, I am not by any means think I am qualified to to critique anyone’s work but then again we do have many critics out there, so I guess Ican be one of them.  I know what I like and I what I don’t. I can tell you. Most of the time I am not a nude work fan but that’s cause 99.9% of the time, it seems to be done extremely poorly and almost looks like some guy or girl photographer  just wanted to get some body naked in front of their lens. Granted, as photographers we do need to grow and learn but sometimes, I don’t see growth.  This is part of the reason why I don’t like to give critiques. After who am I to judge someone. But , when I am asked , I am honest and open with my assessment and try my best not to be brutal.

After all, I would expect the same courtesy in return.

peace

Jan
