Every week in our fun 8-part series, I throw out the invitation to ask questions, make comments and share thoughts. THANK YOU one and all for doing so! As part of the awesome shares, a question was raised I thought warranted its own post. Thanks to Elizabeth for posing it! Continue reading “The Everyday Genius of Your Artistic Voice: Q&A”→
I’ve been friends with the indomitable, completely awesome Jan Kabili since the early days of Google+. She’s part of the gifted group of photographers, artists, teachers and inspirers that I was privileged to meet when we all leapt into the great unknown of that fledgling social platform. Jan has the energy of a thousand, a ready, infectious smile and you may know her from Lynda.com where she’s one of the top instructors of Photoshop and Lightroom.
Jan now has a fabulous new podcast called “TheFIX” over at This Week In Photo dot com, where she talks with a variety of wonderful photographers about how they do their magic in-camera and in post-processing.
I was THRILLED when she asked me to join her! She asked me to share a bit about how I think about my photo processing, what tools I use … and as always, we laughed a lot and had a ball in this visit about creating art and inspiration with photography.
"Love your blog. I stop by for the photography, I linger for the philosophy."

"A beautiful mind will produce beautiful results. And to say the least, yours is a beautiful mind! Thank you for your wisdom and your inner "speak," as they both produce true art from the heart …"

"Thank you Karen. A wonderful story but only the tip of the iceberg, the bigger part below the water is all the thousands of photographers you have inspired to chart their own journey, I know as I am one of them."
"Karen, thank you for the wonderful two day post. Your insights are truly thought provoking. I have never been a teacher, nor will I ever be, but to see someone see the light is a wonderful moment. Thanks again."
"As usual, another terrific story. I’m glad I found you but I have to be honest. I didn’t find you on Google + but did on Scott Kelby’s “The Grid”. Thanks for the inspiration in both images and by the pen/keyboard."
"Gads-what a girl! Thanks for the story, it is beautiful."
"Awesome story Karen — I loved reading about your life transformed. Of course I loved the photography theme and the geek in me is forever curious about the power of tech and the power of social platforms. But … for me it is the arc of lives transformed that inspires. Thank you so much for sharing. See you on G+ and in the Arcanum!"
