I’ll cut to the chase — MuseCubes need help! Of the photographic variety.
I’ve done a fairly good job with my point-and-shoot Canon, taking pictures of the MuseCubes in outdoor settings (click on the photos above to see an album of my pics).
But now that I’m about to publish a how-to booklet and a new website, I need photographs of MuseCubes in a more practical context (at the computer, for example). I’ve tried, but I just can’t get the light right. See what I mean?:
Might you (or someone you know) be willing to:
- Take some photographs of the MuseCubes? ~and/or~
- Teach me about indoor lighting and help me take my own pics?
In return I will:
- Send you a couple sets of MuseCubes to use & then keep,
- Give you credit on my website and on promo material where I use your pics
- Refer you like crazy and write a kick butt testimonial, if you want one.
One of the reasons I need help is that I’m not just looking for a standard product shot against a while or colored background. The photographs I imagine are artful, kinda funky, and tell a story about where and how people use the MuseCubes:
On a laptop keyboard. Next to writing pad/pen. Amidst paintbrushes & art supplies.
Falling out of a purse, briefcase, backpack, or diaper bag. On a conference table.
If you’re interested in helping, please email me at themusemonkey [at] gmail [dot] com. For more info about the MuseCubes, check out www.musecubes.com.
And finally — a huge thank you! MuseCubes are, through and through, a community-supported creation. On my birthday last year, over 20 folks stopped by to cut and glue. Artists across the country have submitted gorgeous art for new MuseCube products (that I’ll launch this holiday season). Folks have offered legal and financial advice.
The support has been both humbling and inspiring, and I intend the circle-of-giving to extend much further — eventually, by starting a MuseCubes foundation to support innovation in public education (in fact, in January I donated 2008 profits to support West County Community High School).
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
