Hi there!

I’m Mitchel Lensink and this is Dialogue, an infrequent newsletter about photography & other things. You probably joined because you saw my photography or read a blog.

You can one-click unsubscribe any time at the bottom of this email.

First of all, thank you so much for subscribing to my humble newsletter. I started this thing without any expectations but now there’s already 14 of you! Sure that’s not a lot, but it’s a lot to me and for that I want to thank you.

So, thank you.

I sent out a little email to you already, which I did not intent to do. Oops! I was tinkering around with some automation settings but then clicked a wrong button and pushed out my first email on accident. I guess that’s what happens when you try to do everything yourself. Either way, sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll be more careful in the future.

To start, I want to be clear on my intentions for this mailing list and what you can expect from me. I explicitly mentioned that I will not send you any emails if I have nothing to share. No automations, no sales, no promotions, none of that. All I want is a space to write down some thoughts where it’s easy for you to reply and weigh in.

What’s this about then?

To be honest, I’m not 100% sure what I will be sharing. Of course there will be photography related stuff, new projects, ideas, philosophies that I’d like your thoughts on. Perhaps even some work in progress that I am not ready to publicly release yet. Maybe I just need your help with something so I might ask for input. It can go many ways at this time.

This newsletter might get incredibly niche so if we know each other in real life, don’t feel obliged to stay subscribed. I totally understand if you feel like this doesn’t fit your interest.

So who is this for then? It’s a question I can barely answer as it puts me in danger of boxing everything in before I properly started. Lets just say that if you have a general interest in photography (emphasis on general) then you will probably find some value in this.

Please let me know if there’s anything you like me to talk about!

My other project this year

Next to that, I started a new 365 project recently where I will write down something everyday for the whole year of 2021. I’m calling it Monologue. The last time I’ve done a 365 project is when I started learning photography and it was the quickest learning I have ever done. I’m hoping I can give my writing skills an upgrade in the coming year as well.

I won’t bother you with those Monologues here but if you are interested, you can follow along by subscribing through email, the RSS feed, or joining the Telegram Channel. Note: these feed have been shut down last the project ended. The archive page is still live though!

That’ll be all for now. Thanks for reading and until next time!
