Encouragement Day

It is National Encouragement Day. We all need a bit of encouragement now and then. Let me remind you today that: You are unique, you bring something special to this community, your photography encourages everyone in the community, and we couldn't do this without YOU!

Take a photo of something that encourages you or that you want to use to encourage others.

My photo was taken using free-lensing. I was always afraid to try this technique and once I did, with practice, it became something I love! Free lensing involves removing the lens from your camera body, turning it around, and then holding it while you manual focus on your subject. You can get some very creative photos. I encourage you to try this sometime! It's not as scary as it looks.

So let me encourage you in this way...  if you think you aren't talented or good enough, you are wrong! You are just what we need here in the community!
