In this installment I was to strictly talk about Photography. After seeing Kristi Sutton Elias last night at the August monthly meeting I have come to realize that I can do what ever I want to do with my photography and not worry about the judges when submitting an image or the thoughts of others who just don’t get it. I will let my freak flag fly and try to use the skills I currently possess and new ones I acquire to my best advantage. Just like the ones a lot of you are obtaining this year from all the IEPPV training classes you have all been attending. So staying in that theme of doing and thinking outside the box I want to take this time to provide all of you some interesting things I have found that help me and I hope all of you!
