A Few Things…
I’m pretty excited about a few things that are starting up this month…so, I thought I’d share them with you! The very first of which is an interesting challenge started by my friend Elena at The Art of Making a Baby and Sonya from {shutter}mama.

I know that there are several self-portrait challenges out there, but this challenge is really going to focus (E – correct me if I’m wrong) on living healthy and being confident in yourself. She’s even going to share some of her self-portrait secrets…and if you’ve never seen her work, CLICK HERE. It all starts up on Saturday, February 5th.


Another link-up party you may be interested in is Manual Mode by Patty at Finding  Serendipity. I actually believe this will be an extension of what Jill and I are already doing with Shoot and Edit, but it’s one more way to encourage each other to shoot in manual mode (if you aren’t already). You can post your SOOC or edited shots. I was happy to see that in Week 1, Patty re-shared the link to 31 Days to Better Photography by My3Boybarians. If you haven’t read this series…bookmark – totally worth the read!

This next one is HUGE! I’ve just learned that Flash Bus Tour ’11 will be hitting the road soon: 29 cities in six weeks, hosted by David “the Strobist” Hobby and Joe “Numnuts” McNally (two of the world’s leading educators and innovators in the world of small flash).
The tour starts in Seattle on March 11th and they will be in Raleigh/Durham on April 4th. If you are interested in attending this event with me, shoot me an email. Here’s the rest of the schedule: CLICK HERE

Finally, I wanted to remind you to enter the “Bee Mine” Giveaway.  My friend Candace Ashley will be giving away three fleurs from her newest Blue Chair (etsy shop) collection.  The giveaway will be open through next Tuesday.

So, that’s all for now. If you have a new photo challenge, event, or something you’d like me to plug…just shoot me an email. I have an unspoken (until now) policy that I will only promote that which I personally believe in, so as long as I don’t see a case of “spam-blogging,” I’ll be more than happy to share. Have a great day…and a great weekend. Hope to see you on Sunday!

PS: Have you noticed that I’ve added a few new options to my blog?
