A few weeks ago I entered a photo into a creativity contest at my favorite photography forum, Learn Shoot Inspire.  I’ve been a part of this forum since close to when it first started, about a year ago.  It’s an amazing place to talk photography and learn from other photographers.  I’ve made some great friendships there, and I’m excited about the future of the forum!

So a few weeks ago on the “Pro” side of the forum, they ran their very first creativity contest.  The topic for the challenge was Open Eyes.  I really put a ton of thought into it and tried to come up with something original and “different” for me.  The photo below was my entry – my little men being silly in the bathtub!  To determine the winner, all of the Pros at the forum voted.  And…. I won in the the Best Overall category!!!!  I think it’s made even more special for me because my peers voted for me.  I’m so excited about it!  You can see the photo of my little guys and the write-up over on the Learn Shoot Inspire blog, here.  So, so exciting!  🙂

And for those who are looking for a place to learn more about photography, please consider joining the wonderful group of ladies (and a couple of men!) over at Learn Shoot Inspire.  I really feel it’s the kindest, most knowledgeable group of photographers!  You won’t regret it.  And check their FB page for specials!

Here’s the photo! I think I may have to hang this in my boy’s bathroom!  🙂
