Pose.

Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph

Once you have bought all of your makeup now is the time to put your talents on display. Book a photoshoot for yourself or significant other.

Documenting your progress of your passion while you are exploring and creating. Is one of the best motivations to keep creating.

Once you’ve painted the picture; created your stills. It is the time to finally pay it forward. Start that Youtube channel you’ve been wanting to do.

Even start with a blog. No matter the medium in which you like to create.

Just be you and create.

Love Always,

Dottie.
