Dear Me : Day 99
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

I did a photoshoot today. I love doing shoots for friends because even though I put the same amount of pressure on myself-- I know that there's a lot less pressure from my subjects. They love me, they know my work, and they understand my limitations.
We've had it planned for about 2 weeks, and although Saturday was beautiful, bright, sunny, and warm... Sunday dawned cold then grew gloomier and gloomier. By the time we got ourselves collected, composed and ready to shoot... it was downright chilly, with heavy clouds and a light mist.
But, I assured them we could make it happen. Although portraiture isn't how I want, ultimately, to make my living as a photographer, it's part of a set of skills that I need to be marketable, and sometimes the weather just doesn't cooperate.
But, this is my dream-- me and a camera. So I made it work... and beautifully! Next weekend, I'm shooting baby photos. There's a bridal shoot int eh future, and possibly another set of engagement photos for someone else. I'm shooting a wedding in September, and in the meantime, i shoot these daily letters to myself, to remind me that My future is mine to create.
I desire it, I dream of it, and I believe I can do it. It will happen.
