I have never been paid to take anyone's photo. So, I suppose that means that I am an amateur. But, I LOVE WRITE LIGHTING! PHOTO= LIGHT and GRAPH = Writing
That is what you are doing...writing with LIGHT! Cool, huh?
Well, for those of you who are better than me, I want you to join this contest. It is just a really cool one to join. I don't get paid to ask or invite you to do this. But, I want someone I know of to WIN IT! So, go WIN! Or, Maybe I will win! Then someone YOU know won it!
