In Your Style Returns this Friday

Developing a personal style is not copying someone else’s style. Developing a personal style is finding who you are and making your work be the extension of your personality. Join us this Friday (02/12/16) at 7:30 pm at the CPS Clubhouse. Do not be reluctant to try it… to explore your own style, whether just developing or emerging as you gain more experience and confidence in your personal photographic style. SHARE IT WITH OTHERS - THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION. BRING UP TO SIX IMAGES IN YOUR STYLE – Matted or on a flash drive.
