Be REAL, Be Brave, Be Honest


This month we are focusing on the word: Real

Thinking about this word, I was drawn to how powerful it can be.  To me, it means honesty, bravery, truth – really diving in to topics and seeing what comes out of you.  Personally, I myself need to be a bit more real and brave with myself and step out from behind the lens and be in my own stories I am sharing, not just sharing those of my children and family.  What about you?

Searching for inspiration on Pinterest, I came across several quotes that inspired:

As you can see, the word Real can be used in many different ways.  What really jumped out at me is to really open your eyes and be brave and focused in your storytelling, photography, etc.  As you think of this word, please think about what it could mean to you – how it can stretch your own thoughts and feelings both personally and creatively.

Each month, we like to encourage you to step out of the box at times with our challenges.  Below are the list of upcoming challenges for the month that focus on Real. For more information about our challenge system please read this post in our forums.
