 Have you checked out our Hands On! Photography blog?   Each month, we post a new tutorial, discussing photography terms and techniques – we also encourage you to submit your photographs taken, using the current tutorial for the opportunity to have your submission published on our blog and to be entered into a random draw to win a great prize!

I thought I would open one up for you to see! This layout was designed by Jessyka Poulin from Sherbrooke, Quebec – look for it in our Turquoise feature in the summer issue.
