Stunning "Then & Now" image by the fabulous Salina Pennington Photography- Newborn and Baby Portraiture. It is so cool to see the transformation from the composition to the processing. Thank you for sharing! Thank you to all who contributed and congratulations to this week's top photo contest picks.

We all start somewhere which inspired this theme and honestly it is so cool to see the progression from everybody. I started my own photography journey over twenty years ago now (with film) and put together a blog post awhile back from when I had first switched to digital (which was a huge learning curve for me.) You can see more of that post here. 

There are so many amazing photographers and artists in this group. The variety and styles of all the artists share are inspiring every week.Be sure to check out the current theme below. If you don't follow these photographers yet, be sure to check out their links and give them a follow.
