Eliminate What's Holding You Back

We hope you enjoyed these beautiful and whimsical photographs of umbrellas. Also just remember, if you get out in the rain, make sure your camera is dry, but never stop taking pictures. A new environment can push you creatively, especially if you have a bit of a challenging situation, like contending with rain!

And don't let your photography remain stagnant. Identifying your #1 Photography Killer and fixing it will empower you to create photographs that you’ve always wanted.
