The Elena S Blair Monthly Facebook Cover Contest Top 10 | August 2023

The community in the Elena S Blair Photography Education Facebook Group showed up again this month for the Monthly Cover Contest!

The ESB Education Group is a Photographer’s Online Community which is one of, if not the most, positive Facebook Groups for Photographers out there. What happens each month is at the beginning of a new month we call upon the Elena S Blair Photography Education Community to submit 1 photo to the Monthly Cover Contest. Members from the Facebook Group Community then like as many images as they choose and whoever has the most likes at the end of the week gets their image featured as the Facebook Group cover photo for that month. Then we take the top 10 and feature them here!


Congratulations to Susan McGauley for being the Winner of the Elena S Blair Education Facebook Group August 2023 Cover Contest.


Way to go Susan!

What is your favorite thing about The Elena S Blair Education Facebook Community?

This is such a great group to be a part of. It has a real feeling of community and the members are helpful, encouraging and inspiring.

If you could tell the version of you from five years ago one thing, what would it be?

Stop comparing yourself to others – everyone has their own unique journey.

What is your favorite lens and why?

My Tamron 35mm is on my camera 95 percent of the time. I love being up close to my clients that I photograph – it’s easier for me to prompt and pose this way.

This photographers online community has so much talent and are so incredibly positive and encouraging! Check out the rest of this months top 10!

Here is the rest of the top 10!
