We even have a chat area where you can meet and greet other photographers just like you.

What are our members talking about? Everything from “top 10 photo composition rules” and “backlighting tips” to “posing guides for families” and “editing out snot”! See? We

Congratulations on the launch of RockTheShot!

It appears every chance to enter is tied to FB, the one social circle I DON’T belong to. But maybe I haven’t had enough coffee yet this a.m. and am missing something.
