We’re super excited to introduce a fun new activity in Made to Make - monthly photo challenges! All members are encouraged to participate, and here’s how it works:

WHY?
  • To encourage experimentation & growth in your photography
  • To get you shooting every month with a fun prompt

HOW?
  • Each month I’ll share a theme that incorporates an element you can use, like lighting, props, or poses
  • Take a photo that fits the theme and submit it in the group!

THEN WHAT?
  • At the end of each month, Marina will share a video going through everyone’s photos, and the winner(s) of each challenge will be posted on Marina’s IG story!
  • PRO members will receive constructive feedback
