In the second in my monthly photographer profile I’m featuring my friend, Karen Stanford. Karen and I met during my first go round on Facebook through a mutual friend who has since left Facebook. Karen is a founding member of an organization called Connecticut Calendar Girlz. This group produces a yearly calendar that:
showcases the beauty of women as a way to raise money and bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence.
The proceeds go to the Interval House - the state's largest domestic violence organization.

This organization is such a worthy cause. Everyone should step up and support them. Domestic violence is a scourge on society and anything we can do to bring attention to it and help people recover from it is a worthy endeavor. I applaud Karen for finding a way to help those who need it.
Not only is Karen heavily involved in that organization, she is also a photographer in her own right. We met up in Madison a few years ago to photograph at Hammonasset Beach. Several of the photos I took when we arranged to meet are in my Hammonasset Gallery.
When we returned from our photo jaunt, I showed her how I edit my photos with batching. I wrote a column here called:
Photoshop Batching about the topic.
Help her continue to bring attention to this vicious circle of violence. Support her cause. Like her page:
Calendar Girlz Facebook Page and share the content she posts. Domestic Violence is a hidden secret. Let’s help bring it out into the light and stamp it out.
In the meantime:
Focus on what’s ahead of you.
