Hello and welcome to the October edition of FSM. October is here already and life around us is expressing itself in many different ways.  The colors and expressions of creativity by artists behind the camera and in front of the camera. FSM features this month photographic expressions from our contributing photographers that are poised and not so poised.
This month our featured creative is photographer James Washington of Maseo Photo based in Chicago, Illinois USA. His portraiture style is unique and inspiring using light, shadows, and various location settings for his expressive portraits. Out Spotlight section is an interview by Rae-Shell D. Fletcher of nationally known artist DJ Supastar. DJ discusses her road to success as a famous DJ and internet "Supastar". Our Beyond The Lens (BTL) is a fun photo outing featuring spooktacular ghosts, goblins, and ghouls. Keeping with the theme of October where people dress up as someone else, contributors Whitney Ray and Kika ATX write about Steam Punk and Cosplay.
