Yeah, avocados have a bad rep for having a lot of calories, but, I though I’d shed some light on why those calories are well worth it.

Avocados help with: Oral cancer defense, breast cancer prevention, eye health, lowers cholesterol, heart health, stroke prevention, a source of glutathione, and are a Vitamin E powerhouse. They make a great hair mask, also make a hydrating face mask, and they are a great way to add healthy fat almost any recipe.

…and most of all.. they make guacamole.

So, say it loud and proud with me…AVOCADOS ARE AWESOME!

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
As with taking photos on land, if you are shooting with natural light and want your subject lit well and not as a silhouette, make sure the sun is behind you! But, if the sun is not at a lower angle closer to the horizon, ask your model to look up to the surface to have the sun light up their face!
