Photo Tip Wednesday: Ask Questions

Ask Questions:

The idea of social media is to engage the followers with the content. Instead of just clicking like or plus ask about the image and its process. You can learn a lot from a few tips from the creator if the image you admire.

Photo Tip Wednesday: Take a Class

Take a Class

There is nothing like hands on. I am a pretty techie person so YouTube videos work for me but for those that need a tad more help check out your local community college. There you should find classes that are about 5 weeks long and are relatively inexpensive. I started teaching two classes in 2013 and I have learned just as much as I have helped others learn.
