Learning how to take great pictures sure is a journey! I finally feel like I am understanding all the different aspects of my camera and I am really starting to feel comfortable with shooting in manual mode. A couple of weeks back I shared with you some of my favorite visual cheat sheets for shooting in manual mode. Now the second part of a great picture is effective editing. That is the part where I struggle. I’m a pro when it comes to using Adobe Illustrator but I’m still learning with Photoshop. They have quite a few things that are similar but they are basically ENTIRELY different! Most of the editing that I do right now is in iPhoto and I’m really comfortable there, which is okay for 90% of what I do at this point. One of my goals I have set for myself is to start booking photo shoots in the upcoming months and in order to give my clients the best photos I can I want to become a pro in Photoshop! I have a whole board on Pintrest for photography tips and tricks that I have collected (follow me here!) but up until recently they have been just sitting there staring me in the face. So today I’m getting things done! I did a newborn shoot for a very close friend of mine whose baby boy I adore!! I’m seriously late getting his photos edited (partly because he did get to stay with me 5 days a week for quite a few weeks while Momma went back to work for a while) and I’m learning all sorts of things along the way. Today I thought I would share with you some of the most helpful tutorials I’ve found so far!
