On the Road to Better Photography
On January 15, I will begin a 4-week, twice-weekly online class in Lightroom. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's an Adobe application for storing and sharing photographs, like iPhoto, but with some pretty sophisticated organization, editing, and creative tools.
The class is being taught by my Beyond Layers PS texture instructor, Kim Klassen, and the fee is $75. Here is why Kim likes using Lightroom, along with her course outline for the Lightroom class that I'll be taking (called Round Trip).

If you love what Photoshop & Photoshop Elements can do, you might want to take this class.
I'm always on the lookout for freebies because I'm a big believer in sharing creative tools. Pretty much anything you want to learn can be found online for free, and I like sharing that information.
Here are some of the free resources that I have used in the past and/or am currently using...
Free Photoshop tutorials by Kim Klassen
The 10-minute texture tutorial is a lot of fun! This is where I started a year ago with PS textures.
Our Top Photography Articles of 2012 from Digital Photo Buzz
This is a blog that I subscribe to written by a NoCal wedding & portrait photographer, Mark Stagi. Since I am now plugged into Lightroom and I love tilt shift photography, the first 5 articles caught my eye.
Take a look at that last article, Pricing Your Photography, written by someone who actually makes a living as a photographer. This talks about the business side of photography and how the numbers have to add up.
