Excellent Photography Tutorials
These tutorials are quick and to the point. I am getting a lot of good ideas for my own photography. I have also found their website very useful as I use Lightroom to edit my images. Thanks for another great podcast!
This podcast is basically trying to do the same thing as Scott Wittenburg in Photography 101. And Scott did it better. Now, I gave this podcast 3 stars because it's not a bad podcast, it's informative and the narrative isn't bad, but the point is it's already been done.
I loved these videos. They are helpful and straight to the point. I highly recommend them.
