So that is why #16 on the Life List is 'Learn how to take great photos'.
It is also on the list because I am always inspired by blogs that use great photos to tell a story. sfgirlbybay, decor8blog and piajanebijkerk are ones that always use stunning photos.
When I attended the recent Nuffnang Blogopolis I took the class 'Blog Photography 101' which was taught by the lovely Rachel Devine. She gave us some great pointers and her book Beyond Snapshots is really worth a purchase.
I have been trying out some new tweaks and filters to some photos using Pixlr-o-matic and Picmonkey, which are fantastic tools to add effects to your photos. I am also working my way through 'Beyond Snapshots' and hope I can put their advise in practice.
I am still learning, however hopefully my photos will start improving...
