For a long while there, I was obsessed with scrapbooking. I loved adding all of the embellishments, using fancy scissors on the patterned papers, being over run with ridiculous amount of ribbon and adhesives, and having a lasting document to chronical what I valued as our most important family moments. Although I still love scrapbooking, I’ve come to a pretty epic revelation: I was so focused on the stuff around the pictures that I failed to take great pictures that I wanted to remember.

I’ve rounded up 10 of the best photography tips that I’ve found around the internet that will help you from starting to take awesome pictures all the way to how to edit them in Photoshop. These links cover some of the more basic aspects of photography; there are always more options and I have many more links on my Photography Genius Pinterest board.
