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.

    I love this!!! I bought a professional camera a long time thinking that it was going to be eassssy. Was I wrong! It’s been collecting dust! I wanna pull that bad boy out and start messing with it. I know I would love photography and using some of your tips I know I can eventually get it down. Thanks so much for sharing this awesome info!!
