Big Picture Giveaway

 Big Picture Class  G I V E A W A Y
Did you know that 99% of professional photographers post-process their photos? Post-processing has dramatically changed over the years. Back in the non-digital age, post-processing meant taking a photo into the darkroom and adjusting exposure, color, contrast and more to get the best photo possible. In the digital world, post-processing means uploading your photos to a computer, opening them in a post-processing program and adjusting little sliders to get AMAZING results! Little changes can have the biggest impact!

One lucky commenter will recieve a seat to Elisha Snow's Post Processing Workshop.

  46. Well, the subject(s) that I shoot the most often are my children, but I have a weakness for photographing flowers (I also particularly enjoy playing with different postprocessing techniques on still life - you can really push the boudairies in ways that just don't work on landscapes or portraits :) )
