As a blogger, I take pride in my photography skill. I have had praises and commendation for my creative eye and staging artistry. My skills have opened up opportunities for me that I can only imagine. Some of you are well aware that I have had my fair share of covering events such as product launches and even runways show or backstage during NYFW … which obviously is a BIG thing! A lot of people have asked how did I take my photography to the next level, and my answer is simple –never stop learning.
Technology is ever changing. There’s always something new. When it comes to photography, there’s a whole WORLD out there to explore. For example, if I mention Aperture, ISO, and F-Stop –these words would make sense to professionals, and a complete jargon to amateurs and aspiring photographers. The key to a great photo is knowing how to use your gear and how to set-up the settings correctly. This is where the all NEW Best Buy Photography Workshop Tours can help!
