My learning curve and Lightroom 3 …

It’s like this, you see. I love taking photos. I love editing them too, sharing them, scrapping with them, and creating coffee table books with them. [However, I’m very bad at framing my photos and hanging them on my walls!!!] Since my teenage years, I’ve nearly always had a camera somewhere close by, and I’ve […]
