Editing and Post
In this section you'll find posts about editing and what to do with your pictures after taking them. You will find links to posts on how to quickly edit your photographs using Lightroom, as well as why I recommend this software so much. For portfolio building I recommend Smugmug and you'll find the reasons why in a post below. For those wanting to take their hobby to the next level I've also shared some secrets to making money from your pictures.
Instagram is one of the best photography networks out there. Using Instagram allows you to share your work, as well as learn and be inspired by the work of others. It's also a great way to make new friends, and I often meet up with other Instagrammers on my travels or in my home city.
