I’ve talked a lot about writing this month, so this week, I thought I’d throw in some more photography stuff.

I’ve actually had these links for some time, but I have never gotten around to either sharing them or even actually trying them myself.  Still, I’ve never let a lack of personal experience with something stop me from recommending it to others, so I don’t see why I should keep me from sharing these two links.

First, there’s a tutorial on how…
