Very Practical Tips

I enjoyed this episode very much. Although I am not a professional photographer, I do have other business projects that I have to take pictures for(due to limited start up costs and the pandemic). The reinforcement to play with the settings and move until I get a good angle are tips that I will definitely be using for the shots that I take for my boutique.
