Merry Christmas 2011 Brides!

  • A Day at the Spa

several classes with Justin and Mary and two years at WPPI… I’ve come away learning one really important thing. You need to WOW your clients.

Well, it’s a little lens that attaches on to the end of any lens and does absolutely nothing. It makes the lens LOOK bigger but doesn’t have any purpose.  I got suckered into buying so much CRAP when I first ventured into the world of Digital SLR cameras.
