3 Must Visit Resources For The Photographer In You
Everyone is a photographer these days.† But some just end up with much better photos than others.† Most of the time, there’s a bunch of good reasons for that.
I had a chance to connect with Matt Johnson, who seems to have a permanent attachment to his body — his personal DSLR.†† And his photos look just smashing.
I asked him to share with me some of the places where he spends his time learning new photography skills, tactics and tips.† Here’s a guest post sharing some of his wisdom with us.

Shooting in pre-sets should never be an option.
As a photographer your job is to, as Bono says, Dare to fail!
The best way to do this is to look, look, look.
