Tutorial Tuesday: The Golden Hour

August 07, 2012
Before we get to Tutorial Tuesday, notice anything different? On Sunday, I claimed that my new website was up and running. I lied – we had a few glitches that had to be worked out. However, we think those kinks have been resolved and www.ashleysisk.com on WordPress is LIVE! Take a look around and let me know what you think, although I give you this warning…there will be some formatting issues.

July 17, 2012
Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday! Sarah of Naptime Momtog and I will be bringing you a new challenge every week, to stretch your shooting and editing skills. This week, I am not quite as prepared as I’d like to be. Felicity has hit her two-week growth spurt and is cluster feeding…which means eating every hour…and I’m the 24/7 food bank. Not only is it a bit exhausting, it’s hard to get anything else done.
