June 19, 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 once again waited until the very last minute (eh, 3 hours ago) to think about writing a tutorial. Luckily, I did have an idea…so it was only a matter of editing and writing. If you want to follow along, I encourage you to open THIS TUTORIAL in a new tab.
