Tina's Tuesday Tip

This page contains tips and tricks that I've learned over the years. This information is for both photographers and clients.  The tips aren't meant to be overly technical because I'm not that type of person.  I think that there's enough information on the Internet with a technical perspective.  Besides, if you're like me, your eyes tend to glaze over with too much technical jargon.
