Thank you so much for featuring my article “10 photography tips to better your skills”. Much appreciated.

I tweeted this weekly favorites out for you as well.


Hi Antonea,
Thanks so much for putting together such a wonderfully useful post. I’ve just started reading your blog recently, and I just love it! Keep up the great work!

Hi Ryan,
I thought that your photography article was exceptional. Very easy to understand, and full of great advice. I think many of us designers find ourselves taking our own photos from time to time, and with no professional photography training, we can all use your advice! I really appreciate the Tweet also, thanks!
