Patch! Thanks so very much for your advice. I appreciate it greatly.
I also agree with a lot of what you said. With all these photo programs anyone could accomplish whatever they want. I know only a wee bit of photoshop and believe me it is not much. So all my photos are shots I take on a whim, not always very good but learning as I go along. I took photo classes in the 70s and we were to do everything and I still manage to live by that...right or wrong for most pro photogs. Course, I am not a pro photog, although I have been paid for a few projects. Some of my photog friends says that that makes me a pro....I don't think so. Just because I happened upon a good photo now and then does not make me a pro, the way I see. I am an amateur who is desperately trying to learn how to be a pro, just for my own self.
Patch! It must have been very difficult for you to share. Thanks so much. If you don't mind, I believe in prayer and healing. I will be praying for complete healing for you. Not that you asked.
Thanks so much for your photo tips. I look forward to more!
