A couple summers ago, I took a beginner’s photography class to learn what all those little symbols were on my digital camera.
At the very first class the instructor told us to buy a book called, “The Digital Photography Book” by Scott Kelby!
(This is now available in a 5 part boxed set)
He knew that we were going to probably forget half of what half of what he said, and needed a go-to guide once we left his class.
Mr. Scott Kelby is the president of KelbyOne and Editor-in-Chief of Photoshop User magazine.
He also serves as training director for the Adobe Photoshop Seminar Tour and is the technical chair of the largest Photoshop gathering in the industry, Photoshop World. (Just giving him some props as to why my instructor chose this book). 🙂
I really enjoyed taking this class in person, but many of us need some flexibility when it comes to learning something new. If this is you, it’s time to go online and highly suggest you try Bluprint.
The best part of an online series is that you can stop and start whenever you want to, ask questions, and share your work.

So, now that you have learned how to take some super pics, what the heck do you do with them?
We’ll if you wanted to edit them a bit and add some flare, you can load them to PicMonkey or Canva.
Both places have plenty of templates and editing tools.
Well…by cracky, what can’t you do with those photos today?
You can transfer them to canvas prints, mugs, t-shirts, and even blankets for goodness sakes.
Also, when the holidays role around it’s worth signing up for their email list, to get in on the deals.
Honestly, I can’t think of a better gift, then pics of your family, friends, or co-worker memories.
So, here’s to taking happy snap shots!
