It’s Christmas time and everyone is looking forward to a day off of work and what they will get under the Christmas tree.One hears Christmas music playing every where & you will hear a “Merry Christmas” from someone as you pass them in the halls, stores, & parking lots.
One gift that maybe under that Christmas tree will be camera. You open the box and now your are ready to go take on the world of photography. Well a lot of phones & cameras are fully automatic with nothing to do but take great pictures. Don’t be disappointed if that picture you thought was the best in the world, doesn’t make the front cover of Time Magazine. It takes time and a lot of work to be a photographer.
