Happy Thanksgiving to those here in the U.S. that will be celebrating, giving thanks, eating turkey and spending time with loved ones!

We, here at SLR Lounge, are thankful for you, our readers and for our amazing team of writers, video team, and staff. So, to show our appreciation, we’ve decided to give everyone the day off on Thanksgiving Day so we can all spend some time with our family and friends. Don’t worry, we will be back bright and early Friday morning with a Black Friday edition of our Deal Dash and our regularly scheduled programming. (We couldn’t wait, so we launched our own Black Friday sale a few days early: BLACK FRIDAY SALE | 30% OFF ENTIRE SLR LOUNGE STORE!)

If you need your photography fix, here are some of our favorite tutorials and articles to keep you occupied as you let the tryptophan do its job:

Have a wonderful holiday!
