    Funny thing: Recently I talked to someone about learning some more about LR. I bought LR only half a year ago when I ordered the CS6 and also my DSLR and I’m amazed and yet still on a very low beginners level.

    By the way, we have a love couple behind our house – two ducks who love to take a walk in our backyard – ain’t that sweet?

  110. 1

    Just shot thousands of pictures of my son’s High School Baseball team this spring and they made it through to the Quarterfinals in the state. I print pictures for all the boys and give them to them at their sports banquet. Too bad it didn’t end with a State Championship but it was a fun ride while it lasted. Go Indians!!! I use lightroom more and more since it’s easier to sort through hundreds of pictures of every game. I like to be able to tweak them in lightroom and export certain one for uploading and printing. Lightroom rocks!
