Great episode! I love Instagram, but it is hard to fit everything in.

I am a little embarrassed that until today, I never used Lightroom. But after listening to the podcast on my run this morning, I decided to jump right in. And I’m already loving the difference I’m seeing in my photos with only a few little tweaks.


Lightroom is a GAME CHANGER! Glad you’re on the LR train. You’re going to love it.

I just finished hearing the episode! Learning to edit your photos will surely make a difference. Lately, I haven’t been that consistent with my photography, so I’m working on it. But I have noticed that I’m inclined with deep or rich color images and some closeup ones. So it’s time to practice more.
