“For the first time in history, the lines are being blurred between DLSR Cameras and Mobile Phones. Our handheld devices are now readily-equipped with native camera functions that enable us capture professional photos as if you were using an expensive camera setup. Your photos deserve more than a “filter” or “preset” — I want to teach you how to bring the LIFE out of your photos.”
