  7. I have a Nikon d3000 and don't really know how to use that well. I'd love to take a class, but it's hard to find the time to do it. I'm jealous you're going to Cincinnati! My husband is a huge Reds fan, so when we lived in KY we went. These are wonderful! I love sending cards. The smarty pants card cracks me up.

  11. I've only ever purchased the Blog Life class from ABM and their Lightroom presets. I was really happy with both so I can imagine their photography class is great too. A great free resource for photography is the blog Click It Up A Notch. I learned how to shoot in manual from her posts. Have a great weekend!
