Over the holidays I loaded the car with the kids, clothes and toys and embarked on the 5 hour drive up north to visit my Mum. We left behind a morning of 20°C and drove north braced for temperatures over 40°C. I wasn’t ready for the tones that accompanied the …
Hello 2019. And hello to you! As we pack away the Christmas decorations and tidy up after the New Year celebrations, it’s time to jump into another year of Toy Photographers fun.
As we rush towards the end of the year, I thought I’d share some Lightroom tips and tricks that I’ve learned this year.
