Instead, he recommends…

These tips aren’t going to instantly improve your photography, but they’re aimed at making you a better photographer.…

Spinning Around NY | iPhone Photographer – iPhone Photography Article

You and I are on a special journey together, uncontrollably spinning our way through the universe. We have no idea where we’re going, when we’ll get there, or why we’re going at all.

Bouncing aimlessly between the two. Then, you grab me and hold tight. Until I return to solid ground.…

The Isle of Harris can be found in the far northwest of Scotland in an area known as the Outer Hebrides. It’s not an island itself, as it is connected to the Isle of Lewis, which can be found further in the north. I first fell in love…
