Oh man, I just got the canvases I ordered for our parents' Christmas gifts... they look SO GREAT! I am thrilled! Just had to share, as it's exciting to get a large canvas like this and be really happy with the result!
On another "just sharing" note, I went to a charity auction the other night and bid on and won a gift certificate for the photography course of my choice from some well-respected local photographers. I'm going to choose their "lighting" course if I can -- on making the most of natural light and adding dimension to your portraits (all the stuff Steph has talked about and is so good at now)!
