- I have done several photography projects since I last podcasted, including hiring another photographer for a wedding.
- In this episode I talk about shutter speed in photography. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or PM me on Ravelry and I would be happy to answer your question. **Correction: at 38:57 I say you need a fast aperture, I meant you need a fast shutter speed.**
