Shoot It! A Product Photography Primer

Lately, I’m been checking out this site, making plans, and trying to decide what to do first. I’m abit giddy over it. This site offers classes and workshops on everything from sewing to cakes for a decent price in a lovely format.

I should go back to the very beginning and reread the blog creation steps (which I have).  I should take a workshop, a blogging workshop.  I wonder if there is such a thing.
