As another year is about to be wrapped up I have been spending some time thinking back and reflecting on 2011. What a crazy year for me in many ways, it flew by in a flash and I am amazed and humbled at how fast this site has been growing. As what started as a way for me to be able to share some tips to people who attended my workshops(honestly as a way to save myself from emailing people the same answers to some basic photography questions) has grown into something that I have been dedicating many hours a week into growing. It’s been an exciting year with many fun twists and turns along the way and I am more excited than ever for whats to come in 2012. I really am amazed at how many people visit our site daily and from all over the world, this year we have had over 300,000 people to the site and it makes me so happy to be able to share some of my knowledge of photography and post production to help us all grow as artists and become better photographers. There are some great things I am planning for next year and really look forward to connecting with everyone more!
