Re: Baby step in PS: Ta Dah!

You know what I mean. All the lessons, classes, tutorials and books are by big name pros using cameras and lenses we will never own, unlimited time in the field, travel paid for by their sponsors or students. Pp lessons are sponsored by software companies and are designed to sell software. I think t...
