You settle with saying that they probably have a professional camera and that’s how they are doing it. But I am telling you something….some of my images on social media ARE TAKEN WITH MY IPHONE! SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! Yes, I am here to share my editing process with you because I want to see your photos speak! I want your feed to be a creative and inspiring place for others!
