WEEK 28 – Product Photography & Stock Photos

Hi Class!

I’m so sorry for this very late blog post! I was out of town this weekend and I had no wifi where I was staying (mountains above San Diego). The only internet I had was on my phone and it was very limited. I had meant to post this on Friday, but didn’t know there would be no internet.  😦

Here’s a little review from last week’s class….
