New Site: Photo Tips for Moms

The Photographic Life: Photo Tips for Moms was launched recently by Mary Phillips, a busy Texas mother and professional photographer. She developed the site to help moms (and dads!) to take better photos of their matter what type of camera equipment they have!

On the site, she discusses everything from using your iPhone's camera to the most expensive professional equipment, along with tipsheets, editing tips, software reviews, contests and much more.

The site is broken down into four main sections:

Gear: Camera 101, reviews of equipment & suggestions on using what you already have

"The Shoot": Tips on taking the best photos, pointers on the best use of light, how to take pictures of kids at different ages

"After The Shot": What to do with your pictures once you've taken them, including framing, storage and printing advice. Resources for photo books, etc.

Editing: How to edit your pictures to make them look the best possible, software reviews, instructional videos, where to find free software

Plus lots of contests, conversations in the forums and more...

A trial subscription to The Photographic Life is just $1, and after that it's just a very affordable $6 per month.
