One of the things that really irritates me is the number of out of focus and downright terrible photos people post to Facebook. I know that photography is all about creating memories but really, do you want to show just how bad your photos are? So why are so many bad images posted to Facebook?

How do I switch on the auto pilot? With the 365 Photo Challenge–a photo a day for a whole year.
This is a question that all of those who love photography ask at some time or other. Even those of us who are professional photographers sometimes need to sit down and evaluate where we are with our photography businesses. So how can you make more money from your photo business or hobby?
