In the previous post of this series, I discussed an important way of thinking about how to approach your summer travel photography.

The Doha, Lightroom workshops series began with Develop Like a Pro. And, over the next three days, we covered everything from developing, asset management, backup strategies and bookmaking. Working at the Fire Station has been one of my most satisfying teaching experiences.
