Photography Tutorials on SLR Lounge

A couple years into our photography careers, as we were developing our styles and techniques, we decided to create a photography tutorials site called SLR Lounge. It started as a way to share our new findings, teach a few things, and give back to the community. It’s grown into a full online magazine and news site. On SLR Lounge, we teach about post-production, shooting techniques and marketing tools for photographers. We also discuss industry news and equipment releases. We’d love it if you check it out!
