Tricks of the frame at a time

Hi Everyone!

I'm taking the December column off to plan for 2012, so this month's assignment is quick and easy.  Let me know what you'd like to learn next year - whether it's challenges you'd like help overcoming, new techniques or tools you're interested in, or anything else that will help you grow as a photographer.  Your input will help set the direction for this column and my other classes.

Meanwhile, I hope you have a great time capturing pets, friends and loved ones using your new skills this holiday season.  Then, send your photos in as usual so we can share the bounty!  We'll resume with assignments to continue your growth as a hotshot in January.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shooting!
