Winter has definitely arrived for those of us who live in the northern hemisphere. For many, this is an excellent time to spend more time editing their photos. Others enjoy taking on the challenge of taking their cameras out into the winter wonderland to capture the snowy scene into a fantastic photograph. I love getting outside and taking photos of a magical scene just has just been draped in a blanket of snow. And there are no mosquitoes here in Ontario!
Did you receive a new camera for Christmas? If so, you're likely excited about taking some great photos. In reality, these images will only be as good as the photography skills of the person who presses the shutter release. The new year presents opportunities for self-improvement and self-reflection. Photographers, like all artists, should consider their goals for the year ahead. Perhaps you want to consider relying less on auto modes. For enthusiasts, building your skills in off-camera lighting would be a valuable endeavour. If you're a seasoned professional, maybe it's time to further develop your business.
With Luminar 4, your photos are the center of attention. You can conveniently browse, rate, group your photos and much more. Automatically group your photos by year, month, and even day. Easily navigate between images and make sure that the perfect image you’re looking for is always at hand.

My photos and videos lose so much resolution and quality when I shared them on the social network so that this content could load faster on web and mobile devices. I continued to post, as many others have, on the world's most popular microblogging site, Twitter, mainly to connect with and to learn from my followers.
