Photo Tip of the Week.

Brent: Lens limitations, use a single lens, or if a zoom, a single setting on your lens and go out and shoot.

Bob: If you have a good B&W photo, you often have the good bones for a good color photo. Set your camera view to Monochrome, and make sure you shoot in raw so you still get color. If you shoot in JPG you’re stuck in B&W.
