Show Results

New Camera

So a few days ago I bought a new DSLR camera. I have a few personal clients for whom I do website development. Many of these clients are Morgan Horse sites and they’re always saying to me “we need new pictures for the site”. I finally thought to myself, maybe I should pick up a…
