www.learningdslrvideo.com I ran across a site recently while studying how to improve my stock photography and stock videos that was really helpful so I started commenting on their site to learn more. After a while they looked at my videos and they asked if I wanted to do a guest post for them. I was honored and I told them I was testing out different lighting to compare the differences and I would like to do a video on that.

Definitely check out their site if you are into photography and you are on a tight budget.
