Just click on the links after any of the shortened tips above, and you will be redirected to my Facebook Page where you can read the full text.

If you’d like to read more, I invite you to LIKE my FB page at https://www.facebook.com/andrewdarlowÂ (there you’ll find 3000+ links to articles, gallery exhibitions, more photography tips, Lightroom/Photoshop videos and tutorials, etc.). Or you can just click on the LIKE button to the right to like the page if you are logged into Facebook. And you can find my full Twitter feed at https://www.twitter.com/andrewdarlow.
I think Snapbird.orgÂ is an invaluable resource for anyone looking for anything that has been “Tweeted,” especially if you have specific Twitter users/feeds that you’d like to search.
