Getting the most from Photography practice

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Third From the Top.” “Make sure I use these parcels of enlightenment to gain as much knowledge to make my blog photographs….as good as they can be.” (This is the third sentence (slightly paraphrased) from Mark Bialczak’s blog, at http://markbialczak.com/2015/03/25/photo-101-keeping-my-edge-aligned/  which I highly recommend.)
