D-Photo Off Location - PhotoTorial-1

For this month’s regular “On Location” article in D-Photo Magazine, we instead put together an “Off Location” story, based on our behind the scenes experience in developing our new app PhotoTorial.  Read on for more… On Off Location – It’s ‘APPy Hour! Anyone in the business of photography will tell you that for every photo they take, there is an equal amount of time (often more) spent working behind the scenes.  Not only in the preparation, planning and post-production of that specific photo or photo-shoot, but… READ MORE >
