    Gina and Valerie – thanks for the podcast. I had two comments regarding this episode. First, another greate free learning resource for Lightroom is the series of videos by Anthony Morganti. They are a little longer (15-20 minutes) but are all free on YouTube. Second, although you dismiss out of hand taking internships, workshops, etc., in genres you do not like, there can be learning opportunities there as well. You learned you could never be a food photographer, for example.
