    hi wendy,
    first of all, thank you again for your site. so, so, so helpful and inspiring.
    sorry to bother you with this but i’m at my wits end. i have been studying your posts and working on my editing skills and i’m just not getting the results i want. i thought it was that i was using camera raw instead of lightroom, so i invested in the next step. after combing your site, i’m seeing that i might have to invest in VSCO or PORTRA because i am using an SLR (Nikon D5100). aside from also maybe investing in a 80-200mm lens, is plug-in software my next step? and which one? i’m keeping my prices low as i gain knowledge so i can’t afford both…i also can’t switch to film at this point.
    thank you so much for ‘listening’. i truly appreciate it!
