Season 1, Episode 15 - OUR WORKFLOW WITH PHOTOGRAPHY

Or maybe the biggest question is “have you ever noticed the things you do or is it just molded into what you do and you don’t think about it?” Listen to Renee and Dawn as they talk about their workflow; maybe it may help you if you’re still trying to get into rhythm.
