Their day was filled with both laughter and tears of joy as the two art students became husband and wife. They first met at Radford University in 2009 during their drawing class, and almost 6 years later, one of their professors from art school […]

    Allie Strouse - Love these tips!! I didn’t know about the auto advance! I normally just use the filter menu at the bottom right and when I am culling, I have the filter set on unrated. That way once I rate the pictures, it automatically leaves the screen and the next one pops up, if that makes sense. This also helps me know where I am in the culling process a little quicker in case LR gets shut down or I get up and walk away!

    Excellent blog!
