And, making sure you’re not stepping on any legal toes is just the tip of the iceberg.

The combination of different educational resources available to help improve your images has led to this renaissance of photography that many of us could never have predicted, according to the Vice President of Marketing at CrowdRiff, Amrita Gurney.
