I'm not sure how long I've been a reader of the Luminous Landscape. But over the years it has become, for me, and I'm sure for many others, an invaluable source of information about both the the art and the craft of photography. No other website has my confidence the way that "LuLa" does.
I think that my trust in the site is borne out of their consistently positive attitudes and approaches about products, photographers, and photography. No whining, no assassinations.
And, icing on the cake: The "Guide to Lightroom" and "Camera to Print and Screen" videos, amongst many others, have taught me more than I care to admit.
Good luck to Michael, Kevin and Chris. It's my hope that LuLa has ensured its continued existence with this change to a membership model.
