Take Better Photos Today, with Karen Walrond: The Home Hour, Episode 64

I've always wanted to learn to take better photos, but for years I've been stumped by settings and terms I didn't understand. ISO, shutter speed...it was just easier to stay in automatic mode and hope for the best (and usually, the results weren't even close to "the best.") I've read tons of photography tutorials, but they just left me more confused. If you're a similarly confused beginning photographer or even if you've got some experience but want to build on your skills, you're going to love this episode featuring Karen Walrond of Chookooloonks.

In episode 15, Meagan and Sarah get into the details of chores, home management, delegating, and helping kids take on age-appropriate responsibilities. [listen to the episode]
