the big picture planner: helping you succeed in 2014

Photographers from all over the world are raving about The Big Picture Planner: "The Big Picture Planner is one of the most powerful comprehensive documents to use for my business, from being able to keep daily to do lists to tracking and managing my financial goals. I love that it was  "plug and play." I made no customizations and printed everything as-is and immediately started using it in my business. The financial investment and time investment is minimum when compared to what I know the payback will be. The Big Picture Planner helps me take my big goals/ideas and break them into easily attainable tasks, which as a "creative" can be difficult. Committing myself to using the Big Picture Planner as a daily part of my business will most definitely give me an edge in 2014. It's like having my own business/marketing team. Thank you Design Aglow for once again creating a business tool, designed for the financial success of the photographer." - Courtney Ortiz Photography

Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
