Floral Arranging 101: Tips for Caring for Your Clippers

floralarrangingclippers
My favorite clippers to use for flower arranging are these Japanese bonsai clippers. They are so sturdy and will cut anything from a flimsy tulip stem to a woody maple branch, all the while keeping your hands very comfortable. To keep them in shape, I clean them with some soapy water and sometimes just a drop of bleach. I always dry them really well. To keep them from rusting, I use this lovely camellia oil that comes with a special brush. I buy it from my favorite shop, Alder and Co. in Portland. Lucky for you, they have an online shop! I recommend keeping it with your clippers to keep them in tip top shape!

Lightroom Map Module

Lightroom Map Module

I take hundreds of photos a week on my smart phone and these photos all have GPS data attached to them. More and more cameras are equipped with GPS devices that track where each photo is taken and this can be useful both professional and amateur photographers alike. One module that is often overlooked in Lightroom is the Map Module.
