It was one hot month! Have you been checking theLoop while inside in your A/C? Cool off and have some of your potential photography concerns alleviated with the top posts culled from theLoop over the month of July.
It may seem off topic, but this post about favorite dishes to share proved pretty popular (yeah, yeah, it WAS tied to a Giveaway). If you're planning a late-summer pool or dinner party, check out what your peers are cooking up!

Is "wiping" your memory card periodically necessary to avoid corruption? One Looper wants to know and around 30 of you have an opinion! 

A Looper wants some advice on how to remove intrusive background detail on an intimate family moment. Several tips here on how to edit images if you're not necessarily the most experienced Photoshopper!

What books or study guides should one use if preparing to take the CPP exam? Tons of good, supportive ideas here from Loopers who want to help elevate their peers and profession. 

This Looper has been experiencing major issues while processing files in Lightroom and Photoshop since upgrading to Windows 10. Fellow Loopers are ON IT, offering lots of ideas for solutions. Check in to see if the problem gets solved.

A Looper working as a second-shooter for someone posted her own pics (similar in style but from a different shoot) and may have offended the photographer she was working with. Several fantastic and heartwarming responses on here about owning one's mistakes, making amends, and learning/teaching based on our similar experiences.
It's the age-old question: Who do you use to print your business cards?

One Looper asks, "Does anyone have a good filter they can recommend to help reduce the window glow that can be produced from some angles when shooting inside a home?"

Now that PPA has officially launched the Print Movement, Loopers are already comparing stories and offering advice on how to incorporate the selling of prints into one's business. Be on the lookout for resources and help from PPA in the coming months! (October is Print Movement month, btw!)

Remember to check out theLoop, a safe and protected online community where PPA members can discuss a range of photography topics. Not a PPA member? Join here!
