I finally did it: I signed up for (and am currently taking) a photography class.
I asked for it for Christmas…and so far, so good. It’s just a 4 week class teaching me some pretty basic stuff (shutter speed, shooting in manual mode, portraits, etc). I wanted to learn more about my fancy camera and become more comfortable shooting in manual, instead of auto or semi-auto.
I’m NOT going to be a pro, and I will probably never take the sort of pictures I wished I did…but I’m glad to be learning and discovering more.
And, it’s another thing crossed off the 30 Before 30 list. 🙂 So win-win.
The first week we covered motion, shutter speed, and low lighting. Tonight we are talking flash: fill flash, stopping motion from flash. And I know next week is portraits. Here are my homework assignments from the first week:
And this was fast shutter speed showing motion – Tyler skipping a rock at the lake.
It’s fun to learn!
