My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Photography Class

Last night was our first photography class. We are taking the class at a local Camera Shop. This is our camera
I say our camera because although he bought it for me last Christmas, He takes almost as many good & bad pictures as I do.
I know I have taken many photos and by chance alone have had a few (what I consider Great shots) but With this class we will learn how to take even better ones, by learning what makes a good picture, things to consider when taking pictures. Next week we will actually learn what the different icons do on the camera and what digital zoom is & what file size makes the best pictures. It is a two hour class packed full of great easy to understand material. I hope to take even better photos than I do now. And who said "You can't teach an old dog new tricks?"
It was fun to learn these things with my husband. Hopefully between the two of us we will retain what we need to do. Today I will finish decorating the front porch and have some photos to show you tomorrow.

I should be joining you in that class. I'm always at a loss with my photos. I take 50, use maybe if I'm lucky, 2. Seriously, why do I waste my time except that now I have a mission....

Good for you! I want to take a photography class too. I like the idea of doing it through a camera store--sounds less intimidating :)

What a great thing! I wish I could join you but alas....it is 30 minutes to the nearest Walmart and no classes for sure...another reason I need to move North....there is nothing here for me now that I have the time. Enjoy and maybe you can teach us something!
