Photography Class



I just did something that I've been wanting to do.

dying to do.

afraid to do.

anxious.

nervous.

oh dear, did I do the right thing?

what if I don't learn anything?

what if I get more confused?

no, no, don't talk yourself out of it!

you can do it.

It's just a four week class.

and you'll be available for the entire four weeks

unlike all of the other times that the class was offered

and you were going to be out of town one of the weeks.

this time there's no excuse.

well, it doesn't matter now because I did it.

I just signed up for a four week course

(that goes five weeks because of Thanksgiving)

a photography course.

a basic photography course.

one that probably starts off with "take off the lens cap."

I'm just kidding.

It's basic photography because it teaches the basics of how to use the manual settings on the camera.

I've been afraid of manual.

I'm afraid of the white balance, the f-stops, the terminology, everything.

I'm afraid because I don't understand.

but soon I will.

understand.

I joined Clickin Moms a while back so that I could get in on the classes they offer

but it all starts with the basics.

Basics Here I Come!

I'm excited

anxious

and nervous.

Found you through Mami. Good luck with the course. I am such a fool with a camera, I didn't even know they had manual settings.

Cool blog, I shall return.
