Back in December, around the time that I decided that "camera" would be my One Little Word, there was a deal on Living Social for a 6 hour photography class at Brooklyn Creative. Well, today was the day of that class, and it was absolutely perfect. It was chock full of information, right at the level that I needed.
In preparing for the class, I was looking into renting a DSLR for the day. Long story short, while looking to rent one, I bought one. It was kind of a crazy, spur of the moment decision for a large purchase, but after it was done, I was so happy I cried. Weird, I know. What can I say? Scrapbooking and photography are important to me. I am grateful to be moving to this next level of photgraphy.
So here's some of what I managed to do today:
Me and my Cammy. I like the noises she makes. Click. Snap.
I finally got Depth of Focus
My usual MO. But now in Manual Mode
And when I came home, I was able to do this:
When all was said and done, I had taken about 350 pictures. After reviewing them all, I think I have less than a hundred now. But every "mistake" was totally worth it, because I understand more today than I did yesterday.
I am totally ready for Take Twelve. What about you?
