On-Line Photography Classes

Heaven knows I can use all the help I can get.  My good friend Marlene at I Teach People (from whom I bought my camera second hand) is offering online lessons!  I signed up immediately.  They are free - so anyone can sign up for a few pointers.

In my first class, the assignment was to take 100 photographs with the specific settings she dictated.  The real challenge was to practice composition.  I won't bore you with a bunch of really bad pictures.  But I will bore you with these three!

As I drove in to town today, I was wishing I had my camera.  Spring is coming and I just love it.  The water is running, the birds are chirping and today, the wind was blowing really hard.   I love weather.

  4. I love your sandwich photo. You know a food photo is good, when it gives you cravings.

    I presume the course if only for people with SLR cameras. If not, then I might look into it. I love snapping photos but have a lot to learn and one day I"m going to get a SLR camera to play around with.

    I just wanted to mention that I'm also having a giveaway over on my blog, in case you're interested.

    Cheers.
