Photography 101

How about a real post? Sort

I'm taking a Digital Photography Class at our local university and I'm so excited!! Nervous. But excited. Last night was our first class and I literally can't wait to get started on homework assignments. I'm a little nervous about being critiqued in a group setting, but it's worth it to see my photography skills improve. I love the challenge of finding a unique way to photograph something, not just the same thing that's been done and overdone. Most of the assignments seem simple enough (except I'm not allowed to use the Auto, but there's one that's going to take some major thought and creativity. {take a picture of a "what is it?" aka as abstract or you can take a picture of something that represents Seven to you} That is going to be a challenging assignment to say the least.

Last nights lecture was on Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO...and all that technical mind boggling stuff! I took 6 pages of notes, so I'm hoping something sunk least a little bit.

This weekend I'll get to practice some of what I learned last night as I photograph my step-sister's wedding at their house. It's an outdoor wedding and I can imagine that it's going to be fabulous! I have a friend going with me as a second set of eyes and she'll be shooting as well...we both love photography and I think we're both pretty, we'll see...

I'll probably be posting my assignment pictures along the way and welcome your comments!

Can't wait to see your new knowledge displayed in new photos. Maybe I can learn something from you...although I will keep using that auto button!! Congrats to you reaching out and branching out on a new adventure!
