There are moments when the stars are in alignment, the winds are blowing in the right direction and my brain fires on all synapses. Or whatever it churns on. Coffee. Chocolate. Salsa.
Finally, Thursday afternoon something clicked in my brain and I began to understand what certain photography terms mean. I received this for Christmas, but had not been making much sense of it. To me, it was like reading Charlie Brown's teacher's syllabus. WHA-A-wa-wah. After two classes at a local camera store and much page turning of this, I was ready to try once again to experiment with my camera's manual modes.
Alert the media, because I took several pictures in Av mode AND full manual mode. And the pictures turned out pretty good, I mean for being my first attempts and all that.
So, why am I telling you all of this? Well, friends I am challenging myself to practice these barely acquired skills by taking and posting more pictures. Just not here. Take a peek over on my sidebar and you will see a new link. That's right, it's my photo blog, in all of it's two or three posts glory. Pop over and check it out if you feel like it. No pressure.
