I'm going to take a photography class!

I'm so excited to cultivate something that is just my own!
I've not taken a class since highschool and college, and that was with my 35mm SLR, which I totally knew how to use.

This will be with my DSLR, which I've not a clue about, even though I've had it for a few years and have watched/read every online tutorial there is. And yes, I read the manual...it doesn't help.

No the class is nothing fancy. We can't afford fancy. We can't afford college courses, even at the local community college. It's our local Adult Ed. I have no idea if the teacher's any good. It's only three weeks and it's only $15! But I'm over the moon about it.

It's three hours a night for three weeks that I am out of the house, by myself (ya know except for the others in the class) trying to cultivate something I am (er...used to be and would like to be again) passionate about. I won't have on the mom hat, or the wife hat, or the volunteer hat....just the me hat, doing something for me. Yay!

If the teacher can help me figure out how to set my shutter speed and aperture so I can do cool things again and take pictures without flashes... and perhaps me how to get rid of the weird green and blue tones that my pictures keep exhibiting... it'll totally be worth my 15 bucks. And if it serves to inspire some new creativity...FABulous! Anything else is just icing on the cake!

PS: Have I mentioned lately that I love my woodstove again. I do.

Sooooo fun- I'm sure you are just going to love it! I'm starting an online photo editing class at the end of the month (it was my Christmas gift from my parents) and I can't wait!!!

This is fabulous! I already think you take great pictures, but am so glad you will get to take this class and have some free time as well as maybe learn some new things on your DSLR.
