i have wanted to take a photography class since i got my pretty SLR camera over four years ago. i have been able to fake good pictures and think i have decent composition but couldn't utilize the true photographic skill of shooting only in manual, aperture or shutter mode. i really wanted to be able to use these functions rather than rely on the pretty icons on the mode dial for night, landscape and action shots. so finally after checking with my friend yelp.com i found a school that had a 6 week course for those such as me who wanted to embrace their inner amateur, but wanting to be professional, photographer.
my first class was last saturday. i LOVED it. soaked up all of the information like a sponge and was probably one of the more engaged of the 9 students in the class. had so much fun that now i kick myself that i didn't do this earlier. what was i waiting for? it makes me happy and wasn't going to break the bank.
can't wait for session two where we learn about aperture. gotta go do my homework to prepare. i have homework and i love it!
