well, i'm taking the leap!
i want to learn all i can regarding photography. i mean, i got my first DSLR so why not take advantage of what she has to offer, right? right.
so, i want to take a class. it doesn't have to be in school, as in at a college at night where it will take me away from my sweet family. i can easily do this while gunnar is running around playing ben 10, or army men. i can do this in my free time. yes, i have free time -- i mean, hello, how am i blogging? we MAKE time when we WANT to do something!
we all know i love amy from the idea room, it's no secret on my blog! i talk about the idea room all the time....well, it's also no secret that amy is one wonderful photographer and we love her because she shares her secrets [gasp!] yes...yes she does!
well, as i was on my other love pinterest, i was looking up photography and came across a little link that spiked my interest. it said "say no to auto" it peeked my interest because i really want to learn about manual mode and all about my camera....so, i click on it and, where does it take me? to amy's blog! of course! lol, but, more importantly to the most amazing page that i have no idea how i've never seen it before! it's the page where i decided i'm totally taking a class! and, now i have a new favorite blogger...meet kristen! oh she is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! she used to write on amy's blog [i proly would have cried had i known this....cuz when i read her farewell post i found myself getting a little emotional...i blame it on my period getting ready to start] and tells all her little secret's...i have now found a new best friend, and she has no clue who i am! lol if you have a love for photography, this is a must read ... and yes, i'm going to purchase her e-book because well, after reading the tips she gave i mean, i have to! you proly should too...click here to access site and get it!
so friends, i am now looking for an online class to take. perhaps i will get her book first and just start there. i am also totally going to invest in photoshop. yes, i do have picnik and i have been able to make some amazing shots look unbelievable. but, after looking at kristen's pictures after photoshop...i'm really blown away!
so, i'm totally excited because i have tried a few of her tips and have done really well with changing the iso and ss and i'm excited because wow. just wow! what a difference! no more auto for me! now, tonight i'm taking pics at the kids "back to school" dance...i cringe thinking about the flash that will be used. urg! i may be e-mailing kristen today! crossing fingers she can help me!
how about you? do you know what i can do?? i HATE flash photography...but...i'll be indoors at a dance = DARK...help!!
