Yay for photography classes! If you need an extra boost, there is a really, really good book out there that covers apeture, shutter speed, etc. in really good layman's terms - it's called Understanding Exposure by Brayn Peterson.


Wow, sounds like fun. Before I went digital, I used my love, a Pentax ME Super for all of my photography. Now I use an automatic Olympus most of the time. My dear husband gave me a Professional Olympus for Christmas, but I still haven't gotten completely comfortable with all of its choices! I tend to fall back on the "little silver" as you call it.

I think it's great that you're taking a photography class - I've always found your images so inspiring. I can only imagine how much more amazing the future photos will be!


Not bored. There is comfort in reading that the people I admire are as preoccupied and prone to muddling through as me. I appreciate your art and success more, when I can see the process, the journey. I am a few steps behind you, feeling certain there is a photography class in my future, so I am going to enjoy hearing the good, the bad, and the technical!

Loved this inspiring to me because I would also love to take a class. Getting into the world of blogging without photography skills has felt so funny to me. Keep sharing your assignments please, it is very interesting! :0)Kristin

Photography classes are so much fun. I think you are going to enjoy yourself.

Well, those photos sure look amazing! I'm just getting into the whole photography thing and I know ZIP! Point and shoot. As usual, you inspire.


I'm so sorry that deadlines and technological difficulties have been stressing you out. Those are two of my least favorite things, but my thesis writing experience is still fresh in my mind, and it entailed both of those.

Your photographs are lovely. How wonderful that we will all benefit from you new knowledge!


Wow, I could have written this post (except for the computer problems that is). I just started a photography course myself, to learn to use my own Big Black in the way it was born to be used. I just started and have so much to learn. Please post often about your assignments, so that I can steal your ideas, when I get to have the same tasks ;-).
Greetings and have a nice week!


Oh, I am really hoping to take a class like this sometime in the near future...
It scares me a little, but I guess hearing that you are scared and feel behind the curve makes me feel just a smidge better.


You look like you are doing just great in the photography class. Keep it up. The rewards of learning to use the camera and process the images properly will pay off.


Great pictures...I especially like the Yummy guy at the end of the counter in your 1st picture :)
I too am looking forward to taking a class someday, I've got sooooo much to learn!


I think you're already a very instinctive photographer - always great feeling, moods and colour in your lovely photos.
As for being distracted by politics - we had live coverage of the first debate here in Australia - watched some of it but it did sort of clash with the grand final of our Aust rules would think McCain and Obama should have kept that in mind when they set the Why ever not?
All the best with the class and the computer issues. x


Love your photos. You are anything but boring, so just forget that. Kudos to you for taking a class that is so indepth and loving it. Hope all the computer stuff gets worked out OK and soon.


Great photos - I love the tree! Congrats on taking the class. I've always thought you take beautiful pictures - hope you have fun!


It must be great to take a photography class! I was just talking to my husband today about how I really need to have a better understanding the mechanics of digital photography. Have fun!


Bravo! I think what you're doing is fabulous and I've been looking forward to doing a class like the one you're taking - for a while. My work this autumn will be learning how to make glass beads...THEN I'll take the photography class, and the weaving class...and...and...etc. Thanks for always being so inspiring in spite of all the technical glitches with your internet service - AH! mercury retrograde can be blamed for all technical and communication glitches - and look for things to smooth out after Oct. 15...
Keep up your great work!


This post is so timely for me. Since I carry my own "small silver" everywhere, my husband just surprised me with a "big black." I so want to learn all it/I can do, but dread reading that thick manual. Also signing up for a class. I'm terrified!


The study of shadows and the picture of the bread are especially nice! Keep at it, you are really growing!

I love those shots


Oh! I was just so thrilled that you left a post on the weekend! I usually can't wait until Mondays... when I know all my favourite bloggers will tell me how their weekends went.... when what, huh??.. a Sunday post! How UN-boring is that?! Thanks! :-)


Alicia, I have always been impressed with your just seem to have "an eye." Can't imagine how fabulous your shots will be now after this class!


Yay! I can't wait to see how your photography changes. Maybe you can teach those of us who aren't taking a class a few things? No way is this boring!


i love these photographs! they are so un-YOU, but so fantastic! i havent had a photo class in 6 years and sometimes it takes a trip to someplace new to get me excited about it, but when i do, im amazed at how it all comes back! and i still shoot in manual mode after all these years--with real film! haha antiquated, i know

When I Take Pictures
