I See. I Photograph. I Download. I Cringe.
When I download my photos, the vision I thought I captured isn’t quite what shows up in the photo. Occasionally, I’m surprised and it’s a great shot. Unfortunately, those are few and far between or I realize John took the photo. When my friend suggested taking a photography class, I jumped at the chance to improve my camera skills.
We showed up yesterday, along with three other ladies, at The Hairy Goat Photography Tours for what ended up being a 7+ hour beginners class. We all had a similar goal ~ taking our cameras off of auto! We spent the 4 hours learning about our cameras with our very knowledgable instructor Michael. After lunch, we ventured outdoors for practical applications of our new knowledge. Both Michael (the instructor) and Corinna (the owner) went on the walking tour so we had very individualized attention. First stop was Leadenhall Market which was very dark at the time. Great to practice ISO, aperture, and shutter speed settings. If you’re interested in taking a class with Hairy Goat while you’re in London, click here for more information.
I follow several blogs/websites whose photos inspire me such as Perry Sorenson Photography and Ron Scubadiver’s Wild Life ~ they do a great job capturing fabulous places and people. Makes me want to do the same ~ document life’s wonders!
