So back in the beginning of January, I talked a bit about the things I was looking to change, create, or get rid, of in my post about my resolutions. One of the first things I did was go see the doctor and I’m mostly on track with that – I may have had a bad day yesterday, but mostly on track and I’m happy with my progress on that front.
The second thing I’ve been working on is creativity – I talked in the first post about figuring out what makes my heart sing and taking pictures does that. I don’t know that I’d want to be a pro, but I love taking pictures of the events that we go to, of the field trips we take, the food we eat, etc. I have to admit that I was not much of a photographer when you had to go develop film, but since digital photography became affordable, I have been all over it – I got my first digital camera in 1999. Back in December, I went on a photo walk with local photographer, Kent Weakley after having taken one of his online courses. I really enjoyed the course – but there were some things I just didn’t quite get, so I thought that taking the walking class I’d have the opportunity to ask him about the things that confused me. You see, I’ve really been trying to “up my game” when it comes to taking pictures and I was getting frustrated that I couldn’t figure some things out. Kent was great, he really took the time to figure out what my problem was and he was so nice about it. In the end, it turned out that my camera (a high end point and shoot) was still auto focusing even when I was telling it not to.
