For months, friends have been telling me that I need to start blogging on my photography. I had no idea what I was supposed to say until today. Yesterday, I went to an advanced photography workshop. It was simultaneously a refresher course and an eye opener. I learned a new method of thinking in regards to which settings I adjust first. I'm curious to see how it improves my skills. I was also reminded to practice, practice, practice! I am terrible at that! I tend to only grab my camera when I know I'll get the great sweeping landscapes I love so much.
During the workshop, I was "forced" to find things to shoot in the yard of the instructor. Granted, there were beautiful mountains to be seen, if you don't mind houses and cars in the way. So I had to get creative. After all, with 6 other people in the class, I didn't want to be taking the same sorts of pictures as everyone else. My fear was unfounded. I was unique as usual.
