So over the next 8 weeks, you'll probably see me posting a little more often than usual.  And that's because I'm going to be using my camera a little more frequently!  I was gifted with the incredible blessing of a photography class with Lisa and I really don't think I could be any more excited!  Her photography is gorgeous and I've admired it ever since I stumbled across her blog, oh, well over a year ago.  So, yes, "excited" is kinda' an understatement...

It's week 1 and I've already picked up great tips/tricks and basic info.  This photography thing does not come natural - it's hard for me to wrap my brain around how my camera works and I really have to study and review my materials, go practice, then come back and study and review more!  It's hard work!

So here are some of my favorite shots from my first practice round.  Each image has been edited some in photoshop, because I just can't help myself.  (It's fun to play.)

1/320   f2.8   iso100

1/400   f2.8   iso200

1/640   f2.8   iso200

1/400   f2.8   iso200

1/640   f2.8   iso200

1/400   f2.8   iso200

And because I failed miserably at the second half of my assignment, it looks like we're going to have to try another round tomorrow!
