Photography weekend

This past weekend I got to run away with the Divine Miss M for a stress free two days of learning more about our cameras.

Unfortunately this was held at a middle school where the bodies are much smaller and their auditorium seemed to be build more for them than us.  I never realized sitting for hours a day could be so exhausting.  The closeness of the chairs meant you could not easily cross your legs and if anyone needed to exit the row everyone had to literally get up and stand in the aisle to accommodate them.

But, we learned a great deal and were both inspired to work harder with our cameras.  So, at least it made me finally download the photos I shared yesterday and begin to work on some of the others.

The timing of this is good for me as I will be putting away my doll making for about a year (at least as the major emphasis) and will be doing more with my camera and photoshop.  This will be very good for me as I tend to jump around from one thing to another and not get very good at any of it.  Nothing like limited space to make one narrow their focus.

After listening to the seminar by Mike Moats on macro photography I am newly inspired.  This has always been a direction I've wanted to go and he combines his skills in such a way that he is creating artwork with it.  Perhaps this will be a new direction for me to explore.

Long Live the Queen of the Cameras

  1. One of these days, I'm going to be able to attend some of these photography seminars. Till then, I'll enjoy your photos. I would be lost without my camera and Photoshop. Enjoy your new hobby. Have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
