OK, so you are all going to say "What did you learn in your new class today Karen?"
Well, I learned how embarrassing it is when you are only 1 of 3 that didn't know what model camera I have.
I learned what SLR stands for. Single lense reflex. Just don't ask me what it means.
I learned there is a huge on-going battle between Nikon owners and Canon owners. HA!
I learned how to buy a camera on-line. (hello?)
I learned I won't begin learning how to use my camera for 3 weeks. :(
I learned we should all be making 3 copies of our photos, storing separately and one of those should be off-site. And storing on CD's is not one of them because CD's probably won't work in 15 years and then you will be SOL!
Here is the reason I signed up for the course.
"Photo 70 - Digital made easy. The perfect course for the beginning photographer who knows little about photography and less about digital. Starting with how to use your digital camera . . . "
I kid you not - there were literally PHOTOGRAPHERS taking this course. ??? Did I miss something? If you've been taking aerial photographs for the past 20 years - why are you here? If you have submitted pictures to the LA Times for print - why are you here? At the end of the day I looked at her and said "Just want to make sure I am in the right place. We are going to learn how to use our camera - right?" She laughed and said yes. Okey dokey - I'm holding her to it!
So much of today was so over my head. I had to raise my hand and ask what SLR was. It sounds like a car!! My friend Jeanne is worse than me though. So that made me feel a little better.
So that was my 3 hour morning. But Shelley - nobody wore pajamas!!! I was thinking about you!!!
The saga continues . . .
