And this big thing next to it?
We've had this camera for one year now. And I still have no clue how to work 90% of it. I can change it from auto focus to manual. I can change from landscape to portrait to sports. I CANNOT view the shots I've taken (duh!) unless I view them within the split second after I take it.
Well all that is about to change! I'm going back to school. And apparently to the most top notch photography school in the USA! Who knew? A California State school! (Miracle of miracles if you knew what lousy condition this state is in!) I start tomorrow morning and I cannot tell you how excited I am!!! I am going with my two friends, Jeanne, and Connie from Connie turned 50 (hmmmmmmm I think she's due for another name change! :) )
So hopefully in the very near future I will be presenting you with pictures taken with the correct light and lens and all that stuff. YAY!
I also excited to tell you that I have been invited to join in with a "Vintage Valentine Fat Book Swap". How stinkin' fun do you think this is going to be? I am so excited, nervous but excited. It is a swap hosted by Sarah at Gypsy Mermaid Life . A "fat book" is a book made of fabric - thus the pages are much "fatter" than ones made of paper. We each create our own page, 9 of them exactly alike, send them to her, she sews them all together and puts a cover on them and then mails them back to the 9 participants. We have to mail our pages to her by Jan 20th, so I have been busy sewing away (Yes, you heard correctly - sewing!) And we will each have a very special book made with love from all 9 participants. If you visit Jodie at Everything Vintage and go to her early December Silver Bella post, she has an example. OMG! Too fun!
I'm also going to participate in another Valentine Swap hosted by Dolly at From My Cherry Heart. Sign-ups are until January 8th, so you still have time to read all about it and join in on the fun! YAY!
I'll let you know how my first photography class goes! I am so excited!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
