Today I When to Photography Class.

Have you ever taken a class where you look around at all the other students and what they are doing and realize that you are probably the only one who doesn't have any talent in that area?

Gah.

I'm taking a photography class and I started after the first two classes, so not only am I the only one without, seemingly, raw talent.  I'm also extremely behind.

Our homework to take to tonight's class was all about aperture. 

This is one of the pics I took.

I thought it was cute.  It was the only one I liked out of the 15+ that I took.  But that's the point of taking a class, right?  So you can get better?  And even if I don't have a photography talent, having more knowledge of how to use the camera I have is definitely a good thing.

It also helps that I'm going with a friend.  It's fun to sit in the back and whisper and giggle to each other.  Makes me feel about 15 years younger.

What classes are you taking?  Or have taken?  Were you the talented one?  Or the struggler, like me?

How cool is this?!
I'm with you, I have to take about fifty pictures to get one good one. And we have a super nice camera. Just goes to show, it's the photographer, not the camera, that makes the photos.
And photoshop. Man I love photoshop.

I like your picture! It's cute!

GREAT picture!

I want to take a photography class badly. I wanted to register for a class in my area that was charging reasonably but I was too late. Hopefully in a few months.

So fun! I wish I were taking a class with you that way we can giggle in the back too!

That is such a cute picture! I love baby shoes. =]

I took an art class once. I am actually a pretty good artist, however, my teacher really liked abstract art and he absolutely hated everything I did, because I like to draw from life. It was a rough class and made me stop taking art, which I really regret...

Don't give up and hang in there! You'll get better and better!

I'm not in any classes right now. If I had all the time in the world, I'd love to take a web class. Ok, so I probably wouldn't love it. It would be the most beneficial.
