I've enrolled in a photography class, and I am hooked!! I've wanted to learn how to take more artistic pictures for a long time now, and now that I have a good digital camera, I'm ready to start working on it. So I've enrolled in a class on Composition and Lighting at the Univ of Texas, and it's been a good motivation to explore all the mystery settings in the camera other than "Auto"!
I've been reading lots of stuff online, and have been waking up early and heading out with my camera to take advantage of the early morning sun. It's so exciting that I can't fall asleep at night - I'm so impatient for it to be morning so I can go out to take pictures! :)
This morning I walked down to Barton Creek, which is behind our house and got some good pictures of the creek, trees, and one discarded snake skin!!
And here's a better shot of the writing spider -
So from now on I'll upload pictures from my fast growing album - taken for this class. Since I'm pretty new to this, comments and suggestions are totally welcome.
