I've been thinking about it since Mandy and Marcia did it last year:
I watched them having so much fun with the online photo class. I witnessed their joy in experimenting with their cameras. And I marveled at the progression of their photography.
And I love the ensuing dialogue...the metaphors about photography and life.
Perfectionism can be paralyzing.
You often have to go through a lot of duds to find a jewel.
Don't be afraid to play!
Let your equipment do the work...cameras are equipped with auto functions for a reason...the hardest way is not always the best way.
Seek beauty. It's not always there at face value. Sometimes you have to lie on the floor...or climb a tree...or close your eyes to see it.
"Elevate the ordinary and explore the simple joy of creativity."
Heighten your awareness. See the world in a new and different way.
Thanks to the incredibly thoughtful and extremely generous gift of a dear friend, and the encouragement of another, I'm doing it!!!
The class started on Monday. It was a day of introductions, some housekeeping, and a bit of philosophy. Yesterday was the first day I "officially" took any pictures.
So far, here's my favorite.
Just a little glimpse into our game of life (or Candy Land, as the case may be). :)
I'm so excited for this journey!!!
