So the big burning $60,000 dollar question is did I learn anything in this weekend’s confidence slash photography workshop. Well…on the confidence piece, I learned a lot but not necessarily in the way that I expected to. I’m still processing on that front, and not quite sure how to translate it all for public consumption – I think parts of it simply aren’t for public consumption. It might just be one of those “you had to be there” things, but let’s just say it gave me a lot to think about.
On the photography piece, I finally cracked the manual settings. I always got them “in principle” but there’s nothing like patient live instructors for bringing it from theory to practice. Also, they showed me the right button on my camera. Turns out that Canons have an “on” and a “more on” setting. Who knew – apparently not the instruction booklet. It’s going to take practice of course, but there is nowhere to go but up. I was catching up on some blogs the other day and Erin at Elements of Style had a post about cliched quotes that she likes, and one of them caught my eye because I didn’t actually know it.
So not quite at great, but on the way to a start – as for how the start is going, you be the judge.
