Photography 101...Wrapping It Up

After 6 classes, I can honestly say I am so glad I took this course!  I've shared bits of my new knowledge and hope it has also helped all of you!  I would say, though, if you are thinking at all about taking a class, DO IT!  You'll be glad you did!  A few things I didn't share that I love.

Photography means drawing with light.  Isn't that cool!?  I've never considered myself a painter or someone who could draw, but with light...well, I think I can do that!

Another thing that I love that helps me to take better photos is to think about what story I want to tell with the photo.  What do I want to focus on that will capture the moment?  It will change the way you take photos!

these 2 make an excellent story!

I've also been looking at a macro filter.  Does anyone out there use one of these?  It's a much cheaper alternative to the wide angle 12-24mm zoom lens I was drooling over!  I've heard you get what you pay for, but a good macro filter would probably run about $30.  Seems like a decent price to me.
Well, that concludes Photography 101.  I hope you have learned something new or at least been inspired to try some new things with your camera.  It's so fun and the possibilities are endless!

Can you show an example (if you have one) of how the filter makes a difference?

And how did you find your class?
