It's no secret to anyone who knows me that perfect concentration is not something that comes easy for me and is usually why I hesitate to do join alongs.
The time that I took away from the internet and social media this summer went a long way with helping me to stay a bit more focused, so I decided to take an online class that starts in a few weeks.
The class is a photography processing class called Start To Finish and is taught by Kim Klassen. I do own a class of hers and have found her teaching methods easy to follow along with. Because the class I already have is a go at your own pace class it was easy for me to not stay with it and forever forgetting what I had learned..aggh. It proved to be very frustrating for me. (how ironic the name of this new class is for me..ha)
This time I am going to do the class with a group, which I know I will be more likely to stay with it. One of the reasons I am taking this class is because I want to completely revamp my website. I want to learn how to take better pictures and more importantly come up with a logo that I will be proud of.
So in trying to have all of my ducks in a row ahead of time instead of my typical rush the day or night before, I have downloaded Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom using their new Creative Cloud and set about cleaning all of my lenses and my camera.
A while back my brother who is a fantastic photographer recommended some affordable and a few that were a little bit of a stretch lenses to me for my camera bag. I had the sensor on my older Nikon D300 professionally cleaned and I used this video to clean the lenses. Wow, what a difference. You don't realize how dirty they can get.
Norman has a great website, go check it out!
So, I am really looking forward to this class and hope that I not only learn some new things, but hope that my cluttery brain can retain it this time around!
I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend in your corner of the world!
