I am just doing it.

End of last year we got our hands on a brand new camera...and since then I have fallen in love with taking photos. I could literally do it all day, every day.
Only problem is I am stuck on one mode...I have read up and read up on aperture, ISO, shutter speed all these things and I just cannot get my head around it.

I have been umming and ahhing about spending money on a course for a while now. And last month, TF and I  just decided that I should just take the plunge and do it.
So, I have signed up for an incredible photography course at the Vega School.

It's a six week beginners/intermediate course, that takes place once a week in the evenings. Once I am done with this one I will see what the next step is.

I just want to know how to use my camera correctly, so that's the goal for this course...

I am so excited, I can barely contain myself. I start next week Wednesday...

Good on you!

You take such amazing pics now, wait till you learn to NEVER use auto. The possibilities are endless!

Can't wait to see your pics xx

By the way - I forgot to add - I also have a favourite mode it's the AV one, with the lowest Fstop possible. :)

You should chat to @Jenty as she recently held a class. She's an awesome photographer and I'm sure she's a great teacher. (Check out her website www.jeanetteverster.com for more info or follow her on twitter.)

Oh - I am so envious being self-taught!!

Amanda Dovey said...

I've done the course to and it's great to learn how to get around using your camera - when you are done [or during] we should do a photo walk!!??

Tamara said...

SO worth it! You might meet a friend of mine also doing the course. Her name's Yolande.

Enjoy it!
