Back to Reality

18 Jun

After a week away from reality in Cancun, it’s time to get my head back in the game.

I’m really excited about some of the cool pictures I got on vacation, including the one above.  Finally, I’m feeling as though my photo skills are looking up.  Why the sudden change in outlook?  Well, having the right tools really helps.

I am please to say, I can already cross 2 items off my 30 before 30 list

 

4. Buy a ‘big girl’ camera
5. Take a photography class (to learn how to use said ‘big girl’ camera)

 

A few days before vacation, I got my new toy: a Sony NEX 5n.  I shot using the auto mode all vacation, but I have yet to really unleash it’s full power with the manual settings.  Right around the time I ordered my camera, Living Social was offering a local 3 hour digital photography workshop.  Deal!  The workshop yesterday was exactly what I was hoping for.  I am now enlightened about HOW to use all the manual settings.  Now all I have to do is play around with the camera and figure out the best settings to get the aesthetic I’m looking for.  Later this week, I’ll share some of my experimental photoshoots.

I can’t wait to work it all out and start sharing with you a much higher caliber of photos!
