So much exhausting stuff going on at work right now and none of it worth writing about. *laugh*
Had my third photography class last night…the numbers are really stressing me out. My learning disability with numbers is really messing me up … but I’m trying not to freak out and just absorb what everything means. I’m a grown-up for god’s sake. I know I’m not stupid … it just takes me longer to learn certain things. I love being a grown-up… When I was a kid in school I felt like the dumbest kid in class, now I know better…
These are the photos I took into class for critque. Our assignment was “lines”. This first one was a happy accident. I am practicing “depth of field” with my camera (I never knew I could do this with my camera) so while I was setting up my shot and fiddling with my aperture etc etc. Gerry was VERY bored and yawned and I managed to catch it. I love this photo as did my teacher.
This one I was practicing “depth of field” again and seeing what range my camera has.
I don’t think it’s much of a shot… but Gerry loves it for some reason.
I seriously need a vacation or something… Or a day off with NOTHING to do. Owning your own business is really exhausting. It is very rare when we have a day off and we don’t do something “work” related. A cabin in the woods with no phone or internet access sounds like something I need right now. Or maybe just a massage.
Hey, Sarah, we’ve got a cottage out on a lake, with no road access…its perfect for what you need 😉
Great photos! I would LOVE to take a class like that. There are lots of cabins to rent in and around Victoria- get off your cute little butt and make some calls. Surprise your hubby. Do it! Do it!
And… that photo of Gerry is fricking awesome.
I love it as well…
I love that pic of Gerry. I think you’ll be a great photographer, Sarah!
Hey, we know of a cabin up in Tofino if you’re wanting a little weekend getaway. You drive up to a wooded area, follow a skinny little path in and there’s this sweet little place built up against a hill with a tiny little creek in the tiny little back yard. SO awesome. I could live there.
We are not able to take big long holidays so we recharge with ‘cabin weekends’ every few months. It’s great.
I love your photos, and I am also a budding photographer and a vegan of course 🙂 What camera do you shoot with?
Thanks for the compliment. 🙂
I shoot with a little digital point and shoot. The Canon Powershot S-70. I love it. It’s so light and small I can take it just about anywhere…
I am going to get a SLR soon… just gotta save some coin.
Nice pix, Sarah!
your pics are really beautiful! great shots.
and thanks for posting that “depth of field” link.
i just bought an SLR, the canon D350 “rebel”, and i have the same thing with numbers…
but it is SO much fun…looking forward to a long quiet weekend with just the camera and lots of time to get to know it better.
hope you’re well! go and get that massage. 🙂
oh, i’m sure you’ve heard about this page…? http://www.veganink.com
Sarah…I have Canon Powershot too. Who know I could do depth of field? I really shood read the manual one of these days!
