Yesterday I treated myself to not only a day off, but to something I have wanted to do for quite a while.
I took a photography workshop, with Carl Heilman, a well known, and incredibly talented, photographer who lives in the area.
The course was given at the Adirondack Folk School, in Lake Luzerne, N.Y.
It started at 12 noon, and went to 8pm. It was about 3-4 hours of class room, and the rest outside with our cameras. There were 10 of us.
I have had my Nikon D 40 for a few years, but I admit, I have not really known how to use it. I mostly used Auto, without the flash, and took a ton of photos, and hoped for the best.
All the pictures you are about to see, are straight out of the camera, they have not been tweaked one tiny bit. They were all taken on Aperture priority, which may not be too impressive to some, but since I have never taken one photo previously that didn't turn out totally BLACK, it is a big deal to me.
So without further ado, here they are, without any chatter.
(Lake Luzerne btw is a gorgeous, absolutely beautiful, little town, and I highly recommend it, and the school)
Tell me I did good.
I did, right??
