So I start another photography class next month. I say "another" because this will be the 3rd attempt. The first one I took in high school wasn't all it should have been. Our teacher was more occupied with other things than to teach us much. I may not blame him though. He probably got so sick of kids just taking his class as an elective and not because they were interested in photography that he gave up.
I took another class in 2002 at the community college here in town. That didn't last long, for a million different reasons.
So, thanks to my new creative friend Liz and her passion to keep learning, I'm giving this love of photography another try. Here's hoping it goes better than expected! Sometimes I just need another like minded, creative, passionate person to be around that can inspire me to not give up.
I hate to admit it, but sometimes I'm that person that when things get tough, I bail. So when I get frustrated at stuff like not understanding the technical aspects of a camera, I put it back in my closet and let it collect dust.
Maybe this time will be different.
One day, I'd love to shoot photos like hers...
