New Opportunity To Learn

It has been a good 7 weeks in class. Next week is the last of this term.
Notes will be reviewed, questions will be asked, what is confused
will be clarified,  and sign-ups for next term will start.
It has really been great to watch the students progress over
the last few weeks. I sometimes wonder if they realize how far
they have come in such a short time.  As they bring in their work
for comment / critique they are, of course, way too hard on themselves.
The great myth of photography, perpetuated by the manufactures
and the camera sales people, is that anyone with a  camera can
produce a great image.  What the mythology fails to mention is 
that to consistently produce a good images takes a lot of
training and practice.  So students come in thinking that they
should be able to get great results almost instantly and spend
a lot of time beating themselves up when that does not happen.
Like anything else, developing a skill set in photography takes time
and education and a lot of practice.
If you want to really learn how to create great images,
and are willing to make the investment in your progress,
remember that the spring term starts in two weeks.
I am looking forward to working with you.

      Charles,
      If you set the camera on Program or Auto you may, once in a while get a good picture. It does depend upon your definition of a “good photo” which may well be different than mine. Also please remember that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while. LOL
