For more than two years, I have taken thousands of photos with my IPhone, IPad, point/shoot camera, and digital camera.
When I signed up to take a photography class at the neighborhood senior citizen center, I knew it was the right choice. Learning and improving photo-taking skills is what I want from this class.
After attending only two sessions, I feel confident that it will be a positive learning experience. Happy with what I have learned thus far, especially, my Water Splash Photo.
Feeling great about this first-time photo-taking experience, I wanted to share it with my friends and family as well as social media friends who:
- view my post on Facebook,
- read my e-mail blasts; or,
- visit my blog.
I didn’t want to share the photo without explaining the process. However, when I sat down to write or talk about it, the mind went blank. Senior moments floated. I couldn’t remember some steps. The steps remembered were scrambled and jumbled. Other steps were totally lost.
What was a SeasonedSistah2 to do? I went to my Google friend and asked, “How do you photograph water being poured into a wine glass.” Within minutes, Google directed me to several videos and I picked You Tube Video #1. Though the technique is a little different, the concept resembles the steps I followed.
It may take a little time to fully understand how to explain what I did, but I definitely feel great about doing it. This SeasonedSistah2 space is still open to exploring, learning, and expanding beyond her comfort zone.
