Monday night I finished up my first Intro to Digital Photography class for this fall at the Pontotoc Technology Center. The intro is really a beginner class, and is fullest right after Christmas, when lots of people have new cameras
that seem alarmingly complex to them. This class is mostly spent in the classroom, talking about white balance, ISO ratings, and battery life. In two weeks, we begin the Intermediate/Advanced session, and it consists mostly of going out into the evening light and shooting. We walk around the grounds of the vo-tech photographing everything from the pond to the fire training tower to each other, all the while paying attention to the light. The light, in the end, is the key to making photographs.
I hope I am giving these people, some of whom are my friends, what they need.
Kathy looks like she’s serious about photography. Two cameras, and an extra lens in her hand. Hopefully, the 2010 Tupelo yearbook will be filled with pictures that she couldn’t have taken without your help.
