This was taken, yes- sorry, yet again, at the Opryland Hotel during the BlissDom convention. Seriously, if there is any way you can make it there next year, I highly recommend it. It was expensive, especially if you have to fly, but you do get SO much… meals, drinks, entertainment (we saw 4 well-know musicians within 10′ of the stage), education, “swag” (aka: free stuff, including jewelry, bags, key-chains, CD’s, … and the list goes on), and of course, my favorite part, the opportunity to meet and begin and continue relationships with amazing, inspiring women in real life.
Okay. Enough with the commercial.
Today is day 1 of 52. I hope you will find this project enlightening and inspiring as you journey with me in the growth of our camera prowess. I will try to give some educational cues as we go along, too, because I intend to be doing some reading and research and studying and stuff. So here’s my first suggestion: go read Darcy’s 31 Days to a Better Photo series at My3Boybarians. You can find it here. This series truly changed my understanding of manual photography, and I’ve been taking pictures for years. Be sure to say Hey! and Thanks! when you’re there, just because manners are nice. She’s doling out this stuff for free, and there’s no telling how much time she put into it. Darcy is awesome.
So here we go!
