I'm taking Barbara Carroll's photography course on BPS, and I'm loving it. I've owned a Digital Rebel XT for a year now, and I've learned more about my camera in two weeks than I managed to teach myself in a year. This week I got a new lens and now there's even more to learn. I've managed to complete most of the assignments although the cold, snowy weather has prevented me from talking Tracy into going out to sit in the same spot six different times in the day to evaluate how light affects your pictures. Maybe next weekend. Today I put together two layouts with photos I've taken for the course. All the photos are of Matt, who has been an incredibly patient and willing model for me every time he stops by. The first layout is my favorite photograph of Matt so far, and the second is a collage of photos I did for the Designing with the 2007 Calendar Challenge at 2Peas. I have some other photos to upload to the Photo-a-Day blog on the sidebar as well. Maybe later tonight.
