The other new thing is a photo course with Steve Sonheim called 'Photo Silly'. It has a daily assignment, and also a quite easily understood technical guide, which has already cleared a few things up for me. I find the technical side of any interest the boring part, and am therefore lazy at it and don't make much of an effort. However, I do realise that there is a reason for this knowledge, and therefore want to change this annoying habit of mine. So, the types of wool I am using have become more important to me in felting, the ability to read a pattern (knitting or crocheting) would be great, and the understanding of more than just the auto setting on my camera is a goal! In that light, this is my own discovery while doing the class assignment tonight-how to make my camera have a long exposure. Also I have finally found out the purpose of ISO! (not that I used it here but I could have!-you need a high ISO setting to photograph in low light without a flash-but the pictures will be grainier, the higher the ISO setting is) I also managed to use the self timer-hurray for small steps!
The assignment tonight involved a leaf and a face-and Cassie's was the face I chose. I took about 45 pictures and these are my favourites. She was very patient and helpful by mainly staying still!
