An awful cold creeped up on me, which explains why I was feeling so crummy last week. I'm still recovering here in my ultra humid bedroom which closely resembles an Amazon rainforest at this moment (vaporizer on overdrive).
I've been participating in an online photography class called Picture Fall with Tracey Clark over at Big Picture Classes. I am really enjoying it, at least I was until things got a little more challenging for me, and I started feeling pretty scattered (which now I can at least partially blame on approaching illness). I got back at it today and am pretty happy with my progress. They're offering another class after this one called Picture the Holidays.
note: I have no affiliation with Big Picture classes other than as a happy customer.
I also picked up the book, Expressive Photography, written by Tracey Clark and her and her friends over at Shutter Sisters. I really like the book, and feel like it's pushed me to think about different ways to frame my photos, things that I probably wouldn't have thought to try. This book is not full of technical jargon, rather, it's about looking through the lens with fresh eyes. I think it is the perfect companion for more straight forward technical books that you may own. I will list that in the Amazon box that I've added at the bottom right of my blog, and I do receive a small percentage of any purchases made when someone clicks through down there.
I will be back in the next few days with a few new projects that I've done elsewhere. I hope you don't mind when I share those-- I'm not incented to do so, I just like to share them here. After all of the crazy running around my yard I do when I'm making/ setting up/ photographing those pieces, it seems a must to show them to people who've been along for the ride these last few years.
