A Day in the Life…

I am so excited, I can hardly contain myself.

Today I attended a workshop at The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center.  When I retired in June, my co-teachers gifted me with a Groupon for the workshop.  I was, of course amazed and grateful, but today I was freaked out and intimidated. But, let the games begin.   With a push from my darling husband, and with him at the helm, we drove to Philly and parked in front of the Center – camera at the ready, iPhone in reserve.

Josh was our instructor and he instructed and instructed and he PowerPointed and explained and then we went outside and shot some photos from the instruction and the PowerPointing and Josh helped and explained and instructed and we walked some more.

My head was spinning.  Josh was awesome, but my grey matter ain’t what it use to be. But I got the basics.  I learned a little about ISO, aperture, and f-stops.  I know where some buttons are and what they stand for or what they do ( I think) and it was GREAT! 

But I’ve got long way to go. But, hey! It’s a start. And I’m happy.

Thanks, Josh.

Thanks to my friends at Tatem School.

Thanks to my husband (for many reasons).

      • Oh no, not you, all the manual camera settings – shutter, aperture, metering, and exposure. Phew! A lot to obsorb. 🙂 Took me awhile and I had a six-week class. Lol.

      • Oh! LOL,
        Yes, the instructor said he teaches a college course and he crammed what he could from his semester into 3 hours, so I need more instruction, for sure!
        Sorry for the misunderstanding. My insecurities are showing. 🙂

  1. You will get it. I know you will.

    You’ve been sucked into the photography vortex, there is no escape! You might as well surrender and devote your mind to creative expression via still photography.

    You will love it. You’re on one of the greatest adventures of your life!
