And what an adventure, Danny boy. I’ll never be able to thank you enough. It’s been an intensive tour of duty…an overload of information…and I’m exhausted (as were most of the other soldiers). But I now know camera functions (A+ in depth of field relative to what I knew before), I can work my camera manually, and I’m adept with my new tripod. I understand the elements of design and am familiar with post production software (NIK is what I’m now salivating for). I’ve learned about local photographic societies from other attendees as well as many awesome photo websites from Sergeant Mike.
Mike, by the way, is a very competent instructor…self-taught, down to earth, and eager to help. He’s a great guy, and I highly recommend his workshop to budding and intermediate macrophiles. If you’re interested in this workshop and looking for others like it or if you’d like to view some of Mike’s work, please visit: tinylanscapes.wordpress.com.
Here’s my graduation portfolio if you’d like to take a look. Click on each image for an expanded view.
Have I told you lately how awesome you are, Danny? Well…You’re AWESOME!
