It's NOT snowing today--putting on my Happy Dance shoes

I'm having a blast in my photography class. The instructor is a lot of fun and knows how to engage the class--she brings wine. Nice!

Here's some of the homework I showed last night, a couple of which I've posted here before:

(Sophie, shot in manual mode)

(shallow depth of field)

(another shallow depth of field)

(deep depth of field)

I got really good comments on my photos, and found out one of my classmates is a knitter. Awesome! The instructor thinks I should enter the landscape photo in a juried show that's coming up soon. That made me feel really good about my progress. Just shows you what taking a few lessons will do--in photography, knitting, whatever. If you want to get better at something, go where the knowledge is.

Tomorrow we're going to a park to shoot landscape abstracts. That should be pretty cool and I'm hoping I can translate this to my knitting photos--I'll learn to look at familiar objects in a different way.

Have a fabulous weekend everybody! And cross your fingers that the sun keeps shining here in Colorado. We may get summer yet.
