This weekend I was hoping to take some photographs for Assignment #2 of my NYIP course. I'd been toying for over a year with taking photography classes. Then I found out about NYIP through a photography magazine and it peeked my interest, because I'd been looking for something like this program, and wala - there it was. It took me about two weeks to finally decide to invest the time and money into NYIP, I tried find bad things about the program but couldn't (which was a good thing). Then I went online, and still nothing bad. So I took the plunge, and I'm glad I did. The material set off all these light bulbs, and things started clicking. It's really well-done (at least in my opinion).
According to the Weather Channel website the weather in SA is going to suck this weekend. The ideas I had for the assignment had me outside, so now I'll have to challenge myself to come up with something different until the weather is better.
What do I like to photograph: people/portraits, things, nature. Ok, so things is a pretty broad term, but I want to photograph things way up close. So I've started pricing macro lenses, and holy cow are good lenses expensive, and I know this, but it's been awhile since I've seriously looked for a lense. Now I'm begun my macro lense pennies-a-day fund. Santa gave me a good starting point, but I'm hoping my wife will take pity on me and say "yes, go ahead" in the next few months. I'll let you know.
