Fall Colors

We had the final class of Basic Digital Photography last night. I'm really bummed cause it was a lot of fun and very informative. But I am going to sign up for Advanced Digital Photography at the end of January and Photoshop in April. I will keep y'all in the know as I go!

So you know the last assignment was "fall colors" which resulted in a lot of work by me! But I did get some pictures on Sunday. The husband took me over to our lease place and we walked thru all the tree groves. Here is what I found......






I took this one in the Panhandle a few weeks ago. I thought it showed the fall colors of that area. Cause there are no trees to illustrate it!


I learned so much in the past six weeks. It was money well spent. I hope my photography will continue to improve. Here's keepin' my fingers crossed!

I love the picture of the bales. There's something very 'fall country' about seeing bales (straw? Hay? Whatever) in the fields.

The pictures you took of leaves are really interesting. They're kind of sad, almost.

Where did you take your class through? Was it a local community thing? Or a college thing?

Good shots--you have the eye for good composition which is not something I think they can teach---

Jen-The class is thru the local community college. It's the first class I've taken where all the students have stayed the entire semester. It was really good. I'm looking forward to the next ones.

Paige-I think I get lucky most of the time.

Hey just wanted to say that I love the pix in this post. Wish I knew a little more about my camera so I can take great photo's like that! :)

P.S. Great photo of the day...or so.

The pics are great!!! Reading your posts on your photography class has been inspiring. No options out here for a local class, but do you think an online class could be a good option?

Love the photo of the day too!

I would love to take a digital photography class. I've recently gotten a new camera and my learning curve is very steep! I do believe that the older I get, the less my brain wants to soak up!! But, your pics are lovely! :)

I love these. They are so beautiful. My favorite is the curling leaf. Again, just beautiful.

Luck is when preparation meets opportunity! You are probably the kind of student that most teachers pray for! What a brilliant job you've done. I enjoy your blog so much, and the pictures just keep getting better! I aspire to make my photos as beautiful and insightful as you have done.
Love the one of your Hubby and Puppy!
And the baled hay looks like a post card. Maybe you should get a portfolio together- try selling a few. For tips go to the Writers Market- a book that gives the name address and needs of every book publisher, magazine-publisher and greeting card publisher. Plus tip on how to sell etc. Go for it girl!

Love, love, love - the second picture!
I just got a new camera (saw it on PW - ivoryhuts camera) and I'm terrified to use it. Reading the manual gives me a headache. I would love to learn how to use it in something other that AUTO mode. I live in the sticks and can't drive at night, so a class at the nearest community collage is out of the question. Boo Hoo:( I think that I might try an online class. Know any that you would reccommend?

Ok I am back I was too tired to try and catch up! I love your photos. You really have a great set of eyes! You make the simple beautiful!
