I do much better at taking classes where I can just watch a video and do it. This year I've signed up for classes that require me to stop and think, much to my dismay.... It causes me to procrastinate about even READING the lessons. (what is the stumbling block that mind (or heart) seems to throw up when it comes time for such things.)
My most recent class was an expensive one (compared to all others I've taken) and I really felt that it would be a turning point in my photography. (And I'm over a week behind)
Well, this morning I had 2 hours free and just had to MAKE myself go somewhere, get coffee, sit down and read and contemplate and write, as I went through it.
Hallelujah! Break through! I actually made great notes as thoughts came to mind while reading. By the time I finished, the questions listed at the end had pretty much been answered.
Another thing I've found hard in this class is that discussion is held in a Flickr group. This is a new habit I'll have to get into. I post photos occasionally, (I'm much more regular on Instagram, as in daily.) But now that 2 weeks plus have passed, I have tons of 'reading' of discussions to catch up on. And as I finally begin to read I get to know everyone, but unless I join in and post or comment, no one gets to know me. The good thing is I already 'know' a few of the gals and am at least familiar with many others. Mostly from IG or Kim Klassen's texture groupies.
So... my main goal for this class is to LEARN, learn more about what I want to shoot, the second is to get to know the others better.
And yes, I believe this will be a turning point in my photography. Thanks to Kat Sloma.
