I have a digital SLR, Canon EOS Digital XTi with 4 lenses and a flash unit. I received this camera as a reward for designing a logo, from a fellow teacher when she purchased a newer, more powerful camera.
I would love to return to Germany some day, as I lived there for 4 years, when my dad and our family were stationed there in the Army, from 1971 - 1975. I would also like to experience Hawaii
Though I've taken tens of thousands of photos in my lifetime, the majority have been point-and-shoot scenarios. I feel comfortable around the camera, but also relatively clueless. I took two photography classes at Grossmont Community College in 1982 & 1983, one of which was studio photography for a fine arts portfolio of my drawings, paintings & sculptures. A major part of the first class was developing film and using an enlarger, but that was 32 years ago, and now everything is digital.
Would it be too much of a cliché to say Ansel Adams? His is the only name I recall from a photography class I took in college 32 years ago.
Graphic Designer 31 years. Photography has always been a part of my graphics, but I still feel like a novice, particularly digital. I just signed a contract to teach Digital Photography & am feeling overwhelmed. Looking to fast-track my skillset.
