Study Time

I've been spending the majority of my time reading and studying lately. Well, that's if I can pull myself away from FaceBook long enough. In the time since my last post I've completed 2 more sections in my Interior Decorator course.." Principles of Color" and "Decorating with Fabric'' as well as completing two more photography classes at HP.com. One on camera composition and the other on photographing babies in the first year. It's true that I'm past the baby stage in my Mommy career, but I thought it would be a good class to take for information only. I have a friend who will soon be having a baby and Trent's brother and sister-in-Law are expecting sometime next Fall. I'm hoping to be able to "borrow" a baby.

Taking the photography classes on Hp.com has only fueled my passion for Photography. On top of taking the classes I've finished reading a book on the subject and now looking for the next book to start reading. All of this activity has lead me to enroll for the Photography course with the same school I'm taking my Interior Decorator through. At the moment I'm waiting on the final enrollment paper work so I can get started.

I can't even begin to explain how excited I am to start this course. I may never become a professional photographer or even a paid amateur. And you know, that doesn't matter so much to me. I just want to take great photos of my family.

Another reason I am taking the class is Lathan will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall. He is the last of the "litter" so to speak. All four boys will be in school. Which will leave me home alone all day to enjoy peace and quiet, get all the things done in one day that I never could before with little ones running around, and to ultimately become completely and utterly bored out of my mind.....you get the idea.

So just consider this post a warning that you will soon be flooded with pictures on top of pictures of my trying to become a better photographer... Nothing to share as of yet. I still have to complete one more class at Hp.com before I will allow myself to post any new pics. This class is on Photoshop Elements..heehee. And Trent told me I had to finish the painting in the house before I can go out spending my day taking pictures. LOL I guess he's probably right. I'm getting pretty tired of seeing the paint cans in the laundry room too.

Well...that's about all the babbling I'll put you through for now. Until next time stay warm and keep those creative juices flowin'

I can't wait to see all your photos. I wish I had the guts to take on a photgraphy class! I might have to look you up on FB.com; I also spend way too much time out there.
