I hardly ever make New Year's Resolutions, simply because I don't keep them. I do, however, make goals, because without goals I tend to just think a lot about the things I want to do. Goals are, in a sense, resolutions without the pressure, you know?
In 2013 I have some things I want to do, craftwise.
***Make Aubry a rainbow quilt.
***Make t-shirt quilts for a couple of my kids. The shirts are all picked out and ready to go!
***Finish the double wedding ring quilt that I found at an antique store.
***Grow more confident in machine-quilting.
***Learn to crochet
***Make more things just for me.
***Finish Micah's ties and but out bowties.
***Develop my sewing classes.
***Make a quilt that I love, no matter how hard or how many tiny pieces are in it. A mini-quilt, maybe?
***Sew more for my handmade shop.
***Just sew more in general. It relaxes me.
That's it! I have that list on my desk so I can see it and not forget the direction that I want to go.
I am taking a photography class---again! In fact, it's the same one that I took a couple of years ago.
Back then I didn't take the time to do the homework, which is silly because taking pictures is quite hands-on, and if you don't practice, you won't improve, right?
Our teacher is a very talented photographer and gives us TONS of information each week. It's a bit overwhelming at times, but things seem to be soaking in better this time around. Maybe because it's all been presented to me before!
I am just curious about how you all take photos.
Do you keep your camera in Manual Mode, Av, Tv or Automatic? Or do you use a Point and Shoot?
Normally mine is in Av mode. But, I am upping it to Manual Mode (so many decisions!!!), at least for a while. It seems that White Balance is the thing I forget to check the most. Of course, once I take a blue or yellow picture, I am reminded to set it properly!
