I've taken two online photography classes. I don't like to admit this, especially to the blog-o-sphere, because I don't want to be labeled as one of those people who thinks she can start a photography business because she bought a DSLR. I am not that person.
I love photography. I was introduced to "real" cameras when I was on yearbook staff in high school. I loved it--both shooting and developing. As a senior I spent time working in a portrait studio as part of an internship. I loved that too.
I thought about majoring in photography at the BYU, but a drawing course was a requirement and I knew I couldn't do that, so I didn't.
But I did take these two classes because I love taking photographs and I wanted to improve. And I've learned a lot. And I love the pictures that I'm taking of my family and friends.
I've been expanding my knowledge and skills. And I'm proud of myself for doing that. So there.
