The Happy Dance!




I've completed about five more jewelry pieces and hope to do more this weekend, particularly the ones made with some velvet I hand dyed. First I have to make friends with my new Nikon camera. I've also started on my "Great Courses" in photography. It is taught by a world class National Geographic photographer and so far I am really impressed with the class. It is college level but starts from nothing and builds at a wonderful achievable pace. There are four DVDs and a book.  This is an investment camera for me so I hope to learn all I can about it. I've also found some adult ed classes at our local community college that will start in the spring so I am hoping to take those as well. Life is good!...........Bunny

ETA: I just want to thank BaMA for suggesting the Great Courses. This is the basic course but there are quite a few more advanced than this as well. Thanks, BaMA...Bunny

  5. I just finished watching these DVD's- he is a wonderful teacher. Even though he is a world class photographer, he comes across as friendly and approachable. Enjoy your camera! Kathy, a frequent lurker but not commenter
