Through the base library, I have access to Universal Class. They are online professional development courses. I signed up for Digital Photography 101 and have six months to complete it. I am just using my Canon point and shoot camera, not an SLR, but I am hoping to learn how to better use it and take better photos. Perhaps after I improve, I can upgrade. In the meantime, I am looking forward to this course.
Lesson One is a short lesson on the history of photography and the first lesson was to apply the rule of thirds in taking a couple photos. Here are my pictures. I know, not very creative, but maybe in a few months I can impress. ;-)
