Introducing "I See, You See" Tuesdays

Megan, over at ChasingDavies, and I started our 8-week long "Introduction to Digital SLR" photography class at the Kansas City Art Institute tonight.  The class runs for 3 hours every Tuesday and we are given projects every week to take all sorts of pictures having to do with what we learned in our class.

Tonight, we just went through the basics and learned a little more about our cameras, which in itself was worth the price we paid to take the class! I took four pages of notes.... welcome back to school/learning!

Anyway, we had to go around and share 3-5 pictures we have taken so I went sifting through my blog posts to find half decent ones, in fear that everyone there would be somewhat professional and kick my pictures out of the water.

Of course, I get called on to show my pictures first... I immediately started sweating with nervousness knowing that people would be seeing my pictures AND for the first time I would see the look on strangers' faces revealing what they REALLY thought of my pictures.

It went surprisingly well, and everyone was nice enough to give me a little compliment here and there.  But I tell you what... I will have to get used to talking about my work in person as opposed to you guys and gals.  YOU are who I'd prefer to share them with because you are all so kind AND, not gonna lie, I can't see your faces/reactions to a bad picture so makes me feel a little more at ease :)

So here we are, kicking off the class with a bang! Stay tuned next Tuesday when I reveal what our project was for this coming week.  I'm pretty excited about it!!!

 Catch up on ChasingDavies to see how her classes are bettering her photography skills as well!


  1. Tomorrow on my blog you will see my outfit pics taken by LAURA!!! :) Tuesdays are going to be a fun night!

  2. That sounds like a really great class! I'd love to sign up for something like that.

    I know what you mean about sharing [anything] on here being easier than doing it in person.

    Such cute pics of you guys! I REALLY like your sweater


  3. These are the BEST classes to take and I hope you enjoy it. It is a tougher critique. I've done it and you do actually get all nervous and tense when it's your turn. Have fun, though. You'll get a lot out of it.


Thank you for letting me know what you think!
