I have a degree in Studio Art. In order to get that degree, I took several photography classes and really enjoyed them. After I graduated, I didn’t have access to a darkroom (this was 2000, so pre-digital camera days) so I put my hobby on hold for several years. Fast forward to Christmas 2009, when I got a DSLR for a present.
It had been many years since I’d picked up a manual camera so I had to refresh my memory about things like ISO, f-stops and aperture. I bought a Canon Rebel for Dummies book (don’t laugh!) but I wanted to learn more. So I signed up for a Digital 101 class at a local photography store. That was Spring of last year. I really enjoyed the class but life got busy for a while.
Taking those dog pictures at work really renewed my interest again and I signed up for the intermediate class – Digital 102. I had my first class last week. Every week, we have homework that’s due the following week. Our homework for tomorrow was to take pictures illustrating 4 words out of a list of words. I chose the words:
I didn’t color correct them because I didn’t know if we were supposed to. I’m excited to pursue my hobby more. Sometimes, I feel like I focus so much on food and running and stuff and it’s nice to have another hobby that has nothing to do with those things. Makes me feel like a more well-rounded person.
What are your hobbies that aren’t food/workout related?
