I attended a photography class with my youngest daughter Jen. It was a fun afternoon of classroom and some practice outside. It was about 20 F so the weather was not too cold.
I learned a few things. I have a new appreciation for Spot Metering and I got in the P mode (program) something I have not ventured into before. Canon people should all sit together, especially when the instructor has a Nikon! We can learn from each other. It was fun to see a couple of teenage girls with new cameras! There were several people with point and shoot cameras also. The Instructor said that in order to take good photos you should have a fully charged battery and a SD card in your camera.
We went outside for a short photo session, I did not go out on the lake (it was very icy) but found several good subjects near the building.

I get bored with photography in the winter, so this class was a good one for me to take. You are never too old to learn something new!
This was a free class put on by the Lake Bemidji State Park, the Instructor was retired Law Enforcement with the Minnesota BCA. Crime scene photos were her specialty.
