I've been feeling the need to learn new things, lately. So, since I've recently paid a considerable amount for my awesome new camera, I decided that the first thing to learn would be to learn the technique behind photography.
If I say so myself, I have a good eye for composition, but I had no idea about exposure, ISOs, the meaning of aperture and shutter speed etc.
As luck would have it, I barely voiced my desire for a photography course before my grandmother told me there was one advertised in the local paper.
It was basically a day-long crash course, but I learnt so much that I'll have to go through the notes again to refresh my memory. Then I'm going to familiarize myself with the settings so I can play around with them.
Lots of failed photos will follow, I'm sure, but hey, I'm going to learn a lot.
Which is a good thing. Because I'm heading overseas again on business in May. This time to France and Rotterdam and since we'll be driving between the cities, there will be plenty of chances for awesome pics. This also means I'll probably be posting more photos as the time comes, but I'll try to keep them rare so they're appreciated. ;-)
On that note, I leave you with the sunset view from my home. I took this the night I returned from Berlin.
If you look at the mountains, the right end of the series is Table Mountain.
So what do you think of the picture idea? Sound good to you?
