This weekend I had the chance to attend Nikon School. The class had a lot to do with types of lenses and lighting (flash and natural). It was a one day class that two wonderful photographers taught. I feel that I actually know more than I thought I knew. I need to get more confidence in myself as a photographer. I also need to use what I know instead of just going out and taking a quick shot of something. I need to really view objects in different angles. I love when I go somewhere and learn something new and I did! Now I just really want a Nikon Speedlight. Off camera flash is so much better.
I was disappointed that Nikon did not give goodie bags to its attendees, just something beside a little notebook. Really that is part of the fun too! Of course my winner's luck (which I do not have) did not win me a raffle prize darn! The other thing is I heard in the past they brought along their lenses and other items. I would have loved to look at some of their lenses. I only have one lens I want but that will be in most likely in my retirement days and my child is done with college! I was impressed by NX2 Capture software, I am getting that for sure.
The night before class my mom and I spent the night at my aunt and uncle's house. It was so nice to see them again, been a while. They have exchange students living at their home. The students are attending an English program. The students were from Saudi Arabia. The were a fun group of kids.
I did get a capture of the Super Moon, I have a phone line running through it because the location did not have a clear shot of the sky.
