Had a FANTASTIC opportunity to go to a photography class tonight taught by a local photo studio - everything was incredibly cool. The presentation was very VERY helpful and I'm going to break out of my box and shoot manual more often - I keep telling myself, the more I try to shoot in manual, the more easy it will become. Right now I feel like I have to solve a very complex algebraic equation in order to take one simple shot. :)
The studio was really pretty dark - I was impressed with how this picture turned out without flash. See! Already learning!
