Pulling my hair out......
I'm laughing now that I actually read the page that I took a picture of...I should have read it first before taking 72 shots playing around with the shutter speed, ISO, and Aperture. Anyhow, I have a headache, heartburn and I'm really confused. Other than that I'm great!
I didn't get the job but I'm okay with that. Besty is a really nice person, and very encouraging. I am eager to learn more from her. She gave me quite a few suggestions and I'm looking into all of them!! Thank you Besty!
I picked Jaylene up from the bus today and the first thing she asked was how the interview went. I told her that I didn't get it, she said "That's okay Mom, you don't need it, you are a better photographer." That comment made my day! I'm so lucky to have such a supporting family. I'm sure everyone was wondering why I wasn't more disappointed about not getting the job; because I know I have so much more to learn. This is my passion, and on the days that I want to pull my hair out I will remember I love doing this. I will keep on going, stop doubting myself and persevere.
So, these pictures, which I know suck (Oops, not very positive) were shot in Manual. I'll figure it out soon. I bought a book on exposure and I plan on reading it over and over until I understand everything. I know I can do this and it will only make me a better photographer.
Wow, sorry for rambling. Off to Walmart for trashbags and Hannah Montana invitations! :)
