Yesterday, I revealed that I want to travel to different destinations in Asia and Europe in 2013. (You can check out the specific list of countries by clicking here.) The resolution to travel more definitely inspired my second goal for the New Year: to take a photography class!
As my family travels, we are bound to see some amazing sites and you can bet I'll have a camera with me. I love taking pictures and capturing beautiful landscapes, architecture and people. But, I want to learn how to do so with better detail, lighting and color. Vivid photographs can transport us all back to the destinations we've been to and the moment the pictures were taken. They're the best memento from a trip in my opinion! So, I think this is the year I need to learn how to snap photos with something other than a point and shoot. No more taking a hundred photos in hopes that one turns out right!

but the photo I took wasn't.
My husband has a Nikon D60 - a camera that a knowledgeable photographer can use to take wonderful, detailed photographs. The problem is the darn thing has intimidated me ever since my husband first pulled it out of the box! I'm hoping a class will help me figure out what all those buttons are for. :)
Have you ever taken a photography class? Or did you learn to shoot photos on your own?
