Yesterday, I signed up for my second photography class, meeting every Saturday afternoon for eight weeks starting in January. I learned much from the first class I took last summer, and I have been looking for a more advanced class.

My goals with the class are to work on finding the “art” in the world and capturing it the way I want in the camera.
