Ready for Round 2

Advanced Photography Class Level 1 starts tomorrow and lasts for 8 sessions. It’s super intensive this time since we will pack 4 hours of lectures and workshops per session and after every lecture the following week will be outdoor events where we will apply what we learned in the classroom.

Pretty exciting stuff.

Level 1 is Flash Photography so guess what I bought tonight. Ta-dah!
It’s a Canon Speedlite 430EX II, the most compatible model for my EOS 400D. One of the tips they gave us in Basic Photography Class is to buy a flash unit with a fully adjustable head, not just rotational but something that can be tilted up to 90 degrees. These controls on the back are scary. I tried reading the manual but gave up just after the first few sections. I’ll figure it out tomorrow along with the rest of the class.Bernie is not taking this class with me since he has more important things to focus on. More on that later.

I’m excited about this new class. Can’t wait to get started.
