Stain Colored Thoughts: Digital Camera Course - Afterthoughts

Hard work = an A grade

Originally written August 3rd,

Well I kicked butt in my final, received a 49/50. Overall I had a blast in the class and the teacher was absolutely wonderful. Even though I feel as though I only learned about Camera Raw in regards to Photoshop while everyone else learned way more than me. I'm not going to let it deter me. I will try to learn more about it and some other graphic software as well. I'm waiting on my final grade but I know I have an A+. I had so much extra credit in the class I didn't want to take anything for granted. I enjoyed the assignments given and even did extra on a few of them. I really enjoyed this class because it was a Hybrid class. Part internet and the other part being in the classroom. We used state of the art equipment from Macs to a printing room that had some of the biggest printers I had ever seen.

This fall I start a film photography class, not with the same teacher but still hope to learn a lot. I can't wait to try out a darkroom. An experience I've always wanted to have. I also have a few film cameras to choose from to use for my class. I'm debating between my Canon Elan 7ne or my Pentax K1000. I do know at least with my Canon the lenses from my digital camera are compatible with the Canon Elan 7ne. Also with my film camera being full frame I can compare to my crop digital camera and see how much through my view finder I've been missing while working with my digital camera.

I was delaying doing this post because I wanted to see my final score in the class since I still had not received final grades on some assignments that I did. But unfortunately my professor's condo that she JUST moved into was flooded due to the sprinkler system of the unit above her going off. When her daughter opened up the door to her place it was a mini flood that came out. Not good. So I haven't bothered her about it, especially since I know I have an A in the class.

Looking forward the next chapter.
