I have now reached a plateau in the photography learning curve. I’m perched on a ledge and looking out at the scenery. Huge snowflakes are falling gently from the sky. I occasionally stop and focus on individual flakes . . .
Yesterday Pete installed Photoshop on our computer, and together we figured out a few things. I can now get into and out of the program. It’s like being able to enter and exit a room. And while I’m not there yet, I’m figuring out how to move about in that room. And I now understand the difference between Raw and JPG files.
I’m now also able to do minimal problem solving when taking photos. I can increase and decrease the amount of light in an image, and also depth of field.
It’s all about light, and finally we have more of it. Hope-springs-eternal.
Have decided for now to do cartoons in black and white.
