I recently started an on-line photography class, Visual Poetry by Susan Tuttle. You can visit her virtual home at ilka’s attic. Having never taken a photography class, let alone an on-line one, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I had made a promise to myself to take some classes so that I can improve my craft. So, this one sounded interesting — giving your photos a vintage look. So, throwing caution to the wind I enrolled. The class started on Sunday and you know what? I am SO glad I signed up.
Her web site is a delight and easy to navigate. The course is 6 weeks long, with 3 lessons each week. You can move at your own pace, and that is just great. There’s a coffee bar for us to visit, and a flickr group (which I’m STILL trying to figure out). Her lessons are easy to follow – and more importantly, easy to understand and apply to your own work. I am having such fun and so far have only finished the first lesson. And I’d like to share with you the results. This is a photo I took last spring in a small town near where I used to live.
After lesson 1:
Not bad for a first lesson, wouldn’t you agree?
