This past weekend, I was in Stamford, CT for a photography retreat. It was two and a half days aimed at teaching me how to use my digital SLR better. Since the weather was so nice, I decided I should go outside and try to take some pictures and see what I could do. I am proud to say in the matter of 15 minutes I took 400 pictures. Unfortunately, only about 10 came out. This does not surprise or shock me. One of the photographers at the retreat said that when she does a shoot she takes about 1000 and has about 50 that turn out. For me, I am struggling with the light and getting crispness. What I took away from the weekend was that I need to simply just practice, practice, practice. Here is one of the better pictures from today. I did change it into antique using my photo editing software. I had a hard time getting the bink away from Grady and when I finally did, he was extremely sober. Oh well, there is always tomorrow!
