I *heart* Photography!!!

I had a little fun photography session with a guy at Best Buy. I went in last week and asked for a few tips on the Canon 40D. It was busy but he told me what days he worked and to come back then and he would be happy to show me some things. I went after class today and brought my camera in with me. I have never ventured into the manual setting on my camera as I don't understand all the shutter speed, aperture, etc. He went through all those settings with me and was taking different pics so I could compare them. I really appreciate him taking the time to do this for me! I can't wait till I can have more time to use some of the tips he told me!

Then he also was putting different lenses on my camera. I really want a wide angle lens so he put that on my camera and WOW!!! I love it!!! I didn't like the price!! I took a picture with it so I can compare it also. I hope I can get that lens before I go to Paris!! I mentioned that would be great to take pictures of the Eiffel Tower and he agreed with me! :-) I might have to find a cheaper one though.

I really, really hate school!!!! Today after being on Spring break I had to go back to school. I had a test in American Government. I did horrible on this test!!! I went over the study guides but couldn't get all these committees all straight in my head. I am not sure where he came up with one of the essay questions! We hadn't talked about it in class. The next study guide for next week is kinda long! I have gotten things highlighted in my book, I just need to type all of it up. Thursday morning I get to see how bad I did on my mid-term in New Testament! I am soo sick of school! I am plan to study till my brains ooze out so I can be done!!!!

I should really be in bed at the moment. I was waiting for some laundry to be done so I can put it in the dryer before heading to bed. I am off to bed now!!!
