At the beginning of the month, I made a last minute decision to take a basic DSLR photography workshop with a local photographer. It was a one day thing advertised on Living Social. Although I took a few photography classes while getting my BFA, I’ve pretty much been stuck in auto mode since college. One of the things he suggested at the end of the workshop was to go out and use our new knowledge by taking photo walks. This morning I took my first photo walk.
We got about four inches of fresh snow last night and it warmed things up to a balmy 30 degrees so this morning on my way out the door to take our puppy to the vet, I grabbed my camera. Our vet is located near a state park so we stopped on our way home and discovered…that it’s hard to take a photo walk through fresh snowfall in a state park with a puppy tugging on the leash—snow is like a thrill ride at an amusement park to a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. Not to mention everything was gray and white and brown, and dead. There were no deer prancing the trails or vibrant cardinals eating frozen berries from the trees. Needless to say, the walk was short but here are a few photos from the walk.
