I pulled out my camera and played with some of the settings and located the B&W setting! So, I took a bunch and I just love the look of black and white. I think that we live in color, so black and white is something new and different.
I need to learn more about cutting down on the shadows and am excited about the upcoming photography classes that I am going to take. I am not loving the instructor, but he is the only one teaching around here so he is what I have to work with. I have friends who are professional photographers, but I don't want to ask them for help. I don't want them to think that I am taking advantage of them, I will learn what I can from this guy, the Internet and from books!
