This Saturday I decided I wanted to spend some time on another hobby of mine. I took photography class in high school and for as long as I can remember, I've loved taking pictures. For Christmas, the hubs surprised me with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i!! No more point-and-shoot for me! It happens that I had also seen a DSLR Photography Class deal on LivingSocial, so I signed up immediately. Class was about three weeks ago and it was great! It was a great refresher on aperture, ISO, shutter speed and I left feeling comfortable taking my camera off auto. I also knew I would need to practice.
Ben wanted to continue his birthday weekend, so we made lunch plans at one of our favorite wine & cheese bars, Cheesetique. We headed to the Del Ray location, which is a cute little area, so I left with my camera in tow. We did some wine tasting, ate some lunch, did some more wine tasting thanks to a newly discovered wine shop, Planet Wine. And I took some pictures. I'm okay with them, considering I'm still in practice mode and it's nice to know I have the RAW files for a day when I feel brave enough to tackle editing.
