It’s Thankful Thursday today over at Six by the Bay. Usually I link up my Thursday grateful photo, however now that I’m trialling just two posts per week with my grateful photo’s it provides an opportunity for a specific Thankful Thursday post.
Today is Anzac Day so it cannot pass without extending a heart-felt thank you to all our servicemen and their families past and present for their courage, dedication and sacrifice in order that we in Australia and New Zealand may live more safely and continue to make the best of the opportunities that our beautiful countries offer us.
This week, I am also feeling particularly thankful for the opportunity to study for a Diploma in Professional Photography.
Photography is something I have become very passionate about. I thoroughly enjoy it. It makes me feel good. It’s like a form of creative, artistic escapism to me. All the usual thoughts in my head (worries, problems, whatever!) all disappear and all my focus is on my subject and finding the right angle and adjusting my camera to get the results I am hoping for. Managing to get a great photograph is such a buzz and something I will never tire of.
I am though only an amateur and I knew there was so much more to learn and so I have enrolled in an on-line course. There are 12 modules and 12 assignments to work through. I am working on the Module 1 assignment at the moment. This course is hard!! When I first read through Module 1 I wondered what on earth I had done. It is all very technical! I thought maybe I was in over my head, but I made a decision to not give in to my doubts and insecurities. I have surprised myself in the past with what I have managed to achieve and I will do it again. Positive thinking people!! I have read and re-read through the module. I have done some further research, and it is all now starting to click into place and I feel quietly confident with forging ahead with my first assignment. Fingers crossed for good marks!
