Hope you had a great week.  I am now up to four students for my class!  We shall see.  I busy revising the Basics course and building the Beyond Basics course.  In addition I will be taking a ARC CPR course, on Monday.  It seems I have no problem staying busy!!  
Want to pass this photo out of the past to you.  Daizsa is now a 16 year old young lady, who is a fierce softball and soccer player!  We were all at the Cyber Sub Cafe having a great time.

Take Care

Photographic Thoughts
Volume II
September 30, 2013
By Paul Calkins © 2013
I have covered many topics in Photographic Thoughts.  Photography in the digital age has seen spectacular technical advances.  It is expected that very sophisticated photographic capabilities will soon be incorporated into a smart phones and glasses.  In addition it has been reported that more than 350 million photos are uploaded every day to Facebook.  The raw data on the image data bases, point to the simple fact that we the people like to photograph our selves, others, and beloved pets. We take out our cell phones, and point and shoot cameras and blaze away.  This type of expression is very spontaneous, but somehow misses the mark on what photography is truly about.  Photography is an expression of your vision.  You see a subject, and know how you want it to look and then go about capturing that moment.  This sounds so easy, but it requires thought, and feeling about what it is that you are trying to convey to your viewer.  You the photographer want to show your viewer the sense of "Wow" that you felt as you captured that image.   So I wish you all great journeys in the pursuit and expression of your photographic visions.

Thanks for listening.
