I'm making slow progress. The second unit from the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP) arrived yesterday. This afternoon I pressed on with Lesson Five, bent over the lesson book with the CD playing in the background.
It so happens I am familiar with much of what has been presented in the first four lessons, but I appreciate the methodical and disciplined curriculum thus far. My hope is that I will be forced, not only into learning new things, but into seeing in new ways and into trying new types of photography that don't come as naturally -- as the closeup of lichen or the veins of a leaf.
Building blocks. The review will be over shortly. Reinforcing the foundation's just what I need.
