I Learned 5-19-11

I learned that I am longing for a macro. Looks like I know what the next lens on my list will be. Instead of a super cool macro shot…you get this :O)

I also learned how AMAZING you guys are! Seriously! Yesterday I hit 100,000 page views!! This blog has only been around 9 months and each month you blow me away with your comments and support!! Thank you!!!

Now it’s your turn. What did you learn this week?? You know the old saying “You learn something new everyday!” Take pictures of it and share with us!! Some weeks you may learn a photography skill and want critiques. GREAT!! Share and ask for them! If you didn’t learn a new photography skill but something about yourself or life, that is great too! Post a picture and tell us what you learned. Can’t wait to see your pictures and find out what you learned!!

As always
1. Post one photo and tell us what you learned.
2. Link your permalink, not your blog address, check out the I Learned Tab if you need help with this.
3. Attach our button to your post
4. Ask for critiques if you want them and post your settings
5. Leave a comment on 5 other posts
6. Open Thursday 8am – Sunday 8am (Japan time) or Wednesday 6pm – Saturday 6pm (EST)

    I’m dreaming of a macro lens, too. You got a very nice close-up shot without a macro, though! :)

    Ha—I learned that I can’t get the shots I want if I don’t have my camera. Never leave home without it!!

    Love the photo. Sooo pretty. I really am trying to learn this FLASH I’ve got borrowed – HEY I see a “I Learned” for you ;) Think you might put a tutorial on using flash? ;) Though I am trying to use mine for night photos. Its kind of cool

      Wish I could help but I don’t have a flash (just the in-camera one I don’t use). I’ll keep an eye out for a great tutorial on flash though :O) I think I just saw one on http://www.iheartfaces.com not sure if it is a “how to” though! Would love to see some of your photos!

  • I learned (1) that I love feedback and (2) that I’m too hard on myself and (3) there’s a fantastic book that I have to read called Tao of Photography!

    congrats Courtney!!! I would love a macro someday too! This week I learned to overexpose my photos to create a really bright editing style. (Only one pic like that up from this week…still so many to edit!)
