Photo class with Joe Decker and friends

Yesterday I took a great photography class taught by joedecker, along with the_ogre, gerardp, lrc, and zahraa.

Overall a very enjoyable and educational experience (more photos here). Being a serious photographer is certainly a challenge. So many things to keep track of - aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. - plus holding a camera with a two-pound lens attached for over an hour, changing lenses quickly without dropping or scratching them, and other things I'm not used to. Though this hobby will not be kind on my time or budget, I am glad I adopted it.
