I'm in the midst of taking a digital photography summer session course at the Duchess County Community College. I am learning so much, as I am gaining an appreciation for the technical aspects of taking good photographs. I am taking tons of photos; while experiencing much failure and many mistakes. That's the creative process. This is my first experience with shooting raw files, manual focus and tripod usage. This photograph was special, as it was my first time having the cows come over to me. This cow tried to lick my lens!
