I’m feeling bad. I feel like I’m starting to forget about my blog and my photography.
Life over the last few days has been busy. Despite not putting out a regular blog post, I’ve still been doing a considerable amount of writing. Between my creative writing project, my latest essay for my English course, and things seeing a slight uptick at work, I have been writing a lot.
In addition to the writing, I’ve been continuing my work through my Photoshop and Photography Courses. I’m still very early in the Photoshop course, but I’m already starting to learn skills that will carry me into the future. The last component we just worked on was photo retouching. I have a long ways to go, but I’m already impressed with some of the touch ups I am able to do.
The photography course is starting to get into less familiar territory, which is good, because it means I’m actually starting to learn some more advanced stuff. I just need to find the time to put what I’m planning into practise.
I’m thinking that as long as the weather is good this weekend I will have an opportunity to do some shooting. Lynn and I are planning a trip down to Drumheller for the day, so at least one of the camera bags will be coming with me so I can stop and get some shots.
I’m happy with how productive I have been. I’m waking up each day with focus and goals for the day. I’m learning a lot, and I’m feeling better than I have in a long time. The biggest thing that concerns me right now is how long I can keep this pace up. I know I cycle. I know that what goes up will eventually come down, and I need to make sure I have a plan in place to deal with it when it happens.
Still, for the moment I’m not going to look for trouble. I have plenty to keep me going, and like I say, I am feeling well.
