First reading from class text
The text for this class is the National Audubon Society Guide to Nature Photography; Digital Edition written by Tim Fitzharris. The first assignment was to read the introduction, basic kit, and tripods chapters. It seems like this book will be very helpful, although some of the terminology and specific details on equipment are a little difficult to understand for a beginner so far. Just from the basic kit chapter and the tripod I have found that it is suggesting that the more money you spend, the better your photos will be. I am hoping that the book won't be so equipment oriented in further chapters. The trouble I am having right now is why should I spend money on new equipment if it will take away my opportunities to get outside and play around and take a few pictures?
