Yesterday I managed to get Ethan's room cleaned up. There was so much junk and clutter in his closet. I ended up with 3 bags of stuff that I dropped off at Goodwill today.There is also 2 whole bags of trash. Insane. His closet became kind of a "catch-all" for us. His room kind of echos now! There was a lot of stuff in there. Ever since they opened the Goodwill store in this town, I have been taking a lot of clothes up there. Its nice to get rid of it without tossing it or having to put on a yard sale. There has been a trend in some of these posts lately. We kind of have a bad habit of setting things aside, putting them away...somewhere. What we should be doing is getting rid of it. So things eventually get piled up where ever we can find a place. But know that we are NO where near the what you see on tv on that show Hoarders. We just stuff closets or shelves and then I get tired of it and get rid of it.
My photography class has been cancelled for tonight. I guess that the instructor is sick. I don't think that it is going to be re-scheduled. It may just be a class that we lose. If this class isn't rescheduled, I will be mad. I mean, there were only 7 classes to begin with. I wanted to learn something from this. So far, I haven't had the chance. So I wanted to show a couple of shots that I had taken for tonight's class. Before the class, I had never shot anything in RAW. I knew about it, but never tried it. He wants us to shoot everything in RAW. So that is what I have been doing. The detail difference is pretty cool. But then once you convert it back to JPEG some of that is lost. At least it was with the software I have. Which, in my head, says that it isn't worth the extra steps. So I don't know. We'll see. I'm not totally sold on RAW. Especially since I am not pro or ever going to go pro. So here are a few. We needed a shot from a "bird's eye view." So I climbed the steps alongside the grain bin, to the top, and snapped a few. I didn't take many because the longer I was up there, the more I began to freak out inside.
Too bad it was such a gloomy day out when I took those. And we also needed a shot from the perspective of "looking through." So I went and snapped these. Although I am not happy with them at all.
Again, another gloomy day. Notice a trend? Yeah. What a gloomy week its been around here.
