12 Days of Christmas Photography Course

I've signed up for a photo course with Cheryl Johnson called the 12 days of Christmas.

I am really looking forward to this and hope to get some new ideas for Christmas photos, as I've not got any really good ones. They always seem to be too busy or have too many colours, so this year fingers crossed, I will have something a bit more inspiring to remember the year by and to put in my scrapbooks.

But up first is a self portrait!! HEEEELLLPPPP! I take the photos, so I don't have to be in them. I mean, that's the whole point, so this is well outside my comfort zone. It also brings home the fact that I have absolutely no camera skills despite my lovely Nikon. I just point and shoot.

To my shame, I didn't even know how to work the self-timer, but now I do. So if I get nothing else out of this course (and I'm sure that isn't the case, having seen CJs photos, surely something will rub off on me!) at least I can take a photo using the timer. Thank you CJ, for getting me off my backside and finding out something new about my camera.

As for the self portrait - well, watch this space. It's not done yet!
