January 24th

First Class! I've been meaning to, planning to, and thinking about taking a digital photo course for about 10 years. I plan to do all the necessary research and purchase a camera this week, before the next class. I am really excited to begin a new method of creating and playing with images---it's been four years since I've spent any time at all in a darkroom. I miss it---the alchemical lair. I don't miss the poisonous chemicals, however. Also, after several years working in darkrooms, I began to get the sinking feeling that life in the daylight, outer world was passing me by. This is a big shift for me, the jump to digital medium---and also far overdue.
