yeah. so far. not getting it.

 remember when i told you that the hubs got me a new camera?
no?  {here}
 since then, I've read 5 {yes, 5} books on photography
well, 3 on photography and 2 on my specific camera model.
am i any smarter? nope. it doesn't feel like I've absorbed one bit.

a few weeks ago bestie told me about a 12 week online class she was following
i downloaded all the lessons and printed them out
made a cute little binder with tabs and everything.
I was so excited that while I was making the binder, I read all the lessons.
they look amazing and I can't wait to learn and implement everything.

::getting to the point::

so this morning
i'm out in our front yard taking pictures of this guy... my stationary object
and trying to learn how to set my ISO and my aperture and my f-stop..ect.ect.ect.

then i hear a buzzing sound over my head
i stand up and see this guy

i look over and see this one peaking out at me

before you know it i have abandoned my stationary object
and started taking pictures of all the bugs pollinating

then i feel my foot burning and i look down and realize
that i'm standing in the middle of an ant bed

i should have stuck to my stationary object.
