I had my first photography lesson today. It was two hours of fabulous information that almost made me feel silly for not having taken a class sooner. My instructor was fantastic. Two hours of teaching and I knew that it was just a scratch off the tip of the iceberg of her knowledge. There is a lot of practice in my future to really integrate what she taught me.

After the lesson, I headed over to get my eyes checked. This office still uses that lovely puff of air. It is hard to keep your head in position, much less not blink. The verdict: I could get a pair of glasses to help correct the small deficits. She suggested that I use them when I feel the fatigue and soreness coming on. An overuse injury for my eyes! I am reading the book suggested by the lovely Margarita on my Fuzzy Vision post: “Take Off Your Glasses And See: A Mind/Body Approach to Expanding Your Eyesight and Insight” by Jacob Liberman, O.D., PhD. I am only a few pages in but it already looks to be very interesting. Hopefully I will not need my bifocals for long! The doctor was nice enough not to call them bifocals. She just gently let me know that I could use some correction for near and far.
