When I first got my camera I was trying to do the weekend assignments from digital-photography-school.com They were fun and challenging and they made me try different things so it helped me learn what my camera could do. One assignment that totally stumped me was the "Film Noir Photography". I had ideas but no idea how to create the effect. It's frustrating to "see" something in your mind yet have no idea how to create it. Well, I've learned alot over the year and although this isn't perfect, I finally got something that I can say is a start. Maybe I'll be able to move it to the next level over the course of 2011.
