I’m gonna let you in on a little secret: I’m a researcher.
Literally. In a past life, I did research for a living. Grad school was grueling in so many ways, but the thrill of digging in to a new topic or book was undeniable. I loved the digging. The other stuff, not so much. But I love to do research.
This training has carried forward into all areas of my life. Last week, I wanted to make a red velvet cake. Some people might just Google it and print out the first recipe that comes up. But not this girl. Noooooo. I want to see at least three recipes, plus a blog post or two about red velvet cakes and a slew of photos. And then I want to compare those recipes to the one I found in a cookbook and the one I got from a friend. And, and, and…
You can see how it gets a bit out of control.
Obviously, I’ m totally jazzed about the new camera thing. But it’s dangerous. I’ve been in research mode since I got it. And the research will continue–in earnest!–but I also need to USE THE CAMERA.
So, without further ado:
I’m already a few days behind, so I’ll try to play catch-up over the course of the next few days. And if all goes well, maybe I’ll tackle another challenge in March.
I’m also going to watch a few awesome tutorials from Lynda.com. More on this later…
Here we go!
