I wouldn't be lying if I said I am pretty much bricking it about starting college tomorrow! I AM really excited and I AM so looking forward to really getting to know my camera, composition, lighting, developing my skills sets etc but I have to admit I am nervous.
Just the whole idea of studying again... I'm fast approaching 30 years of age, it's been a while. Don't get me wrong I work in an industry where I constantly have to update my skill sets but I am in an environment I have known for years.... This course is going to actual college...I'm going to be a proper student again.
What will the rest of the class be like, what will the lecturer be like? Will I be crap?! I've invested some substantial money into it, I hope it doesn't disappoint me either!
Have I over-estimated myself skipping level 1 and going straight onto level 2? How talented will my peers be? And as my best friend Justine would probably say "what are you going to wear?"
Silly insecurities aside, I am super excited! I have a feeling over the next few weeks my kit wish list is going to expand somewhat beyond a Kelly Moore camera bag and Canon 430EX flash! Good job I am working hard in my day job so I can save and spend for new toys! It will be good to meet other budding togs too... Maybe even make some new friends along they way.
This is the start of it all isn't it? The leap of faith into a new world, I chance to use my creativity, to seize the day "carp diem".
