The pair on the left I made with a piece of patterned glass on the bottom, a piece of clear glass in the middle and some blue "spaghetti" glass glued on top. They turned out a little heavier than I would have liked but cute none the less.
For the last few months I have been doing some serious research on purchasing a new camera and a couple of weeks ago we bought a Nikon D5100. It's our first DSLR camera so needless to say we have no idea what we're doing. The learning continued on Thursday night with the hubby and I taking an Intro to DSLR class offered at National Camera Exchange. Since we bought the camera through them, we get the 3 part class for free. We had no idea what to expect out of this class since it was free and all. We weren't even 10 minutes in and I knew we were going to leave even more excited to come back for the next class. They covered all the basics about how to go from taking a picture to taking a photograph by using things like point of focus, ISO, shutter speed and aperture. I've been snapping pics like crazy since we bought the camera and already I can tell a huge difference since taking the class. There's no way I could take pics like these with our little point and shoot.
