3 down - 19 to go!

wow.  march flew.
here's the ol' update on the 2010 goals.
goals with progress made:

learn french well enough to have an entire conversation with my grandma & apply for bilingual jobs
still working on this in france, of course.
this month in class i've been learning the imperatif and subjunctif verb tenses.  - how to give orders and how to speak in a tense that my french students say they never use - whoo hoo!  also learned some expressions like "it's raining like a pissing cow."  the equivalent of raining cats & dogs.

master the use of photographic flash/5 portfolio building preplanned photoshoots
though neither of these is near complete i did get to do a little beach shoot with some friends in march.
practice is what i need - i find i have difficulty telling 'models' what to do, how to pose, etc.
i used a little bit of flash to balance the sun in some shots - others are natural light or i used a reflector disc to bounce the light back. (view more here)

organize my harddrives
 this still needs another couple of hours - wow there are a lot of old files! ha ha.

 make a facebook fan page for my photography
another one that i can cross off!
and so ~ if you'd like to become a fan ~ i'd love it!
hopefully this will come in handy as i apply for jobs soon-ish :)

and a "hello!" to everyone now following.  i'm truly grateful.
looking forward to getting to know you.
