SEPTEMBER 15th - DIGITAL BASICS
Learn about your camera and the simple techniques for getting the most out of it.

Session 1 - 9:30-12:00   The first session covers is primarily about the camera. We look at the features and controls and how they work.  It's a machine and this is an "operator's" workshop.

Session 2 - 1:30-4:00 In session two we go more into how to get good shots with your camera, like how to use those controls more creatively.  We'll experiment.  We will also spend some time talking about composition and how to see with a camera.

Be sure to bring your camera so we can play with it.

SEPTEMBER 22nd - LEARNING LIGHTROOM-BEGINNERS

Processing your own photos adds a whole new level of enjoyment. Lightroom allows us to quickly and easily polish our photos and make them look much better than the way they come out of the camera.

Session 1 - 9:30-12:00 - Getting Started
Session One gets us into Lightroom and gets us started on importing, organizing, managing and enhancing our photos.  Photographers produce a lot of photos and it can be difficult to keep them organized.  Lightroom is designed to make file management more efficient.  It is also a powerful editing tool that helps us to improve the shots we get out of our cameras. We will walk through the whole process from getting our photos into Lightroom to doing quick and easy edits that make your shots look just smashing.

Session 2 - 1:30-4:00 - Developing Your Photos
Lightroom's photo developing tools enable us to fine tune and customize our work.   These tools are easy to use once you know your way around and a lot of fun.  In the afternoon session we go through the photo enhancement tools as well as geotagging and various outputs including printing, slide shows and web galleries. It can be pretty addicting once you get started.

Bring your laptop and some photos to work on.
