WEEK ONE –

Week one was an introduction and overview, to the world of Digital Photography. It is not just about learning how to use your camera, but also the various work-flow procedures of SHOOT – DOWNLOAD – CULL- BACKUP – FILE – EDIT – SHARE. Digital Photography is an exciting world but unless you can control your camera and your images you will never be able to easily share your photos with others. Each week we will learn some new aspects of the process.

HOMEWORK –

This week you are to take a few photos on any topic you like and bring your best one or two photos to the class to discuss at the beginning of the lesson. I want you to practice dragging your images onto a pen drive, take them to a photo kiosk and learn to use a kiosk.
