    *Digital Photography 101 at Virginia

    Oct 16th, 2014 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    Event Location: Virginia Public Library

    Price: Free

    Brian will present a three hour hands-on beginning photography workshop about using your digital camera and editing your photos. Bring your camera (compact or dSLR), camera manual, a tripod (if you have one) and other accessories to learn how to use your camera’s features to improve the pictures you take.  Make sure your batteries are charged and you have plenty of memory because the group is going to explore the library inside and outside (weather permitting) to practice taking photos while also learning to use light effectively and other artistic elements, such as composition, leading lines, rule of 3rds, etc. to improve your images.

    The last part of the workshop will be about downloading pictures, organizing your files, and using software to optimize and resize images. Brian’s favorite program to use is Photoshop CS6, but other free or inexpensive computer programs with which you can start will also be demonstrated, such as GIMP (free, www.gimp.org) and Photoshop Elements (around $100, www.adobe.com.) Brian will show you how to edit your pictures to get better photos and have fun doing it!
