INSTRUCTOR: Dick Malone

You will learn new Tips and Tricks to get better pictures with your digital (Point and Shoot) camera. These cameras have lots of built-in intelligence, but are not able to rival digital SLRs. You will learn to minimize your camera’s disadvantages, while keeping the portability that allows you to get shots that you would otherwise miss. After each class, you’ll be given “homework” exercises to share at the next class. Participants should be familiar with their own camera, including reading your camera’s manual before class starts.
