Learn More About Your Digital Camera in 2012

Holiday Flower

Did you get a new camera for Christmas? Do you know someone who did? If you live in the Missoula, Montana, area, I have several options for learning to use your camera and photo editing software effectively.

Rock River View

The first are classes offered through The Lifelong Learning Center. Learn basic, intermediate or advanced camera controls as well as how to take better photos of winter scenes, close-ups and your favorite people. I'm also teaching two classes about making black and white images, both in camera and with photo editing software. For all the details, see my web site.

Christmas Geese

In addition, I'm presenting two classes at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. First up on January 17 is a FREE lecture on choosing a photo editing program. I'll be demonstrating the basic features of Picasa, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom and Photoshop. The talk begins at 7pm at 210 N. Higgins. Come early for a seat.

The second is a weekend course on using Photoshop Elements 10 on February 25-26. Using your own laptop, you'll learn how to organize, edit and share your favorite images. If you are using an earlier version of Photoshop Elements, most of the techniques will apply. And you can test Photoshop Elements 10 for free from Adobe. To register visit the RMSP web site.
