New Woodstock An introductory digital photography class will be taught by expert photographer Jerry Weimar from 9 a.m. to noon (with a 15-minute break) Saturdays in March at the New Woodstock Free Library. The class is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is not required. The library is located at 2106 Main Street (Route 13) in New Woodstock.
Each class stands on its own, so people are free to attend only the classes that are of interest:
March 1 — How Your Camera Works: a hands-on intro to exposure and camera controls, using whatever cameras you bring to class
March 8 — How to Compose a Good Photograph: an examples-based class to help you “see” a good photograph before you press the shutter
March 15 — Question and Answer/ Individual Help: Session No. 1 at 9 a.m.: Point and Shoot Cameras. Session No. 2 at 10:30 a.m.: Digital SLR Cameras.
March 22 — How to Digitally Enhance Your Photographs: an intro to Adobe Photoshop Elements, which is an inexpensive and popular software package. May also touch on Corel Paintshop Pro, as a competitive alternative. This class is for everyone.
March 29 — How to Process “Raw” Images: An intro to using Adobe Lightroom to process “raw” images. This class is for the serious enthusiast that wants the most from her images.
