The Osher Institute is offering The Basics of Digital Photography and Photo Editing in fall quarter 2013. You will learn to master the basic mechanics of the camera, use a computer to store your images, edit the successful ones, improve on others, and share your photos through email, web galleries, prints, and books. Instruction addresses the most common kinds of photographs: portraits, candid shots, landscapes, and indoors with artificial light. The course includes computer lab, group photo shoots, and assignments to master each of the ideas introduced in class: content and the design, and technique of image-making.
Once you’ve perfected your photos, you can upload them to your favorite social media site, as some of our Osher members learned to in our Internet Catch-Up for Boomers and Above course. For those of you who missed it, the class was featured in an NBS news story. You can find it on the NBC site here or on You Tube here.
