Click the title to view the entire article.

Upcoming seminar – basic to intermediate digital photography. Some from the first seminar have requested the conversation continue.

Understanding digital photography is a bit more complex than you might think. Among other things you may be in charge of your images in ways you never considered. Knowing how to use the camera settings and tools is a step in the right direction.


Primary among good digital capture is understanding the difference between raw and jpg capture. Do you know how the jpg style settings in your camera can influence how you expose a raw file? What does the histogram actually represent and how can you use it to get the best capture in terms of exposure?

Former film shooters make a few mistakes in terms of exposure and depth of field considerations. At what point is highlight exposure protection important? Can you really just increase the exposure in post processing to gain shadow detail?

How do small aperture settings influence depth of field with regard to overall image clarity? How does the sensor size influence how you decide the best aperture? Where can you go to get good technical information about digital capture considering the two youtube videos you just watched contradicted each other?

Digital Photography II will answer those questions and more. The date is Saturday, October 26th, 2019. The program starts at 9:30 a.m. when the library doors open and will run until about 12:30. Cost is $40 per person. Please bring your camera and manual to the program.
