Personal Digital Photography
By Richard Trueman
Film has been replaced, but Photography persists. The cameras have changed and because of the home computer, the whole process of developing, presenting, and archiving has become “in home” and almost immediate.
If you are new to all this then the first section is for you.
If you want to get more of your pictures correct or to have more power, then the second session is for you.
If you are a serious amateur and want to spend more time with acquainting yourself with the professional tools of photography, then session three is for you.
Regardless of the session or sessions you attend, your questions will be answered, hands on help will be facilitated and demonstrations will be given.
