At this Sunday, July 27, meeting, we'll wrap-up the John Greengo "10-week Digital Photography Course". I will have copies of the complete 10 week series available for you on a flash drive. I noticed several of you trying to keep up with everything being presented. (Believe me, I thought there was lots of wonderful information was packed into these.) So I'm in hopes that having all this on a flash drive will help.

You must have attended some of the previous sessions to be eligible as I only have 11 flash drives to distribute. If you did attend, but won't be able to make this meeting (I think this is our last meeting for this series)...and you want one of these, please contact me directly so I can hold one for you. Email me at: [masked] . Below is a listing of everything we covered.

This group will continue after this Sunday's meeting, but I'm not sure what Sundaresh has lined up for you, i.e. another video or series, some hands on, take a break and pick up later...just not sure. So... Would you please let me/him know what you would like as we welcome your ideas for the classes.


Camera Basics:

We're off to a great start...using the John Greengo Series, which consists of a multi-week video program. We will stretch this over several months and when we finish with the series, we'll see where we are as far as a group and what the needs are.

Videos last approximately an hour; then we'll open for Q&A. Don't be afraid to ask questions...

Camera Basics is not just for "newbies", but for anyone who feels they have never mastered the basics, or feel uncomfortable, or struggling with how much they know...

Sundaresh Ramanathan, who many of you know, will lead the discussion. The meetings will consist of both video and hands on.

Bring your camera and manual. Any type camera is ok. Between now/then, attempt to read and understand your manual best you can.

Sundaresh developed a Facebook website, "Camera Basics", just for members of this focus group" so you will have a project to work on after class.

Assignments, photos, discussions re this class only will be posted on this site so you can have everything you need in one location. (Please do continue to view our other sites, but this site will be specific to this focus group only.)



Below is the 2009 schedule Sundaresh had, and will be the one we'll use:
