Do you have an artistic fire burning in you? Maybe you have a nice new DSLR camera that someone in your family gave you, and it has just been sitting on your shelf for the past year. Or maybe you own a point-and-shoot camera that you love taking pictures with at family and friend gatherings. Or perhaps you simply use your cell phone to capture the world around you.
The Library staff supports your artistic endeavors. On Tuesday, October 23, we launched a new class called the Digital Photography Workshop at the Reisterstown Road Branch.
Customers and staff explored the ins and outs of photography—from choosing the right camera, creating the right composition, editing, preservation, storage, and publication. We also moved outside the classroom and went on a neighborhood walk, during which we captured the world around us and found interesting subjects for the camera.
Check out some of the photos we took on our walk:
If you have an interest in taking on photography—either as a hobby or as a serious interest—please let us know in a comment on this blog post: we'd like to hold more of these classes in the future. If you want to learn about computer photo editing and storage, or attend other computer classes (such as Microsoft Word, Keyboarding, or the Internet) check out the Enoch Pratt Free Library's class schedule. The next "Photo Editing, Sharing and Storage class" taught by one of our librarians, Patrick, will be held December 6th from 10 am to 12 pm.
Remember: All the classes are free! Call and register today.
