Get the most out of your camera by joining our experienced photographers and hearing their tips and tricks. Whether you have a standard website, a blog, or a wiki, text-only just won’t cut it anymore. Come learn all you need to know to create, edit, and add images to your website, market your library’s events, and how to take advantage of Creative Commons licensing to use others’ images on your site. This workshop not only covers licensing options, tips on choosing a digital camera, taking photos in your library, and managing your images, it also helps you take your digital images to the next level. Whether you have a pocket-sized, “point-and-shoot” camera or an expensive digital SLR, learn how to capture a great photo every time by understanding how camera exposure and existing light work together; how to manage hundreds of images effectively; and how to gather tips and tricks for processing your photos on your computer, including correcting white balance, working with tone curves and contrast, saving the right image size for the job, and basic portrait touch-ups. Experienced picture-takers already familiar with their cameras and with downloading images to their computers will get the most out of this workshop.
