Digital-age photography class offered
Family photos may no longer involve thick, shelf-hogging albums or boxes of loose prints but digital photography still requires organization and care.
The Hayes Presidential Center offers a new class to help 21st-century amateur photographers manage their hobby. Photos & Genealogy takes place 9:30 a.m.-NOON on Saturday, March 9 in the Hayes Library. The Centers Head of Photographic Resources Gilbert Gonzalez is instructor for the class, which is sponsored by RootsMagic Inc. Cost is $10/adults and $5/students through high school. Pre-registration, is required. Call 419-332-2081, ext. 231 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photos & Genealogy provides lessons that are applicable to both old and new photographic methods. Gonzalez offers instruction on
- how to identify and preserve early photographic print
- the correct way to scan a photograph
- the anatomy of a digital image
- how to edit your photos online for free
- methods for organizing all of your digital images
Due to the varied topics covered, class time is 2 ½ hours. Participants also will receive handouts on topics covered during class and will have time to ask questions.
Gonzalez not only cares for the Hayes Presidential Centers photographic collections which include examples of all types of photographic processes but also is a professional photographer. He teaches photography and the use of digital photo-editing programs like Photoshop at Terra State Community College.
