Week 6

Week 6 -Intro to Digital Photography

Week 6 Presentation is Everything

Our last week  🙁

I hope you enjoyed our class as much as I did.  Please come back here for more articles, tips and techniques.  I try to post something new at least once a week -usually over the weekend. I do have a day job…

This week was devoted to what we do with the pictures after they are taken.

Week 6 Review


  • On the computer
  • email
  • Web
  • On the wall
  • Screen Resolution

File sizing for:

  • Prints
  • Digital Frames
  • Computer screens

We discussed ways of printing your photographs:

  • Printing services
  • To do it yourself –or not to do it yourself

We also discussed Post Production:

  • Editing
  • Cropping

And File maintenance:

  • Come up with a method now before you have thousands of picture files to search.
  • There are as many methods as there are photographers.
  • Ron’s Tried and True method: Set up folders using a date code –see class notes for details.
  • Never edit the original files, only copies of the file.

Backing up your files: It’s not IF your computer fails, it’s WHEN!

Discover your style and develop it. Once you are comfortable with your style, branch out of your comfort zone to keep your creativity growing.

Most Importantly HAVE FUN!
