What Do I Need for Class? - For
each class you should bring your camera, owners manual, and
USB thumb drive.
What is a USB thumb drive? - A thumb drive is just
a slang term for for a small portable electronic flash memory
storage device. Here is a link
to a list of them from NewEgg.com they start at $5 plus $1 shipping (a reliable on line
retailer), although you can buy them in any Wal**t or T**g*t.
They come in many shapes and sizes. For this class you only
need one with enough storage for your project photos. About
the smallest you can still buy are 2 gigabyte but as the cost
of storage drops larger units become the new smallest units
at the same price. As of this article 8 gigabyte units are
less than $10. 1 gigabyte of data storage can hold
100s of photos...
Owners Manual? I lost that months ago....Each camera
has its own unique menu and way of operating. This class is
not about how your particular camera works, but how to get
the best results out of it. For a lost manual, most manufacturers
offer user manuals on line from their web sites. Usually these
have too many pages to print, but they are small enough to
fit on your thumb drive along with your photos. If needed
during class I can open the manual on my laptop.
What Kind of Camera is Used in This Class?
- Any digital camera can be used to participate in this class,
however, camera phones are not recommended.
How can I Get Class Updates and Handouts? - To
get current changes to the class schedule, log on to twitter.com
create an account (all that is required is a unique user name
and a valid email address) and find my account "msrichter"
using the find people tool. I post current class status and
new there everyday. Handouts for each class are linked below
as pdf files(as they become available)
