ECOO Conference 2014 - Digital Photography 101 Session

Join me at the ECOO Conference 2014 on Thursday, November 6 at 12:00 p.m. in the Peller Estates Ballroom B for my session entitled "Digital Photography 101".

Following is the session description:
Are you taking part in the photowalk or do you have a general interest in photography? Why not join me to learn how to adjust your camera to take that “perfect” picture, how to transfer your photos to your computer, how to rename and tag your photos so you can easily search for them, how to digitally process your photos, how to back them up so you never lose them, and how to edit your photos on your smartphone, regardless of what camera you used to take them. 
In this introductory session I hope to explore all these topics and, if time permits, open the floor to questions and/or sharing of tips and techniques from others. 
This session will be perfect for anyone just getting started in photography and wants to learn the basics of a typical photography workflow -- from taking the pictures all the way through processing and backing up. I'll also be sure to provide some tips for those taking part in the photowalk that evening, from tripod use to getting the right exposure.

I hope to see you there!
