misc_none 1:00 PM  -  4:00 PM Digital Photography for Beginners Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Professional photographer & photojournalist Len Cook shares his 25+ years of teaching experience in this workshop:

Are you intimidated by the complexity of your new (OR old) camera? In this class we will discuss the meaning of many of the most important symbols and controls and when they are useful to the curious photographer. For more experienced photographers we can answer questions about features you haven't used yet on your camera, but want to know how and when.

We'll define camera controls in terms of the benefits they bring to taking better photos. We'll also discuss some camera settings and techniques useful for casual shooting, parties, and events. Want brighter, darker, or sharper pictures? Are you missing shots because your camera didn't take the photo when you wanted?  We'll demonstrate remedies.

We'll cover these concepts and controls: exposure compensation, aperture, shutter, ISO, M, A, S, P, Av, Tv, histogram, autofocus vs. manual focus, Full Auto mode vs. Program mode, soft focus backgrounds, and built-in flash.

Registration is required. Sign up at the Information Desk, call (510) 795-2627 x7 when the library is open, or email Barbara at btelford-ishida@aclibrary.org.

misc_none 6:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Lawyer in the Library Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Attorney George Derieg offers 15 minute free consultation and referrals on a wide variety of issues including estate planning, family, and criminal law. He does not cover landlord tenant disputes or foreclosures.

To make an appointment, please call (510) 795-2627 x7 when the library is open. If you are not going to be able to make your appointment, please call to cancel it.

The purpose of the consultation is to determine whether or not you have a legal problem and to provide guidance on how you might be able to solve your legal problem rather than for the attorney to provide in-depth legal analysis or advice. There is no continuing attorney/client relationship formed by your meeting with a volunteer attorney, but your discussion with the attorney will be confidential.

misc_none 1:00 PM  -  4:00 PM Digital Photography: Beyond the Basics Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Professional photographer & photojournalist Len Cook shares his 25+ years of teaching experience in this workshop:

Let’s look at “success multipliers” in photography. What’s in a picture? What’s in a good picture? Finally, what’s in your pictures? It’s called “content!"

Camera tools assist in creating and controlling the content in your photos. Better photographers look “under the hood” at the controls of their cameras to create better photo content. Better photographers also take advantage of the rich aesthetic tools of design and composition. This class will explore these "success multipliers" found in camera menus and in traditional composition concepts.

Outside the cameras we will look at some basic but highly useful composition concepts like the rule of thirds, leading lines, balance, negative space, use of blur in depth of field, and perspective/forced perspective.

Inside the cameras we will look at automatic exposure bracketing, automatic white balance bracketing, custom white balance, time exposures, uses of the self-timer, shutter speed and aperture as tools to control blur in photos, and an introduction to the practice of HDR, or High Dynamic Range photography.

Registration is required. Sign up at the Information Desk, call (510) 795-2627 x7 when the library is open, or email Barbara at btelford-ishida@aclibrary.org.
