Getting the Most from your Digital Camera/Phone/I-Pad

Many people feel that they cannot create a great image due to the fact they only have a so called point and shoot camera, telephone or I-Pad. Fred Bird, owner of Fred Bird Photography in Ellington, CT, will present "Getting the Most from your Point and Shoot Digital Camera". He will cover important concepts such as composition, lighting, and how to make corrections for density and color. Attendees will also learn where to find some of the simple settings in the point and shoot camera that will make a difference in the images you capture. For more information about Fred, please visit his website at www.fredbirdphotography.com.

If you wish to have help with your individual camera, be sure to bring the camera or telephone instruction book. The instruction book is important as it provides a starting point in the location of controls in your camera.

Get healthy in the New Year and meet Tolland resident and local author Dr. Cassandra Forsythe as she presents her new book Prevention's No Bloat Diet: 50 Low Fodmap Recipes to Flatten Your Tummy, Soothe Your Gut, and Relieve IBS (Rodale, 2018 - release date December 25, 2018). 

Dr. Forsythe has struggled with gastrointestinal issues ever since she can remember, trying every medication, treatment, and plan she could find. Finally she discovered the low FODMAP diet - and it completely changed her life. FODMAPs are a group of specific short-chain carbohydrates that can be hiding in both healthy and unhealthy foods such as cherries, some nuts, and garlic, and wreck havoc on digestive systems of people who are sensitive to or intolerant of them. The No Bloat Diet is the ultimate guide to taking back your life and health. Dr. Forsythe has written /contributed to 3 other health and diet books.
