In June, I took a travel photography course at the Berkeley Public Library. The original focus of the class was travel photography but it became more of a photography 101 course which better served the needs of the students. I took this course for two reasons: You can always learn something new and to support a friend whom I encouraged to take the course. We met for four Saturdays in June and it was a very imformative class. I was able to learn new ways of using my DSLR (digital single lens relflex) as well as my point and shoot cameras.
The photo mosiac above was created using Picasa. After our third class, we went to the Berkeley Farmer’s Market on a photo stroll. The goal of this assignment was to take photos of things that caught our eye including being able to ask people to take photos of them. It was fun and people were nice about having their photo taken. For our final class, we did show and tell, showing the photos from the previous week’s assignment. In addition, I brought in some of my jazz photography to show the class.
Special thanks to Andrienne Miller, our photography instructor and Michelle McKenzie, Berkeley Public Library Librarian.
