Advanced Digital Camera Class Register Now!


Tomorrow is the last day to enroll in the Advanced Digital Camera class I will be teaching at the South Bay Adult School. The five-week class starts Monday, April 29th.

Using Your Advanced or Digital SLR Camera

This class is for those who want to learn how to use their digital SLR camera or other advanced camera that allows the user to manually set the shutter speed and aperture. The class will teach you how to use your camera in its manual mode and take advantage of its advanced features. It is a hands-on course working with your camera. Each class session consists of taking a series of photos and then reviewing the results on the computer. It proceeds from using your camera in the automatic mode to manually setting the individual controls of your camera.

Mondays 5:00-7:00 pm, beginning April 29, 2013 (5 Meetings)

Off Topic


Normally, I post articles about something related to digital photography or video making. But this post is different.

If you live in or near the South Bay area of Los Angeles, and you like the music of Bob Dylan, you need to come and thoroughly enjoy yourself  at the 23rd Annual Bob Dylanfest in Torrance.

This annual event is hosted by two talented local singer songwriters, Andy Hill and Renee Safier backed by their band, Hard Rain. This all day festival generally features over fifty artists singing songs from Dylan’s huge collection of work, with no song repeated.

This year the almost eight hour festival is on the Torino Plaza at the Torrance Cultural Center on May 5th. Click on the link below to find out more about this great event.

PVNET Movie Maker Video Editing Class–April 19th


I will be teaching a basic video editing course using Microsoft’s  for PVNET beginning April 19th.

Video Editing Using Microsoft’s Movie Maker

Are you finding that you are taking more and more videos with your camera or smart phone? Would you like to combine these videos into a multi-media presentation, including menus and special effects that you can share with family and friends? Or do you just want to learn about video editing? If so, this class may be for you.

In this course you will learn how to use Microsoft’s free Movie Maker to edit and enhance your videos. You will learn how to import, enhance, create, and ultimately share your multi-media presentations. Your presentations will include photos, video clips along with background music. You will learn how to share the presentation on a DVD and upload it to YouTube or other sites.

You may bring in your laptop and work with your own media. Or if you do not have a laptop, you can use one of PV NET’s computers to work with your own pictures and video clips using media loaded on the computers.
