Are You New to Your Camera?


Did you get a new camera for Christmas? Is it your first digital camera, or is this your second or even a third one? Even if your camera is not that new, are you making the most of its capabilities? If your answer to any of these questions is “yes”, you should consider taking a course devoted to how to use your camera.

The second section of my camera class at the South Bay Adult School, begins Wednesday, February 15th. To find out more about this class, CLICK HERE.  To register for the class, you can go to the South Bay Adult School’s website.

Due to the several holidays in January and February, I am teaching only one camera class at Torrance this term. This class starts in about a week, on Monday, January 23rd. To find out more about it, CLICK HERE, and scroll down. You can register for the class by going to the Torrance Adult School website. In fact, this is a good term to take the class. Normally the class is five, or on occasion six 2-1/2 hour sessions. However, this term there are seven sessions, which means more instruction time for the same price. If you plan to sign up for the class, you will need to do so the very first part of this week.

Remember, the classes at both schools cover the compact camera models, as well as more advanced models, including digital SLRs.

A Cold Winter is Coming


Winter term classes start at the South Bay Adult School, Torrance and PV NET next week. Torrance had to  cancel three of the classes already. South Bay Adult School will no doubt cancel both classes that were due to start next week unless there are some last minute registrations. All of the cancellations are due to low enrollment.

If you have any comments regarding how the current classes I teach can be improved, or ideas/suggestions for future classes, please leave a comment. I have to submit classes I would like to teach this spring in a week or two at the very latest. Totally new classes will not be possible until the Fall Term. However, changes in scope, focus, and approach to existing classes can often be accomplished rather quickly. So please let me knew your ideas.

Thank you.

Spring Term Digital Photo Class Schedule


I have just learned what my class schedule will be for the spring term at the South Bay Adult School in Redondo Beach, CA and the Torrance Griffith Adult Center. I have posted the schedule and my description of the courses on my web site at www.donstouder.com. So, if you live in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, you may want to take a look. We use Photoshop Elements in all of my classes. Registration at both schools should start in a couple of weeks or so.

Please Note: I was told by a student that registration for the spring term at the Griffith Adult Center begins early Tuesday morning, February 12th. The camera classes fill up fast. You may want to call Griffith to confirm this.

I also have an email distribution list for each school that I use to inform students of my teaching schedule for the upcoming term. If you would like to be added to the list, email me at donstouder@ca.rr.com and I will be glad to add you to the list. Since I keep separate lists for each school, please let me know what school you are interested in. I only send out two to three emails per semester, and I use the “blind courtesy copy”, so that no one else on the list sees your email address.

Until next time,

Don
