Digital Photography -- Ed Post
 
Back up your pictures. Back. Them. UP!! Because, the hard drive you have them on now will someday die and take all of your photos with it.
 
Ed discussed the ins and outs of taking good quality digital photos. Digital cameras have built-in light meters which are designed to produce a medium tone to pictures, not bright whites or deep black color. You need to manually adjust the light meter setting on your camera in order to get the proper whites and blacks.
 
One of the biggest tissues with digital photos is storage. Photo files can be large. Be selective and manage the number of photos you have taken and are storing.
 
 
Morning members also received a presentation from David Walters with the Board of Light and Power
