For the Digital SLR user we will discuss the types and uses of the many lenses that can be used. (Although aimed at the DSLR user many Advanced Digital Camera users will be able to benefit from an understanding of what each lens capability can do for their photography.)

Most beneficial to all photographers, whether beginner or experienced, will an overview of exposure and how the different elements that make up exposure can be used to improve and add creativity to your photography. Added to this discussion on the elements of good exposure will be an extensive overview of composition. Good composition is what makes a well exposed photograph something more and something that will set apart your photos from others.

Finally we will go over several programs that are designed to help you organize your photographs. The advantage of digital photography is that we can take photographs to enjoy without excessive expense to have them all printed. The penalty is that we all have more digital photos than we can keep track of unless we make the extra effort. These programs will help you organize and manage your digital photo library.
