Digital Photography Winter 2018 Session
Starts Jan 23

This interest group will hold a series of informal “get-togethers” to provide attendees with new photographic skills as well as an incentive to improve through practice.  All skill levels are welcome.  The only requirements are a digital camera and a willingness to experiment.  The content will focus on  photography aesthetics, and will include basic technical instruction, plus many opportunities to practice.

This Winter Session we will focus on digital editing and discuss composition from a practical perspective using photographs taken primarily in and around Calgary as examples. Digital photographs can be significantly enhanced through some basic editing methods. Photography is mostly about the physical object or subject that interests you, and the many ways of approaching and capturing it. Discussions will include the principles of “Balance”, “Leading Lines”, “Contrast”, “Depth of Field” and several other approaches. This winter session will be held main indoors, and the discussion will center about what can be done with digital cropping and other enhancements. 

Most photographs taken these days are digital, and digital manipulation after the photo is taken is an excellent way to achieve satisfying results. We will discuss this “post processing” for several editing programs, including the native “Preview” and "Photos" (Apple Mac platform) and  “Photos” (Microsoft Windows 10).   We will also cover the basics of the more advanced commercial programs such as Photoshop Elements and Lightroom,  as well as a free software program called Gimp. All of these software packages are available for Apple IOS and Microsoft Windows.

This interest group operates a separate interactive photography website As the fall session progresses,  course material and participant feedback will be posted on "" under the second Main Menu “CALL Photography Course”. This website is open to all CALL members, and participation in our weekly photo challenge is encouraged.

The 2017 CALL Digital Photography Fall session will be held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, starting September 12.

Location: Rosedale Community Centre 901 – 11th Ave N.W.  Beugin Hall (upstairs)
