Mac classes – May 2017

Apologies to anyone that may be wondering what happened to the class newsletter this month, but I'm afraid I had a bit of a 'perfect storm' of circumstances (including two different commitments that involved travel), that combined to keep me from posting this until today. Thanks for your patience!!

I will reiterate my big news from March one last time, that the Ridgway Library is no longer able to offer my free last-Wednesday-of-the-month classes. Don't worry; even though I won't be doing those specific classes for free any longer, I will continue to offer lots of classes, and some will be free, so be sure to read the fine print on every class. The number of venues I will be teaching at continues to grow, and I'm excited about that. Lastly, I've only got a couple of things on the docket for May, due to the confusion that led to the lateness of this email.

As spring turns to summer, there's so much going on that it's hard to squeeze in a lot of classes!

On to the details...

Class list for May 2017:

  • Sat., May 20th, from 1-4 pm at the Ridgway Library: "iPhotography"; a three-hour, in-depth exploration of intensive covering everything you need to know to get the absolute best photos possible out of your iPhone! Sign up with Weehawken Creative Arts. Cost is $35 for this 3 hour class.
  • Thurs., May 25th, from 6-8 pm at the Ridgway Proximity Space, by continued demand, I'll be revisiting Apple's "Photos" program. Cost for this class is $20.
Please do let me know if you plan to attend either of these classes; if I get enough commitments ahead of time, I don't have to send out a nagging reminder!

 First off, on Saturday, May 20th, from 1-4 pm, at the Ridgway Library, I'll be teaching "iPhotography". This stimulating class, presented by Weehawken Creative Arts, will be an intensive exploration of iPhone photography. As the quality of cameras in smartphones like the iPhone increases, it's easier than ever to always have a great camera with you. But wait, you say, why are my photos always blurry, or just so-so? It's mostly because you need to learn how to use the device properly, and there definitely are tricks to using the iPhone's camera! So sign up for this class, and learn how to start getting really good photos out of your iPhone. As a bonus, we'll spend some time learning about the dozens of powerful camera apps available for your device, from the Instagram craze to the more techy HDR realm, and everything in between. Registration is $35.. Sign up with Weehawken if you'd like to attend.

 Then, on Thursday, May 25th from 6-8 pm at the Ridgway Proximity Space, by continued demand, I'll once again be covering Apple's new "Photos" program for Yosemite, El Capitan and now Sierra. Many people are getting more than a little discombobulated by the switch to Photos, but it's actually quite a powerful upgrade from iPhoto. Of course, there's a whole new interface to learn! If you're running Yosemite, El  Cap, or even Sierra on your Mac, you'll want to take this class to learn all the ins & outs of the new program. Please, do let me know if you plan to attend. Cost is $20.

I'm wishing you a splendid spring full of wonderful opportunities for taking pictures with your iPhone! hope to see you at a class sometime soon!
