This month the Highland Senior Center would like to shine the light on one of their newest classes: Photography & Digital Imaging. The class is taught by Ricardo Tomboc, a San Bernardino Police Department Forensics Specialist, who apart from taking pictures for a living, teaches the class for the San Bernardino Adult Education program as well.
The class is on vacation, but will start up again after the new year. The sessions are eight weeks long, on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The class fee is $25 for seniors and non-seniors alike. The class is more for commercial photographers, or those wishing to learn to become commercial photographers. He will bring in models, and focus on composition. However, the class will also cover basic photographic principles and digital operations. If you don’t have a camera or are unsure which to buy, there will be some film SLR (single-lens reflex) cameras available as loaners, until you know what you are looking for. You can leave your Brownies at home.
You will also learn the ins and outs of digital photography. Student’s are responsible for the purchase and processing of any film. Whatever camera you do decide to bring, make sure it has manual adjustments or is an SLR.
Come by and register or call the Highland Senior Center at (909) 862-8104 for more information.
