Getting the Most from Your Point & Shoot Digital Camera with Fred Bird Photography

Date of Program:  Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Visit the Enfield Public Library on Wednesday, July 9th at 7:00 PM for, Getting the Most from Your Point & Shoot Digital Camera with Fred Bird Photography.

Fred Bird, owner of Fred Bird Photography will present a two hour lecture entitled, Getting the Most from Your Point & Shoot Digital Camera.  Many people feel they cannot take a good picture with a digital camera.  One of the most crucial elements in taking a really great image is composition.  Fred will teach about proper composition and also the importance of the light meter on digital cameras.  Patrons will learn where to find and change some of the simple settings in the point and shoot camera that will make the difference in their photographs.  He will also share how to correct for density and color in digital photography. 

Fred Bird’s experience with photography began forty years ago while working on his high school year book, and continued when he worked in aerial surveillance during his three years with the U.S. Army.  Fred then worked with the Connecticut State Police for twenty two years as a trooper and a sergeant.  During his time with the Connecticut State Police, Fred also operated a part time wedding/portrait studio, but his employment with a state service caused a conflict of interest with many of his commercial/legal photographic assignments.  Not one to be deterred, Fred attended many photography schools and seminars, as well as several classes in photography, while working on getting his bachelor’s degree in police science from the University of New Haven.  When Fred retired in 1986, he opened Fred Bird Photography in Ellington, Connecticut, a full service commercial studio working in the areas of Industrial, Commercial, Legal and Aerial photography.
