San Diego County Fair
Workshop Materials and Resources

NOTE:  you can also use the link above (or click here) to go to my City College Page where there are lots of downloadable materials and technical handouts for students. I will be presenting five 60-90 minute workshops on various aspects of digital photography during the 2010 San Diego County Fair.  Below is a list of my presentations for this year, and below that are links to access handouts and other materials that will be relevant to those presentations. 

The PowerPoint  slide shows are the ones I use at the Fair.  You are welcome to download them for reference.  However they are designed for computer display and contain internal animations and transitions which just printing them will not reveal.

You can click on the topics in the workshop list below to go to the list of materials.  Some of the files are larger illustrated handouts so please be patient while they open or download.

And come check out the Photo Program at
San Diego City College where many of these topics are taught in far more detail in our classes and workshops and in our brand new 30,000 sq ft facility!
