Montgomery College’s Lifelong Learning Institute

To Host Photography Workshop for Seniors

Montgomery College’s Lifelong Learning Institute, which provides educational programs for senior citizens, will offer an information-packed, one-day workshop for serious amateur or professional photographers who want to market their work. The event is set for Saturday, Oct. 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Montgomery College’s Rockville Campus.

Participants will discover winning design ideas, while examining composition,  exposure, film, and equipment. They will also learn how to create consistently compelling and marketable images, as well as how to find a market for their own work, generate income, and get published. In addition, the workshop will cover digital input and output, posting work on free Web galleries, Web authoring software and design, and e-commerce. 

Tony Sweet, a Baltimore-based photographer and a frequent guest lecturer at universities, community colleges, camera clubs, and professional photography organizations, will lead the workshop. 

The fee for Maryland residents is $75; non-residents pay an additional $20. For more information, contact Gary Hong at 240-567-7869.
