The next regular, second-Saturday-of-the-month meeting of the Utah Valley PAF (Personal Ancestral File) Users Group will be on Saturday, 12 Jul 2008, from 9 am until noon in the LDS "Red" Chapel at 4000 North Timpview Drive (650 East), in Provo. The main presentation will be by Marlo Schuldt on DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY IN FAMILY HISTORY. He will discuss things to look for in buying a digital camera, including the lens and a digital card reader.
He will also discuss using your camera including fill-in flashes in the shade, candid photos, creating natural frames, getting clear pictures, panoramas, optical vs digital zoom, indexing your photos with GPS coordinates, getting in the picture yourself, shooting both stills and video with your digital camera, and using your camera to photograph documents that are too big to scan.
Marlo Schuldt is President of LifeStory Productions, Inc., an Orem, Utah based company that develops family history software and provides assistance to individuals desiring to gather, prepare, print and share family history. He earned both BS and MS degrees from Brigham Young University in Communications.
