Porter Library program focuses on taking better pictures

"Defending the Food" by Michele Schneider is one of the photos on display at Porter Library through January.

Do you want to take better pictures? Do you have questions about cameras, lenses and software processing?

Then you should attend a program open to the public on photography presented by members of the Lakewood Photographic Society. The meeting is open to anyone interested in photography and will be held on Sunday, Jan. 11, 1 to 3 p.m., in Porter Room of Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road.

The program will present information on how to take better pictures with your digital camera, how to best use the functions of your camera and how to process digital pictures using various software programs. 

In addition to the Jan. 11 program, there will be a monthlong photographic display of winning photographs of members of the Lakewood Photographic Society. The photographic show will be on display in the Porter Library art gallery throughout the month of January. Photographers displaying their photographs include: Donna Seemuth, Jack Seemuth, Tom Keyes, Tom Litzler, Dave Streator, Kevin Arnold, Lloyd Keller, Annabelle Keller, Bob Parry and Michele Schneider.
