The ability to compose and distribute a powerful image online is as vital a skill in business as it is in our personal lives. Compose still photos and video, and build technical skills in editing and online distribution.
Multimedia journalists from the Common Language Project will help you learn advanced features of point and shoot and digital SLR cameras, as well as the basics of photo editing software and the tools for sharing your photos online.
