Photography as a Retirement Hobby Presented by Dan Feighery, PATACS
Dan will show and talk about the various pictures he has taken over the past few years with a digital single lens reflex camera. He will discuss why it is sometimes useful to take the camera off “Auto” mode while you do the thinking about what will be in the picture space. Photos will range from scenic and nature images through sports actions shots to abstract images (without an immediately recognizable subject). Included will be local places to find interesting subjects, activities with local photo clubs, travel photography and an overview of a free downloadable image editing program called Faststone.
Dan Feighery is a retired Air Force officer, an avid photographer who has taken numerous photographs for the OLLIE E-News, and other activities; established the OLLI Photography club, is a member of several local photo clubs, and teaches OLLI photography courses.
Learn in 30: Nomorobo Fighting Robo Calls Presented by Judy Taylour
Are you tired of getting a gazillion robo calls? The phone rings, you answer, and there is no one there. “Hello, I’m Rachel from Card Holder Services….” “Can you hear me?” “Your car warranty is about to expire.” “This is your grandson, I’m in jail…” Pay what you owe the IRS or you are going to jail. This session will cover the “National Do Not Call Act” as well as how to stop robo calls with Nomorobo that helps stop those annoying calls as well as telemarketers.
