Today we got a lesson in photography. Sarah, the digitization and photographs associate at USD, taught us how to use the Archives’ Pentax digital camera to take high-resolution photographs for our student projects. She introduced us to the camera and helped us figure out everything from changing the lens cover to setting the light manually. We struggled at first but, with practice, we became more comfortable with the camera. As you can see in these before and after shots, we went from major lighting issues to near perfection in no time!
