BDC@ The Branches Program Series Returns

"Photos for Future Generations"
Sandy Dimke
Wed., Mar. 23rd
6:00pm - 7:00 pm
Old BDC Room, Beaufort Branch Library, 311 Scott Street

Dimke successfully documented what Beaufort is like today, by photographing the “hands” of over 100 people in town. Her exhibit was sponsored by the Beaufort Three-Century Project. In fact, you may have seen it in the Upstairs Gallery (just outside the new BDC Research Room back in December) at the Beaufort County Library or more recently in the Beaufort City Town Hall.

Sandy will explain how to make your family photographs more reflective of your life and times – so that 100 years from now they’ll still be interesting! Dimke will discuss methods of how to take interesting photos that future generations can treasure. She will offer ideas on locations, backgrounds, accessories and apparel that will tell the story of our lives today. In addition, practical instruction about how to label and archive digital photos will be provided.

This BDC @ The Branches program is free and open to anyone over age 12 interested in learning how to take digital photographs that document one’s place in time!
