The Wellesley Free Library is hosting a workshop on digital photography basics and computer use from 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5. This workshop will provide an overview of digital photography to include selecting a camera (compact, SLR) and printer, image file formats, and basic techniques for adjusting the quality of digital photographs for printing, emailing, and displaying on the web.

The program will also look at storage options both for the camera and computer, transferring images from the camera to the computer, and accessories to make the process easier. Other topics include free services where you can share photos with family and friends, data recovery, and a demonstration of basic photo editing.

The class is designed for adults with some computer experience. Advance registration is required; sign up online, by calling 781-235-1610, or in person at the main library, which is located at 530 Washington St.

A two-part workshop on digital camera use will be held next month at the Raynham Public Library, 760 South Main St. At 7 p.m. on Nov. 12 and Nov. 19, members of the Hockomock Digital Photographers, a West Bridgewater camera club, will present a primer on digital camera use. The first session will focus on camera basics and terminology related to digital imaging. Part two will focus on digital darkroom techniques. Participation is free, but registration is required. Call the library at 508-823-1344.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
