The American Numismatic Association’s Florence Schook School of Numismatics is coming to Manchester, N.H., Oct. 24-25. “Fundamentals of Digital Photography” will be offered in conjunction with the New Hampshire Coin and Currency Expo.
This two-day seminar will be instructed by Douglas Mudd, curator of the ANA’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum. Attendees will learn the basics of numismatic photography, from shooting the image to preparing it for the Web, presentations or publication using Adobe Photoshop. Students should be prepared to bring their own macro-capable cameras and several coins they would like to photograph. Although not required, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops and software.
The seminar will be held both days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuition is $294 for members of the ANA and the New England Numismatic Association, and $394 for non-members. A basic ANA membership, available at www.money.org, is $28; NENA membership, available at www.nenacoin.org, is $12.50.
To register for the seminar, call (719) 482-9850 or register online at www.money.org. Select “School of Numismatics” from the “Numismatic Events” drop-down menu. Because the seminar is limited to 10 students, the ANA encourages those interested to register early.
