IT'S A SNAP
The office manager of a busy upscale dental practice was frantically
working overtime to train her temporary replacement. Every detail needed to
be in order--she didn't want anything overlooked. The office needed to run
like clockwork while she was gone. She didn't want the pampered patients to
even notice she was missing. But most of all, once she left for her
maternity leave, she didn't want to be disturbed. The manger wanted to focus
all her attention on her newborn baby, and savor every moment of it.
She also planned to handle the recording of every memorable event in
the baby's life like she approached everything else--with planned
thoroughness. This meant researching, then shopping for the best digital
camera out on the market. And to ensure that she knew how to properly handle
it (no red-eyed, grainy images of *her* newborn baby), she took a *Video
Professor* course on digital photography. Through *Video Professor,* she
learned everything there was to operating a digital camera.
One of the most important functions she learned was the steps involved
in properly editing her photos. She could crop them, enhance the colors, and
even remove imperfections (not that her beautiful baby would have any). And,
the manager now knew how to adjust the contrast, and even how to combine
images. She loved the fact that now she had learned digital photography with
the *Video Professor,* she wouldn't have to bother buying film, which could
get expensive, and then waste time taking it in to get processed. She could
instantly see which pictures she wanted to keep, and print them out herself.
Another great feature she learned through *Video Professor* was
E-mailing the baby's pictures to friends and relatives who lived out of
town. She planned on sharing all her infant's milestones (and ministones).
She couldn't imagine having to get multiple sets of prints made, and then
taking the time to snail mail them out to everyone. And through *Video
Professor,* she now knew how to burn her pics to CD and DVD, and how to
store them on the computer. This would ensure the integrity of her memories.
She remembered going through her family's old photographs which had been
stored in the attic, and how frayed and faded they had become. And she also
recalled that when her niece was a toddler, she got into her family's box of
home movies and virtually shredded them all. With digital, her pictures
would have unlimited longevity.
The Big Day was rapidly approaching. There was one more detail to take
care of--making sure her husband knew how to properly use their new digital
camera. Luckily, he was a techie and he picked up on her instruction fast.
Which was a good thing, as she had a short labor and the baby came fast. She
liked that. Efficient. Just like her. Same personality; same looks. It
appeared this motherhood thing was going to be a snap. And with her newly
acquired *Video Professor* photography knowledge, she planned on snapping
plenty of it.
