Learning to use cameras

Yesterday, after much time of learning computer, sms and Internet in cybercafé center, the participants and I went to walk near the river Niger in Dioro. It was about to go to learn how to use cameras to make pictures and videos.

In villages, we always see this small device with tourists and projects people but, more people don’t know how to use it even if we always have curiosity to touch it. One of the purposes of this training is to teach to participants how to make photos and videos and use them in posts on blogs.

Each participant, with a camera, discovered the manner we use it. Every one made photos. When we have been back to the cybercafé center, they learnt how to transfer photos from cameras to computer, how to modify them and send them as files by mail to some others. They also learnt how to use pictures into post in blogs.
