OLLI Instructor of the Week: Ed Hamilton
Ed Hamilton first developed his interest in photography back in the 1960s, during the film days. His military career offered many opportunities to pursue his hobby and he even had his own darkroom. Still, life got in the way over time and photography took a back seat. With the advent of digital photography, his interest was rekindled, and for the last four years he has vigorously pursued development of his skills, particularly with regard to Adobe® Lightroom.

Thank you Ed, for sharing your wisdom with OLLI, we appreciate you!
