Photographing Headstones by Jamie Cox -- Around 50,000 photos are taken for Find A Grave every day, but can anyone read them? Many gravestones stubbornly resist efforts to take a readable photograph. If you want to learn how to take truly readable gravestone photos, especially of those "problem" stones, this talk is for you. Jamie Cox is a retired engineer and amateur photographer. He will also give some tips on copying old photographs.
