My passion for photography began many years ago while processing black and white images in a high school darkroom. While the world of photography has changed a lot since those days, the passion of capturing images and painting with light has not. My areas of special interest in photography are in the realm of wildlife and nature photography. I continue to learn from, and enjoy every new photographic challenge I can find.
I am 2 time past president of the Enchanted Lens Camera Club, an active member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, Nature Photographers Network, and the North American Nature Photographers Association. In each of the past 2 years, I have won awards in the ANPA International Showcase competition. I was the recipient of First Place in the Nature Photographers Network International Avian Photo competition with an image titled “Bosque Mist”.
My full time job is in the world of computing at Sandia National Labs where I manage a software development group. The marriage of computing and digital photography has been a natural for me. I truly enjoy sharing my knowledge of photography with others and have been active teaching digital post processing where Iʼm a recognized expert.
I hope youʼll consider joining me for my Photoshop classes to take your post processing skills to the next level.
Instructor: Jeremy Stein
My history in photography includes formal and candid portraiture, scientific and technical photography, product and commercial work, high-speed recording of explosive devices in action, nanosecond exposures of electric arcs, and most recently, nature photography.
Technical factors are deeply intertwined with almost any photographic effort, but especially with close-up photography, which is not as simple as taking more conventional pictures. Special equipment is usually needed, particularly for higher magnification photos. The best results can only be obtained by avoiding the pitfalls in macro work and by using your best picture-making technique. In this class I will show you the various equipment choices with their pros and cons, and show you how to use this equipment to your advantage. Although it is certainly possible to spend large amounts of money to buy special-purpose macro hardware, I will show you methods which result in good photos for surprisingly few dollars.
