Fundamentals of Photography in the Field
While most photographers know about the elements that go into making a photograph, very few actively think about the effects of each photographic decision before clicking the shutter. Tom will demonstrate the importance of purposely choosing each of the three elements of exposure. He’ll also illustrate how to choose the right lens, and how to get your camera in the ideal position to tell the story you intend. Regardless of your experience and skill level, this in depth review will help you stay more conscious of the fundamentals of photography while you’re still out shooting so you’ll come back having captured what you intended.
When not photographing accident scenes and wrecked cars for work, Tom specializes in making landscape and travel images. In 2001, he completely switched to digital for the incredible control it allows from the exposure in the field through the fine print. Tom began teaching digital photography and Photoshop with Bill Lea in 2004, and has taught numerous workshops, made scores of presentations, and judged and critiqued for many photo contests, exhibitions, and photo club image reviews since. He equally enjoys capturing images in the field, and post-processing and printing back at home. Tom is current president of GNPA. His work can be seen on his website www.tomvadnais.com.
