Converting Africa: Getting The Style You Want Out of Your Raw Data
Wednesday, July 22, 2009 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Event Type: Photography
Skill Level: Basic, Intermediate
Photographer and writer Thom Hogan will present images from his trip to Eastern Africa that look unlike anything you’ve ever seen from that region of world. Thom will share with you the exact choices he made during his photographic workflow, and explain the reasoning behind how he executed his post processing. Next, he’ll repeat his slideshow in a different style. This is a rare opportunity to see how one of the pioneer digital shooters approaches the data he captures. This presentation is not about how to emulate Thom’s unique style of images, so no step-by-step instructions are going to be provided, but rather a discussion of your photographic instinct should influence your decision making processing.
Thom Hogan was an early adopter of digital imaging, so much so that he helped designed what is now known as the Logitech QuickCam in the mid-1990’s. A student of Galen Rowell and the former editor of Backpacker magazine, Thom has roamed the world taking photographs in wild places from one end of the planet to the other. Thom has written over 30 books on computers and photography, and written numerous magazine and Web articles.
