Alan will discuss his thoughts on the most important issues in capturing images and ways to optimize those using current tools and workflow options.  He will then show some examples of the final prints.  It will be a casual interactive evening, so bring lots of questions.

Alan is the current competition chair and past president of the Schaumburg Area Photographic Society.  He a member of the Photographic Society of American and is the current Vice Chair of the local chapter.  Alan has been both an amateur photographer and a software engineer for close to 50 years.  He is a former large format film photographer and military camera image processing software developer.  He still makes his living developing software, but spends much of the rest of his time readily sharing his knowledge and passion for photography.
