January 24—David Wong: Photographing Your FiberDavid Wong David Wong is a local scenery and wildlife photographer and travels the world with his photography students. He will discuss camera set-ups (and for those of us less sophisticated, iPhones), settings, shooting environments and backgrounds. He will also focus on lighting to bring out the detail and depths of our pieces. Please bring a project or two for him to use to demonstrate how these factors can affect the image.
