W Central GA Chapter Monthly Meeting Speaker
June 9, 2015 - Hybrid Photography - Tom Simpson
Tom began his interest in photography at age 14 starting with a home-made dark room for contact printing. He expanded into photo microscopy and underwater photography through college. His entry into digital photography began with the Sony 717, before moving to a Canon 7D and more recently the Panasonic mirrorless GH4.
He has been on the board of the GNPA, leads some photography field trips, led the club in the NGC3 Shootout in 2013 (when the GNPA won 1st place), and has images published in The Natural Communities of Georgia, the journal of the National Wildlife Federation, and has a permanent gallery of urban prints at the Uptown Café in Johns Creek, GA. His favorite targets are "birds in flight" and macrophotography but enjoys a very wide array of other topics including other wildlife, landscapes, etc.
Hybrid photography is a new interest Tom has that couples the capabilities of digital cameras to link still images with videos to provide an interesting extension of the story we want to capture.
