"My general approach for an all day seminar is to present two shows: The day is kicked off with a Nature and Wildlife show. A second show is presented during the afternoon session, featuring Travel destinations. Both shows are presented without music, so audience participation is encouraged during all programs. The program is entitled "Through the Lens of Adam Jones." During the Nature program I discuss strategies and techniques for outstanding nature and wildlife images."
Morning: Nature and Wildlife Show (This program highlights strategies and techniques for outstanding nature and wildlife images)

Afternoon: Travel Show (This program highlights travel from 9 different countries and demonstrates techniques and strategies for great travel images.)

Both shows are presented without music, so audience participation is encouraged during all programs. At least three of the following four programs will also be presented.

1. Taking Control: Covers Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, and Focus; Where to be in control of these variables, and how to use them creatively using side by side image comparisons.

2. Lighting & Composition: Centers on developing your awareness of natural light and learning to use the elements of design to create award winning compositions. Flash will also be discussed.

3. Extending the Limits: Focuses on photo realistic HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging; Helicon Focus software for unlimited depth of field; Expo Disc for correct white balance in the field; and the use DXO Optics pro for batch converting raw images.

4. Photoshop: Demonstrates Adam’s workflow through Adobe Camera Raw and DXO Optics Pro using raw images. Also includes demo stitching panoramic images, and unlimited depth of field via Helicon Focus.

This season is a special one for our club in that we are celebrating our 100 year anniversary!
