Cole Thompson is uniquely unqualified to speak on photography.
“I’ve never taken a photography class or a workshop. I don’t have a degree in art. I’ve never worked as a photographer. I don’t have gallery representation. I’m not a Canon Explorer of Light. I have only three lenses and none of them are primes.
Do I have any qualifications?
Just one…my images. Nothing else matters.”
Why Black and White?
in 75 minutes Cole Thompson will make the case that black and white is the perfect medium for any subject…except for one. Cole will show work from his various portfolios including:
The Ghosts of Auschwitz-Birkenau
Moai, Sitting for Portrait
The Lone Man
Interspersed between the images Cole will share his photographic philosophies, such as:
Never listen to others
Coles Rule of Thirds
Equipment is overrated
Vision is the most important tool in my toolbox
And many others!
At the end of his presentation Cole will answer questions and give away a print of The Angel GabrielFind out more »

Want to learn how to go beyond simply making static portraits of your subjects? Technological advances have now made stop action photography accessible to virtually every photographer. This all new program starts off with using just your camera, natural light, and auto-focus for subjects on the move such as birds in flight and running animals. We will discuss special exposure techniques for action, acquiring initial focus-lock, tracking your subject, optimizing your auto focus, and the creative doors opened by adding a simple infrared trigger system and much more!

Topic: I will be presenting Dragging the Shutter during this evening's webinar. This presentation explores all the various techniques of “Dragging the shutter” or balancing the exposure of strobe and ambient light sources in one photo. For example: taking a
photo of someone outside at night by using a portable flash and also capturing the city lights in the background. There is quite a lot to know about this technique because it involves color balance as well as exposure balance. Bobbi explains
how to determine the proper balance of exposure between the two light sources - flash and ambient - then how to creatively play by shaking or spinning the camera, zooming the lens, panning and more. The flash will light the subject and
freeze any motion, and then moving the camera will blur the ambient light in the background in a variety of ways. Adding gels to the flash can making the color of the light sources correct, or for creating unusual effects. This technique can be used for people at twilight, product shots, flowers outside, etc. It’s a creative and fun way to make your photos more dynamic and effective.
