The Basics and Beyond
David Wong and Gang
All photographs always use aspects of the basics of photography to make them really good
All memorable or winning photographs build upon the basics of photography as foundational building blocks in addition to any advance techniques employed in creating a special photograph.
This presentation, while aiming at the newer photographers, will demonstrate how paying attention to the basics can improve their photography while at the same time show how more advanced photographers used the basics and beyond to build winning photographs.
David will share his vision and process for creating his photos in four stages, including: • Story or vision • Photographic principles • Using the physical tools • Print & presentations.
David, along with Mike Shea, Kathy Triolo, Bill Wages, Douglas Hooper, and Ellen Davis will share some of their favorite photos and demonstrate how they employed the basics to build their photos and then go beyond to make memorable photographs.
David Wong is an award-winning photographer that has displayed in galleries in New York and California. He teaches workshops locally and overseas. He has won Photograph of the Year three times in the NCCC club awards.
