Tacloban seminar features US veteran photographer

A Digital Photography and Photoshop Seminar is scheduled to be conducted at the Asian Convention Center along Real St. Corner Avenida Veteranos in Tacloban City on January 26 - 27, 2009.

Mr. Orlando Uy, immediate past president of the Leyte Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that this is a very rare opportunity as it is not often that such a seminar is offered in Tacloban City.

Moreso, Mr. Uy said that the participants will have the chance to learn from an expert as the resource speaker, Mr. Dave Fowler, is a veteran photographer from the United States holding degrees in Master of Photography and Master Craftsman.

In this seminar, Mr. Dave Fowler will share his favorite digital photography and Photoshop techniques. For each image he shows, he will offer a tip or a technique. The techniques the participants will learn will be worth more than the cost of the entire program.

Mr. Fowler has been in the photography business for over 30 years. He entered his first print competition in 1991 and earned his Master of Photography Degree in 1997 and his Master Craftsman Degree in 2001. With the exception of two "scenic" images, all of his print merits came from customer files. Fowler has had two Loan Prints, one EPCOT Center print and one of only 36 images accepted for display at the 1997 International Photokina Exhibit in Cologne, Germany.

Mr. Fowler started working with digital in 1997 scanning proofs and doing special effects for seniors. Since that time he has graduated to being a full digital studio. The studio does an average of 150 seniors per year …all digital.

The seminar will cover basic and advanced photography on Day 1. A workshop on Outdoor shoot will be conducted towards the end of the day, Mr. Uy said.

On the second day, the participants will learn how to use Adobe Photoshop for photo editing, Mr. Uy further said.

Every participant is required to pay the registration fee of P3,000.00 inclusive of lunch during the duration of the seminar.

The participants are also required to bring digital camera and jacket or raincoat for the photo shoot.(PIA 8)
