                       Presenter:  Jim Kuiphof  -
  Jim will be talking about an easy to remember method that affects how you create photos, how you review and filter photos, and how you do post processing on photos to make good photos great and great photos excellent.

A little bit about Jim:

In his day job, Jim works in information technology and security, but photography is a passion and large part of his life ever since he touched his first SLR some 20 years ago. A technologist at heart, Jim fell in love with the technology of digital photography with the first DSLR he touched (a Canon D30) in 2001. The immediate feedback accelerated his learning curve creating a great creative outlet.


Over the last 14 years, Jim has shot sports, weddings, corporate portraits, scenery, and documented key events. A perpetual student, he continually challenges himself to become a better photographer and enjoys keeping up on the latest photography technology including camera bodies, lenses, lighting equipment, and post processing tools and techniques. He has taught photography classes and enjoys introducing new photographers to the fascinating combination of art, science, and technology found in the amazing universe that is photography.
