"Fast Glass for Night Photography"
by Roman Kurywczak, ANEC-New Jersey
Sponsored in Part by Sigma
Monday, November 7, 7:30 PM

Our first program for November is an educational how-to program designed to open up your eyes to the possibility of photographing landscapes after dark. Whether it is the natural landscape with the star filled sky as a backdrop or even venturing out to photograph the landscapes or city lights from a helicopter, Sigma Pro Roman Kurywczak will cover everything from equipment, camera settings, tips, and techniques so participants can create stunning night images of their own. He will discuss ‘light painting’ of a foreground subject as well as overcoming obstacles when the conditions are less than ideal.

Our speaker has been a professional nature photographer for over 15 years who conducts lectures and workshops across the globe. His boutique tour company, ‘Roamin with Roman Photo Tours’, caters to small groups to provide the ultimate learning experience for participants. Whether he is in Tanzania or standing before a roaring waterfall in Iceland, Roman’s energy and passion for nature photography are clearly evident. You can often find him out in Arches or Yellowstone late at night photographing the nighttime landscapes and calling it fun! Closer to home, he will spend countless hours doing macro photography. While he enjoys photographing insects, his favorite subject is flowers. Roman is equally comfortable photographing landscapes, macro subjects, and wildlife whether he is at an exotic location with his tour group or close to home

His down to earth and easy to follow teaching style make him a highly sought after lecturer. He has won numerous awards locally, as well as nationally, and has presented programs and workshops at photo clubs, conferences, and photo fests across the country. The author of several instructional eBooks on nature photography, Roman strives to share his passion for photography as others have shared with him. A proud member of the Sigma Pro team, you can find his photo galleries, blog, tour schedule, and more on his website at www.roaminwithroman.com
