    Meeting place: Pilot Imaging: 663 Southlawn Lane, Rockville, MD 20850

    Meeting time: March 6, Tuesday 7 pm - 9 pm


    Paul Biederman, M.Photo, Photographic Craftsman


    Paul Biederman has achieved numerous photographic awards from the MDPPA, SEPPA, PPA, BCC, MARS the Ward Museum, and various Orchid Societies. He has taught numerous courses on: Macrophotography, Photoshop, and Lightroom; coaches individuals; and is a judge-in-training with the PPA. Paul dabbled with photography as a youth. In 1970 he purchased a Nikkomat-ftn with a 55mm Micro-Nikkor lens and Lester Dine Macro-flash to record dental pathology and capture nature photography. He joined the digital revolution in 2000 with an Olympus Camedia, enabling him to combine his photographic skills, artistic endeavors and computer-digital acumen. As a nature photographer he became limited in fieldwork after two motor vehicle accidents and as a result spent more time developing his post processing and artistic skills. Paul also found a second love, teaching photography. He found that when teaching, just like competition, his overall photographic skills and artistic endeavors greatly evolved and improved. Paul loves to teach and share his knowledge with other photographers. With his attainment of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman he feels an additional obligation to teach and coach photography.



    During his presentation Paul will demonstrate and teach how to apply a simple, and repeatable step-by-step methodology to “develop” your digital images. Overall, Paul works from global to granular, interspersed with creative artistic interpretation, to recreate the feelings and artistic vision when he captured his image. First, in LR he accomplishes eighty percent of the three T’s: tone, tint and texture adjustments. LR was and is designed for photographers to work in a non-destructive manner on their images. But, LR has limitations. Knowing the limitations he will switch between LR and PS to complete his vision.  Additionally, Paul will demonstrate an artistic creation using PS and LR to give personal interpretation and meaning to the image. Join him and become inspired. Share his enthusiasm, knowledge and thought processing in THE CREATIVE PIXEL DARKROOM®.


    Please join Pilot Imaging and PPSGW (Professional Photographer Society of Greater Washington) on Tuesday February 6th at 7pm at Southlawn Studios at Pilot Imaging for a presentation by local photographer Joshua Dunn. Joshua will be discussing his amazing architectural works using HDR and Focus stacking techniques to create large (5'x8'!) panoramas. Each photograph is assembled using between 700-2400 individual images to "build" his final image. Please see his bio below! The presentation is free to PPSGW members, and is only $10 for non members.

    Joshua Dunn is a photographer based in the Washington D.C. area. He is a husband, a father and a veteran who is recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Master of Fine Arts in Photography program. Originally trained as a large format film photographer he has been photographing for over twenty years. He currently is an adjunct Professor at Montgomery College in Rockville Maryland.

    Primarily focusing on architecture Joshua creates multiple-row, focus stacked, high dynamic range panoramas in digital format. This arduous technique allows for ultra high-resolution photographs producing amazing detail. Still believing in the importance of the fine art print this technique allows him to print many of these photographs as large as 5’x8’.
