On September 18th, Wetpixel owner Eric Cheng had the opportunity to speak to the Wildlife Photographers of Silicon Valley (WPSV) at their monthly dinner meeting. Eric discussed the role of software in photography and how to leverage it in one’s work, supplementing his talk with photographs of sharks, whales, and dolphins taken on some of his many trips.
Overheard comments after Eric Cheng’s presentation at the meeting included the following:
What an amazing opportunity…to be able to shoot big stuff and have a guide to show you where it is and when it’s coming…as in the Bahamas and Tonga images.
Eric is easy to just walk up and speak to about any subject…and it’s great to have a “go-to” person when you don’t have the answers yourself. He seems to grasp from where I’m coming, so I don’t have to spend a half-hour giving background on my capabilities.
The talk was well received by the nearly fifty people in attendance. If you’re in the area, be sure to check out the WPSV website for information about membership and to see a list of upcoming speakers.
