    Speaker Bio:
    My 20 plus year career in graphic design began in 1983. During that time approximately 50% of that time I was a self employed freelance designer/production artist. I knew full well what it was like to pull together my own benefits. I had to shop for my own insurance and learned how it applied to my needs, sometimes the hard way. In 2001, after over 8 years with a great company with full benefits, I experienced a layoff as the company downsized and then closed a short while later. In 2002 I obtained my insurance license and my new career began. At this point, I have 15 years experience helping others find health plans that meet their needs. As an independent agent, I am self employed and still shop for my own health plan. Being an independent agent allows me to offer plans from various carriers and offer an objective overview of what is available. My approach is to educate and consult. The idea is to help clients choose what will best meet their needs and fit their budget.

    Do you wonder why your photos don’t look like what you expected? It’s such a beautiful world. Why are photos that come out of our cameras so flat and unemotional? It’s because our eyes can see more light than a camera can capture. The solution to capturing the beauty of a shot is HDR.

    HDR is an abbreviation for high dynamic range. HDR photography allows you to create stunning and mind-blowing photos that include incredible lighting, color, and detail you couldn’t otherwise achieve by taking a single photo. An HDR photo displays maximum details for recreating all the beauty you perceived at the moment you took the shot.

    When it comes to editing and creating your HDR photos, Aurora HDR is the world’s most powerful HDR software made exclusively for the Mac (coming soon for PC). Aurora HDR is a joint project developed by Macphun, an award-winning software company, and Trey Ratcliff, the world’s most renowned HDR photographer. Aurora HDR is fast, easy to use, and allows you to create stunning HDR photos in minutes.

    Here’s what you’ll learn:
    The basics of HDR photography

    • The benefits of HDR
    • Tips, advice, and secrets of HDR
    • About the Mac app Aurora HDR
    • How to create and edit HDR photos
