The session will break down things that are seen as difficult photography concepts and attendees will leave the session knowing much more about how to use their camera. Leonard will talk about exposure, white balance, using the HDR setting, basic composition and more. He will also highlight free apps that everyone can download on their cell phone to improve images on the phone as well.

Leonard’s work is frequently seen in books, magazines, annual reports, brochures, textbooks, in television segments and nationally on the Weather Channel. Some of his work has also been seen on the National Geographic Wild program.
