Hawaii Photograph Workshop with Thom Hogan: Day 1.
Four years ago today, I arrived in Hawaii to attend a photography workshop with Thom Hogan. It was hard to believe the day before I was in Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge in northern Colorado. At this point, it was just over a year since I purchased my first DSLR camera – a Nikon D200. Soon after getting the camera, I found Thom’s web site which became a very helpful resource as I was learning to use the camera (much more useful than the Nikon manual provided with the camera). I purchased his guides for the D200 (and subsequently the guides for the D2xs, D300, D700, D3, D3x, D3s). These guides are by far the best resource for understanding the capabilities of the Nikon digital cameras. It was just over four years ago I saw in Thom’s web site that there was a late opening for his Hawaii workshop over Thanksgiving week. I signed up right away since I knew that there was a lot more that I needed to learn to become a better photographer. At the time, I was working in Boulder Colorado (which was closer than New Jersey) and a great way to use some of my vacation time.
