© 2010 David H. Wells

On March 4, visual storyteller David H. Wells will show his work at the Color Camera Club of Westchester in a travel-themed slideshow presentation called “Making Your Travel Photos Work.” This lecture will focus on key components of travel photography, including tips for proper exposure settings, equipment guidelines and advice for interacting with photo subjects. Through his instruction, Wells will also focus on mastery of composition, depth of field, light and exposure. During his 40-year career, Wells has traveled the world as a freelance photographer, working for such distinguished publications as National Geographic, Life and The New York Times. He was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for his work on pesticide poisoning at The Philadelphia Inquirer. Wells has also been awarded several grants and fellowships, from groups such as the Fulbright Program, National Press Photographers Association and the MacArthur Foundation. A Q&A with the audience will follow the presentation, which will take place at American Legion Hall in Valhalla. For more info, visit colorcameraclub.com.
