LPC’s speaker for January 9th is Robert W. Fawcett.

From Robert’s Website:

Robert W. Fawcett (Bob) – Retired from 31 years of Government service, 26 of those years as a Forensic/Scientific/Technical Photographer. Growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the interest in photography began early with Dad taking the family on those weekend drives through the country taking in the scenery down those back roads never explored. Little did I know back then that it would become a career that would take me on a journey to places around the globe. That journey began in Washington, DC in October of 1985.

As I continue the journey, the plan is to share with others the passion of photography and pass along the experiences from the days of film to the current digital world. From the beginning and up to this present time, I have always been a true believer of shooting in manual mode using the three thing of what photography is: ISO, Aperture, and Shutter. When mastered, one can be in total control of light and the vision in your mind to capture the creative images you desire.
